The training, testing and licensing of drivers is regulated by the Motor Vehicles (Driving Licences) Regulations (Subsidiary Legislation 65.18).
No person is allowed to drive any motor vehicle or a motor cycle unless in possession of either a valid driving licence or a learner’s permit which has been issued by the Authority.
Identify an Instructor The first step is to identify someone to train you.
There’s no fee if you’re over 70 or have a medical short period licence.You’ll need to complete a D1form – which you can get from the Post Office or by ordering it here.You’ll need to send supporting information such as a marriage certificate, decree absolute or Deed Poll certificate. You’ll also need to send your photocard and counterpart (if before June 8, 2015), or your old-style paper licence.The choice of lesson sequence is at the instructor’s discretion depending on your progress and ability.However, all lessons indicated on the Student Record Sheet must have been taught before an application is submitted (See student record sheets for SRS Category A, SRS Category B, SRS Category C and SRS Category D).
