You may have seen recent media coverage advising that the DVLA is to abolish the paper counterpart of your photocard driving licence from 8 June 2015. This has been in the pipeline for some time, however is now being reported in the media that travellers may experience difficulties when hiring a car overseas.
After 8 June 2015 the DVLA has advised that if you are hiring a vehicle and you are asked to provide evidence of your driving record you will be able to do by accessin g the Share Driving Licence service via the DVLA online for free.
This service is currently in development but the DVLA has advised it will be available before the counterpart is abolished. The service can be used by both paper (original old style paper licence) and photocard driving licence holders and will also allow you to download a summary of your licence record which can be printed or shared.
Alternatively you can call DVLA and give permission for your driving record to be checked verbally by a nominated person/organisation for example hire car companies.
