Photocard Driving Licence Application

Find all you need to know about applying for your photocard driving licence and provisional driving licence

Include a photo, the fee and a proof of ID.

Applying directly by post

Since 8 June 2015 the counterpart to the photocard driving licence is not valid and will no longer be issued. Please visit www.gov.uk/dvla/nomorecounterpartopens in new window for more information.

Pop in to our Galestreet Postoffice branch and pick up a UK driving licence application form (D1). Once you’ve filled it in, send your completed form to DVLA, Swansea, using the appropriate postcode shown on the form.

Make sure you include these items with your application:

  • A form of ID that features a passport-size photo – a current UK passport or proof that you’re entitled to a state retirement pension will be ideal
  • A passport-size photo
  • Your application fee

Please note, the DVLA reserves the right to see original identity documents.
