  1. Goodbye forever?? Farewell to paper driving licences…

    Goodbye forever?? Farewell to paper driving licences…


    I must say, I felt somewhat emotional as I glanced down at the tea-stained, cat-chewed and unevenly folded paper part of my driving licence after reading that from the 8th June it won’t be required.


    The DVLA will no longer be issuing the paper part to the driving licence that has always accompanied your photo card. From the 8th June 2015 you are advised to destroy your old paper licence, however if you still have the original, pre-1998 paper licence without the photo card this will still be valid.


    You can check your licence for any endorsements online – go to the DVLA website for this and other information (


    I don’t think many people will miss them, although I will be keeping mine – I think it could become a collector’s item!

I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you personally for the wonderful service that I have received from you and your company. I have leased six cars over the years and have to say the way you dealt with my car was wondeful. Many thanks for all your efforts, I will vertainly be recommending your company in the future.

Dave, Luton Town
