Abolition of Paper License

The DVLA has announced that it intends to abolish the paper counterpart driving license in 2015.

In another move to further digitise motoring records, the DVLA will remove the necessity for a paper license, however drivers will have to keep their current photo card license.

Any driver that has an old style paper driving license issues before the arrival of the photo card license in 1998 will not be affected.

Following the invalidation of the paper license, holders can destroy the license if they so wish.

The changes have been announced after a review last October by the Department for Transport into how the DVLA could further improve it’s quality and service whilst also saving money for the taxpayer.
