lplateWhen you’re learning, you’ll need to put ‘L’ or ‘P’ plates in London on the front and back of your car – somewhere they can be seen easily. And you’re only allowed to drive with someone who’s passed their test, is over 21 and has been driving for three years or more.

Your ‘L’ plates also have to meet legal specification – so buy them rather trying to knock some up yourself. Whenever the car is driven by someone who's passed, the plates need to come off or be covered up.
