All passes are exciting. Passing the theory test makes a person feel like they halfway towards their driving licence. It can be a very nerve-wracking event after hours and hours spent revising. At the end of the test, the candidate is immediately given a letter carefully folded over so that the result cannot be seen instantly. The relief when it is opened and the first word is ‘Congratulations’ is amazing.
Well, yesterday, Jacob Burgess from Weald village experienced that euphoria after taking his theory test at the Sidcup test centre. All that revision was most definitely worth while in the end. In a few weeks we shall be going for the Practical Test in Sevenoaks and I am confident that Jacob will see success again. Onwards and upwards.
Welcome to the brand new Learning Blog of teresa-allen.co.uk! We thought we’d take our first steps here in the blogosphere helping you as you take your first steps closer to the freedom of the open road.
You’ll have to get yourself a provisional driving licence if you are going to learn to drive a car or motorcycle and there’s no reason not to do that right now! There are countless miles of road out there to be explored, in this country as well as across the continents of the world. Sure, it’ll take up to three weeks before you hold your provisional licence in your hands but you have everything you need to get started right now! Let’s get you on the road!
I’m serious now; You cannot take driving lessons until you have received your first provisional licence … If you put this off until next week, it’ll be up to four weeks before you can start driving- 5 weeks if you wait until the week after and so on! … Don’t put it off. Check out the video below and get started now!
You can apply for your provisional licence online, from the comfort of your home and within a reassuring distance of the plentiful bounty of the refrigerator right now using the secure and fairly straightforward service offered by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA).
Watch the video, then click the link below to get started now: There is plenty of information on the pages that follow…
Psst … if you’ve had a provisional licence before you can’t use this online service!
Applying by Post
Another way to apply for your first provisional licence is to fill out the famous D1 form; you can get this from your local branch of the Post Office®. Filling out a D1 form will cost you £50.00, a bic pen and you will need to enclose identity documents. Also, you may have to wait in line at the wholly unimpressive speed of 0mph for a while but trust me … it’s worth it!
Your Post Office® may offer a premium checking service (that is, they will check your original identity documentation for you), otherwise, fill out the D1, get your self a colour passport-style photograph then bung it, some cash and the required identity docs in the envelope and send it back to: DVLA, Swansea, SA99 1AD (yes, that is the whole address)…
Aaarrggghhh… I’ve Been Waiting HOURS For My Licence!
The DVLA aims to get your driving licence out to you within’ three weeks. Don’t bother contacting them to ask where it is after 2 days (although I do admire your tenacity)…
