Apply for a New Combined Driver's Licence

Applicants should follow the order recommended in the application process below to avoid having to repeat any steps, and paying unnecessary fees.

It is also advised that applicants begin studying for their knowledge test as soon as possible to ensure they are ready and confident enough to pass.

The knowledge test consists of three papers, one of which tests the geographical knowledge of the Borough of Charnwood. For more information, advisory notes and best practise please see schedule 5 of the Policy (Page 78-82) Drivers Knowledge Test (Extract From Schedule 5 of the Policy) (Word Document, 0.1 Mb)

More information on each step of your applicant can be found in the ‘recommended driver process’ document included in your application pack.
