Driving Lessons In North Dublin- Applying For Your Learner Permit
When you decide you want to learn how to drive, it is not as easy as jumping behind the wheel of a car. There are steps involved that you must take in order to get your driving license. The first step in applying for your license is picking up a copy of The Official Driver Theory Test Questions and Answers book or app. After taking time to study the material, you are now ready to book The Theory Test. You can book the test by calling 1980 606 106 or online www.theorytest.ie When booking your test, have your credit card details and your PPS number. When you are booking you will be asked what category license you wish to hold. A car licence is a B License.
Once you pass The Theory Test, you will receive a pass certificate. Keep this pass certificate safe as you will need it to apply for your Learners Permit. To apply for your Learner Permit, go to www.ndls.ie
When you book an appointment with the NDLS, you will need a lot of different documents.
- Fully completed application form for a learner permit D201
- Original driver theory test pass certificate (dated within two years)
- Photographic I.D.
- Proof of your personal public services number (PPSN)
- Evidence of address dated within the last six months is required if your current address is not recorded on your permit and it differs from that provided to the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP) if and when you applied for a PSC
- Evidence of residency entitlement, (if you hold a public services card and your place of birth or nationality are within the European Union/European Economic Area, it is adequate to present the PSC)
- Fully completed NDLS eyesight report form, dated within three months
- Fully completed NDLS medical report form, dated within three months, if required in your case
- Application fee of €35.00
Having all the paperwork in order is essential in applying for your Learner Permit. It can be frustrating at times trying to get it all organized but the rewards are worth it in the end. You need to hold your Learner Permit for 6 months before you can apply for your Full Licence.
Once you have your Learner Permit you are allowed to learn how to drive. Chose an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) from your local area. It is always best to choose local instructors as they will know the roads and the test centre where you will be doing your test. Study the Rules Of The Road Ebook. This book is a step by step guide in learning how to drive and is a great tool for learner drivers.
Choose a sponsor who you think is a safe driver and work with them and help each other along the way. Be patient and document your progress and learning will become fun.
