Guide to Learning to Drive

It can be difficult to know where to start when you decide you want to learn to drive. There's just so much to think about and so many obstacles to overcome. But MoneySupermarket is here to help with our 6-step guide to learning to drive.

Before you even get the behind the wheel, you'll need to apply for a provisional driving licence, which costs £50. Then comes the hassle of finding the right driving instructor. Lessons generally cost between £22 and £25, but the cheapest instructor isn't always the best value for money.

What if you want to undertake private practice in a friend or parent's car to supplement your driving lessons? Did you know you'll only be able to do this if you are named driver on that person's car insurance policy? And car insurance for learner drivers doesn't come cheap. So take advantage of our tips to help you reduce the financial burden that this can cause.

You've got all of this to think about before you even consider your driving test. But we've got this covered as well, providing you with a breakdown of what to expect on the day of the exam itself...
