UK Driving Licence Photo specifications – Reload Internet


What Type of Photo is Required for a UK Driving Licence?

The photo you provide must have been taken in the past few months, be in colour, and the proper, passport-size for the ID that is being applied which includes the following;

  • Provisional Driver’s Licence
  • Renewing Your Driver’s Licence
  • Optional Renewal of Driver’s Licence
  • Exchanging Your Driver’s Licence from a Different Country

In addition, you will need to provide proof of your residency which is a requirement to get your new driving licence. However, it should be noted that an ID Photo is not required for certain types of changes to your driver’s licence.


When Photos Are Not Required for your UK Driving Licence Application

There are a couple of exceptions that do not require a new photo for your licence.

  • Changing Your Name and/or Address
  • Replacing Your Existing Licence

In either case, no new photo is needed because you are not making changes that require a new photo to be used. However, a more significant change may require you to provide a new ID photograph depending on the particular circumstances. You may need to call ahead to see if a new photo is required for the changes that you are going to make.


Digital tachograph driver smart card

We can cater for the strict requirements of a digital tachograph driver smart card as is stated here.


Certification of your Driving Licence Photo

You will need to provide up-to-date UK or EEA passport identity documents. If you do not have such documents, then a valid Biometric Residence permit or travel document that is UK in origin will be required. This means that you must get a person who is properly authorised to sign the back of the photograph before it can be used.

Be sure that you have everything in order before proceeding to getting your new driver’s licence. You may want to call ahead so to confirm that you have everything in order first before getting the licence. To have a proper photograph at the ready will help speed up the process.
