When you get your licence

Your licence will last indefinitely unless:

  • it is revoked
  • it is suspended
  • you choose to surrender it
  • it lapses, for example due to bankruptcy
  • it is forfeit, for example if a court orders it when you are convicted of a relevant offence.

However, you will need to maintain your personal licence every 5 years.

If you need a copy

You will not receive a physical copy of your licence from us but you can download a copy through our manage and maintain your personal licence service (opens in new tab).

You need to be able to produce your licence on demand within a specified period of time if a constable or enforcement officer asks to see it.
