    Default Removing points from licence - lose the paper?

    Had 3 points for speeding four years ago and apparently one can get the points removed now.
    I have a paper licence and will not trade it for the stupid photo one.
    Any way to remove the points while still keeping the paper?

    ^ It reads like they con you into buying the new version on there if you want the clean licence, so thinking the answer is "No"
    Just checking if anyone' found out for themselves.

    Sure old ones are non existing any more you have to have a photo one ?

    All so depends on when your paper one expires,your license will be valid until it expires but if you send it to DVLA i'm sure they only send out new photo one's now

    old paper licence's r no longer sent out by dvla, its photo card or nothing now, its free to change over from paper to photo card, plus u have to send 2 photo's off with the old paper licence, for your new photo card. my friend had his old paper licence took off him by the police, who said it was out of date, (it didn't run out till 2045) he had to get a photo card one,

    Yup you'll have to have the new ones.

    I've just my licence back after sending it off as it was 10 years old plus got all my old points removed at the same time.

    And there's a nice little sting in the tail. The old paper ones used to be valid until you were 70 but with the photo ones you need to get the photo renewed every so often (every 10 years I think). Another nice wee earner for Gordon.
