Can i practise with a friend or relative?
* hold a valid, provisional driving licence for Great Britain or Northern Ireland
* make sure that any vehicle you drive is roadworthy and properly taxed and insured for you to drive.
If you want to practise your driving, the accompanying driver must be over the age of 21 and must have held (and still hold) a full licence for three years.
As a learner driver you must display 'L' plates
It is recommended that you have driving lessons from a DSA approved Driving instructor before you start any private practise,as It is important to learn safe driving practice from the beginning of your driving career because bad habits are hard to break.
I highly recommed private practice ,if you know someone that will go out with you between lessons.Only practise what you have learned from lessons though and remember the accompanying driver will not notice alot of the mistakes you make(sometimes they may be just "happy to get home alive!!"), so you must be disciplined so as to not allow bad habits to develop.No practise is better than Bad practise!!
Highway code rule 127:
You MUST exercise proper control of your vehicle at all times. You MUST NOT use a hand-held mobile phone, or similar device, when driving or when supervising a learner driver, except to call 999 or 112 in a genuine emergency when it is unsafe or impractical to stop.
