Road to Success

Stage 1 Applying for your Provisional Licence.

The D2 form is the licence application form you complete to get the provisional entitlement to drive the vehicle of your choice as a learner and the D4 is the medical application form that must accompany the D2 form when you send it to the DVLA. Both forms can be obtained from the Post Office, however you can download from the Government Website the D4 form but not the D2.

The D4 medical form you take to the doctor examining you. They will complete the form stating whether or not you are fit and well to drive an LGV/PCV.

We know of some Medical Centres that maybe cheaper than your own Doctors, please scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Once these forms are complete, take a copy of your Driving Licence back and front and post the original card licence with the D2/D4 to the DVLA Swansea SA99 1BR, there is no cost attached to this process except for the Medical. PLEASE SEE BELOW DETAILS OF MEDICAL CENTRES
