Jump to: navigation, search

Procedure[edit]

You hold a valid Northern Ireland driver’s license. It is made up of two parts: a plastic photo card and a paper part which is known as the paper counterpart. If any part has been lost, stolen or destroyed, you must apply for a replacement license. If your license has either expired or is within two months of expiring you cannot apply to replace your driver’s license, you must apply to renew your license. If your driver’s license is due to expire in the next 12 months you can consider applying to renew it instead of replacing it. You can apply for a replacement license by Mail or Online.
