Changing Your Provisional Driving Licence For A Full Driving Licence

When you pass your driving test, you are legally allowed to drive as a full licence holder immediately, the examiner will give you a pass certificate, which acts as your evidence of entitlement to drive until you exchange your provisional driving licence for a full driving licence.

When you pass your driving test, providing your name and address are the same as shown on your provisional driving licence, the examiner can offer you the option of having your new full driving licence being sent to you automatically.

The examiner will take your provisional licence from you, and arrange for a new full driving licence to be sent to you.

You cannot use the option of having your full driving licence being issued automatically if either your name or address is different from that shown on your provisional driving licence, you also might choose not to use the automatic service if for example you need to retain your provisional driving licence temporarily to use as a form of Identification.

If you do not use the automatic service to exchange your provisional driving licence for a full driving licence, you will need to apply for your driving licence using form D1, which is available from post offices.

If you do not apply for your full driving licence within two years of passing your driving test, a full driving licence will not be issued, and you would need to pass both the theory and practical driving tests again.

Driving Licence Renewal

A driving licence usually has to be renewed every 10 years, the renewal date is shown as item 4b, there are some circumstances that result in shorter renewal periods.

To renew a driving licence use the GOV.UK website

Updating Your Details On Your Driving Licence

It is a legal requirement that your personal details are kept up to date on your driving licence.

Any change of name or address must be notified to DVLA, failing to update your driving licence could result in a fine of up to £1000.

To update a driving licence use the GOV.UK website

Law and Documentation A Guide For Drivers

There are guides for drivers on various subjects regarding law and documentation relating to owning and using a car and to stay legal; whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the information is accurate and up to date, they are not intended to be legal guides.
