Photocards issued from February 2014 will have a refreshed design and contain a host of improved security features such as a new security holograph, raised surface pattern and an Optical Variable Ink (OVI) which will all help maintain the security of the driving licence and protect against fraudulent copies.

The old driving licence format will remain valid so it is not necessary to update to the new style until your existing photocard driving licence expires.
