The biggest change is that the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence is no longer valid and will no longer be issued by the DVLA.
But from June 8, the Government’s Driver and Vehicle Driving Agency (DVLA) says all paper counterparts will be invalid and should then be ‘destroyed’.
From that date, information about penalty point endoresments will only be held on the DVLA’s electronic driver database, and will have to be checked online, by phone or by post.
However, motoring groups fear that the switch to a fully online system will cause confusion for millions of drivers seeking either to check their own driving licence – or have it checked by third parties such as car-hire firms.
The switch could also leave many exposed to sophisticated fraundsters.
I have a feeling they are going to make it tricky, I don't know why?
