As per the DVLA guidelines, you are required by law to be supervised as a provisional driver. In order to get temporary learner driver insurance, your supervisor (anyone you practise your driving with without paying them) will need to meet the following requirements:
- be over 25
- be qualified to drive the type of vehicle you want to learn in, for example, they must have a manual car licence if they’re supervising you in a manual car
- have had their full driving licence for 3 years (from the UK, the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein)
- been a UK resident for a minimum of 2 years
- does not have a DR coded motoring conviction endorsed on their driving licence within the past 5 years
You can be fined up to £1,000 and get up to 6 penalty points on your provisional licence if you drive without the right supervision.
You can drive with as many passengers as the vehicle can legally hold.
