Driver licence changes

December 2014

New laws around driver licences from 1 December

  • Applying for a new licence will require some form of photographic ID – this is to reduce the risk of identity fraud

Those who obtain or renew their learner or restricted licence need to progress to the next licence stage within 5 years or face sitting another theory test to renew their licence again – this will encourage novice drivers and riders to progress from a learner to a full licence by gradually gaining the skills and experience needed to drive safely
