Pupiline's Top Tips On What To Do... After You've Taken The Driving Test
OK I've taken the Theory and The Practical Driving Test, whether I've past or failed what are my next steps?
Well if you havenít passed your driving test, donít worry you can re-take it again and many people become better driver by having the extra lessons and taking the test again. You can re-apply straight after not passing the test, but you canít re-take before ten working days have gone by.
If youíve passed then youíre ready for the open road, BUT there are few more things that you have to sort out before you can go cruising around the town, and also a few extra things you may want to sort out.
Oh Yeah, Like What?
First of all, youíll have to exchange your pass certificate, given to you at the end of the test by the examiner, for your FULL LICENCE, A.S.A.P, although you can leave it for two years before it becomes invalid. Though its better not to do this because youíll have to take the both tests again.
To get your Full UK Driving Licence, all you need to do is fill in the declaration section on your pass certificate. Then send it with your provisional Photocard licence, your provisional paper licence and the fee of £8.50 to the Driving and Vehicle Licensing Association (DVLA) at this address,
Or ring 0870 240 009, or e-mail at email@example.com
