New style photocard driving licence
20 Feb 2014
The DVLA has introduced a new style photocard driving licence.
Holders of valid driving licences will not need to replace their current driving licence. The old driving licence format is still valid and will be updated gradually as they are renewed and replaced.
The new card has a refreshed design and incorporates many improved security features including a new security holograph, raised surface pattern and an Optical Variable Ink (OVI) which will continue to keep the driving licence secure and help in the fight against fraud.
If you are an organisation which regularly checks photocard driving licences you’ll need to be aware of the changes to the cards design.
