Before you start

We will now ask you a few questions about your eligibility for a first provisional driving licence and then confirm your identity.

You'll need to provide:

  • your email and password if you have a Driver and vehicles account
  • your identity document number. You can use a:
    • UK passport (a passport that expired within the last 12 months can be used for this service)
    • non UK passport
    • biometric residence permit
    • biometric residence card
    • national identity card
  • your National Insurance number if you know it
  • you may also have to provide addresses where you've lived over the last 3 years
By providing these details, it will help speed up your application and may avoid you having to verify your identity by post.

You will also need to provide a valid photo and signature for your provisional licence. We may be able to use your passport photo and signature if your passport has one.
