    Default Exchanging Irish Licence for UK licence

    I want to exchange my Irish licence for a UK one. I have been in the UK a year now and I got busted for speeding last month. Problem is I will have to go to court unless I can get a UK licence soon.

    Now when I send off the Irish Licence with my passport as proof of identity is that it? Is that all they need? I have been told horror stories of the DVLA demanding secondary id and proof of address. Is that really the case?

    Cheers
    John

    Hello John

    If you are staying in the UK for more than 12 months (from date of first entry) you need to exchange your Irish licence for a UK licence. You can apply on form D1 which is obtainable at any post office.

    If you want or need to change your driving licence for a GB driving licence, you must complete the application form D1 that is available from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) form ordering service and Post Office branches.

    You will need to enclose original documentation confirming your identity and a passport style colour photograph. Send your completed application and the appropriate fee to DVLA, Swansea, SA99 1BT.

    There is more information here:

    And the fees required here:

    They've really tightened up on identity checks, not just for licenced but V5 (Vehicle Registration) documentation too, primarily to cut down on 'M. Mouse' registered keepers which makes a mockery of trying to take them to court for some infraction when they don't exist!
