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.
