Check your driving licence information

From 8 June 2015, the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence was replaced by an online service. 

The paper counterpart includes information on a driver's penalty points along with details of what vehicles they can drive.  Drivers still need to keep their actual driving licence, whether it is a plastic photocard licence or an old style paper licence which was issued before 1998. 

It's very easy to view and share your driving record.  Just go to GOV.UK and search for 'view driving licence'.  You can view your information electronically and MUST generate a check code which will then to be shared with your driving instructor.
