Whats The Legal Age In The Uk To Drive A Car And What Are The Steps In Getting Your License?

Hi, i recently turned 16 and I have some money stashed away and was considering looking into getting a car, but i’m not sure what the legal age for teens to drive in the UK is.
I also am not sure what the steps are for when you are doing your licence i mean what do you do first?
could someone just inform me on the legal age to drive in the UK and the steps needed to complete your driving license.

    Legally, you can drive a car in the UK from the age of 17 (or 16 if you receive certain disability benefits). You can apply for your provisional license 3 months before your 17th birthday. With a provisional license, you must be supervised while driving by a driving instructor or over 21 who has held a full license for at least 3 years. Before you can take a practical driving test, you MUST pass a theory test. Once you have passed both a theory test and a practical test, you can exchange your provisional license for a full license, which entitles you to drive under all circumstances.

    You can apply up to 3 months before you can start driving. You can normally start driving on your 17th birthday if you want to drive a car and your 16th birthday if you want to drive a motorcycle or moped.
    You have to pass your theory test before you can take the practical test. When you reach 17, take some proper driving lessons.
