    Q576: I have (recently) passed my driving test and I have my pass certificate but have not sent off for my new licence, (I still have a provisional licence) can I drive on my own? I have insurance and the owners permission?

    Yes you can. You should exchange your provisional licence for a full licence as soon as possible although you do have two years after you have passed your test. Failure to obtain a full licence within that time will mean you have to re-sit your driving test (theory and practical).

    You can drive on your own but you cannot supervise a learner driver, see question on requirements for supervising a learner driver for further information .
