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 owner's 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 in related information for further information.
