16 Jun 2015
From the 8th June 2015 you will no longer need to retain your paper counterpart licence or provide it to the Court or DVLA after a driving conviction. All of the information which had been contained on the counterpart will now be stored electronically by the DVLA.
Please see this extract from the gov.uk website:
“Since 8 June 2015, the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence isn’t valid and is no longer issued by DVLA. The counterpart was introduced to display driving licence details that could not be included on the photocard. These details include some vehicle categories you are entitled to drive and any endorsement/penalty points. View our infographic for information about the driving licence changes.
Please note, this does not affect photocard licences issued by DVA in Northern Ireland.”
