What do the numbers and letters in my licence number mean? Here is a guide to the UK driving licence format.

How can I work out my licence number?
Although there are some digits from your driving licence number that you can work out, unfortunately it's not possible to work out your exact licence number from your name and date of birth. The final two digits in your licence number are random.

Since June 2015 it has not bee necessary to keep or produce he papercccccccnterpart of your driving lienc. you do not need to proeuc the paper partof your driving licence for your driving test. The photocard is now all you need. In the UK it is not necessary to carry your driving licence with you while you are driving. However if you are stopped by the police and don't have it you will be required to produce your driving licence at a police station within 7 days.
