Abolishment of paper counterpart driving licences: what it means for employers and employees

Paper counterparts of photocard driving licences cease to be valid from 8th June 2015. This has implications for those who drive for work and those renting cars. 

From this date, information on any applied endorsements/penalty points and information in respect of some vehicle categories a driver is permitted to drive will only be available digitally. (Note: This does not apply to photocard licences issued by the DVA in Northern Ireland and paper driving licences issued before the photocard was introduced in 1998.)
Employees that are asked to provide evidence of their driving record to an employer will be able to access a new and free online service from the DVLA. The video below explains in more detail how this works.

More information on the changes is available at www.gov.uk/dvla/nomorecounterpart
