Driving licences

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has announced proposals to scrap the paper counterpart to the UK driving licence. This is to take effect from January 2015.

DVLA is consulting various stakeholders about the implications that this will have for employers and others who need to check that a licence remains valid and to check for penalty points. An on-line procedure via a system called View Driver Record (VDR) will be made available for individual record checks, and this will be a chargeable service.
