The paper part of the driving licence has now ceased to exist. Many third parties still require sight of this (e.g. car hire, insurance broker), so as it no longer exists, what do you do?
You now need to log-on to www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence and follow the on-screen instructions. This will allow you to share the information with a third party – it gives them a code which lasts for 21 days. However – you will need to log on and generate the code in the 1st place. You’ll need your driving licence number, national insurance number and home postcode.
