  • Your Learners Permit (or Provisional Licence) must be valid for your use. It must be up to date and for the category of vehicle you are about to be tested in. First time holders of a Learner Permit must have it for a minimum of 6 months in order to do a driving test.
  • You must have Insurance cover. You must have an up to date valid Insurance disc displayed in the front windscreen.
  • The Vehicle you are about to drive must be taxed. There must be a valid and up to date Tax Disc displayed in the Front Windscreen.
  • If your car is 4 years old or more then it must have a valid NCT Disc. For Van’s you must have an up to date DOE which you need anyway to get a Van Taxed.
  • Your vehicle must have L Plates at the front and back. These are a red L on a white background. Do not cut the white part off otherwise the tester will refuse to bring you out.
