Learning to drive in later life

By August 16, 2019 Driving tips No Comments

Learning to drive is a rite of passage for many young people but some people to wait until they’re a bit older to get behind the wheel, due to their own circumstances.

In Ireland, government guidelines state that you can apply for a provisional driving licence when you are 17 years old. For most people, this means that you can legally start learning to drive a car when you’re 17.

However, not everyone decides to learn to drive straight away and the age range is growing. The age range for taking the driving test is also growing, according to the RSA. This may be due to the fact that many learner permit holders have never taken the driving test – some who have been learner drivers since 1984.

But age is not a barrier to learning to drive successfully. A good instructor and a good attitude towards driving, with plenty of practice will see most people through the test and on to a lifetime of safe and happy driving.
