Learning to drive and getting that coveted pink licence is a rite of passage for many, but it can leave a sizeable dent in your wallet as well.
But a little planning can save you a few quid, giving you more funds to put towards your first car.
When learning to drive, a fee to obtain your provisional licence will be one of the first costs you’ll encounter. This is £34 if you apply online, or £43 by post. This will allow you to drive a scooter or quad bike from age 16, and to drive a car at 17, as long as you are supervised by an approved instructor.
This type of licence will cover you for when you are learning to drive. But once you have passed your driving test your provisional licence will be exchanged to a full drivers licence for free.
