At what age can I start learning to drive?
You can drive off road or on a road that the public does not have access to at any age. You may not drive a car on a public road until your 17th birthday.
Can I start driving lessons before I'm 17?
Only if your instructor is able to offer off road tuition. Those driving schools that offer this facility will do so from age 16.
Do I have to take a driving test when I'm 70?
No. Your licence lasts until your 70th birthday. After that you can apply to renew your licence and each renewal lasts 3 years. There is however no test.
