I passed my test over 2 years ago so I have forgotten what the deal with the counterpart license is. Do you get a new one when you get your full license card or do you stick with the provisional one? Only asking because I'm doing some work experience for Autocar soon and they want both parts of my license... thanks!
You get a new complete licence (i.e. both parts) when you pass your test, IIRC. The counterpart and photocard both give details of the types of vehicle you're licensed to drive, so both need updating after a test pass.
My friend passed her test fairly recently, and her drivers license has some kind of chip (?) in it with the info on and because of that she doesn't have a paper part.
I don't know how recently that was brought in though so it might not apply to you.

Yeah my friend's license looks different to other licenses that I've seen of our friends who passed earlier on. It looks prettier Although I don't think she really knows what the difference is.
I know they had changed and added things like black and white photo, but they still come with counterparts.
