DVLA Abolishes Paper Counterpart Driving Licence

As a result of the Government’s Red Tape Challenge consultation and the DVLA’s commitment to simplifying services, the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence will become invalid from June 8th 2015 and DVLA will no longer issue them for new or replacement licence applications.

Traditionally, the paper counterpart showed information that could not be fitted onto the photocard licence; for example penalty points.  However, there was no requirement to apply for a replacement to remove spent points.  In the future this information will be available by visiting www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence and entering your driving licence number, national insurance number and the post code where your licence is registered.
