Driving licence changes

Leaasepoint news


From 8th June 2015 the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence will no longer be issued by the DVLA (this does not affect Northern Ireland / DVA).
What you need to do:
If you have an existing paper counterpart along with a photo card driving licence, this will no longer hold legal status. After 8th June 2015 the paper counterpart should be destroyed but the photocard should be kept.
If you have a paper driving licence only (issued prior to the photo card driving licence) this will remain valid and should not be destroyed.
The licence that a driver will hold will no longer provide an accurate account of any driving endorsements as the information will be held on the DVLA’s driver record.
