In the laudable programme to reduce Government excess spending, from Monday June 8, the paper part of the UK driving licence – which shows details of restrictions and penalties – will be scrapped.
This really shouldn’t be problem but it is anticipated that this might be a nuisance for people who want to hire holiday cars outside of the UK.
I really can’t remember the last time that I was aked to produce my paper copy of the licence. But, let me predict that all of a sudden car hire firms will discover that this is a requirement of hire and I bet there will be a charge involved.
Never trust a car hire company!
