Licence talks

THE Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has launched a consultation into whether the counterpart to the photocard driving licence should be abolished.

The counterpart is a paper document issued with photocard driving licences that contains information including convictions. It should be carried by drivers alongside the photocard.

The consultation will last three months and will include views from trade associations, representative groups and road safety officers.

Visit www.dvla.gov.uk to view the consultation paper – 'The Future of the Counterpart to the Photocard Driving Licence.'
