    Default Paper Driving Licence..

    Hi all,been told by my company that they need to see my driving licence,"nothing unusual about that" i hear you say,but seeing as i passed my driving test way back in 1977 a paper one is all i possess,and i believe that this is still an elegible and legal document unless someone knows otherwise,the thing is my company are saying that the paper one is no good to them and they need to see a new photo one,which incidently,I HAVE TO PAY FOR...?WHERE DO I STAND ON THIS,i am adament that the paper one is /should be ok??anyone.Thanks.

    The paper licence is current and correct, until either it expires or you need to send it to DVLA for replacement, endorsements, etc
    Advise your employer to contact the DVLA for verification, don't upset the elves

    if your job requires u to have the photo card licence then they should pay for it.

    I have recently had to show my dosc at the cop shop, soits good enough for them so your company should accept it too. I also have to submit my licence to my works every 6 months, they accept it too.
    As suggested if they want you to have a phot licence(gawd knows why) they should stump up the fee.

    your paper licence is a bona fide legal document issued by the dvla

    everyone else would accept it - so why shouldnt your company

    Only free of charge for address changes.

    There are ways of getting it for free, I am sure you can guess how.
