Paper Licence Changes Warning

Motorists are being warned to be aware of changes taking effect in just over two weeks time as the paper counterpart for the driving licence will no longer be issued by the DVLA.

The IAM fears many motorists are still confused or unaware of the implications of the paper counterpart no longer having any legal status from 8th June 2015.

The paper counterpart was introduced alongside the photocard driving licence in 1998 to include details that could not be included on the card itself, such as any endorsements and which category of vehicles people are entitled to drive. However, from next month, this information will be stored electronically and not be shown on any written documentation drivers will have.
