Important changes regarding driving licences
From 19 January 2013, any new licences issued by DVLA for Category D1 & C1 will be valid for a 5 year period (new drivers). (Existing drivers (pre 19/01/13) will not be affected, providing you do not come into contact with the DVLA) However, this change to licensing will affect you when you do come into contact with the DVLA, and will trigger the issue of the new style EU3D style licence and the 5 year validly period for D1 / C1.

Implications for employees and their managers
As a reminder to managers of staff who are required to drive on the business of the County Council, you are required to ensure that those employees are legally entitled to drive. This will therefore include checking that the employee’s driving licence has not expired. HTM will not hold any responsibility for checking licences.

More information with regard this matter can be found on the DVLA website.
