Firstly you will need to apply for the correct provisional entitlements to be added to your current licence, therefore you will need to fill out a D2 form, which can be filled out by yourself and a D4 form, which must be completed either by your GP or a medical centre. Our friendly teams in Ipswich and King's Lynn are always happy to offer advice and help, and we hold both D2 and D4 forms at our offices so why not call in and collect them.
Once the forms are completed, post both forms along with your current driving licence to the DVLA. Your licence should then be returned in approximately 1-3 weeks with the provisional entitlements added.
When you received your licence back you can then book your multiple choice theory test and hazard perception by calling Monday to Friday 0300 200 1122 between 8am - 4pm or any time online www.gov.uk/book-theory-test
Contact Hamilton's to arrange a time to come in and meet the team. Once you've decided you would like to use Hamilton's we will book your 1 hour assessment. Our friendly team will ensure your training and test requirements are tailored to your individual needs.
