Remember to bring with you:
- A valid signed UK (or Northern Ireland) photocard licence. Both the photocard and paper counterpart must be presented, or
- An old style valid signed UK (or Northern Ireland) paper driving licence and a valid passport.

I don't have any paper counterpart... I only have my provisional driving license. What is the difference between the old style and, presumably, new style aforementioned?

Also it says my 'car test has been booked'. This is my theory not practical yes?

Thanks

I'm assuming "car test" refers to it being a car theory test rather than a theory test for another vehicle like bike or a HGV.

When you got your provisional, you get the photocard with details and a paper part, let me see if I can go find mine to confirm what's written on it, however both parts are needed for the license to be valid.

You need your paper counterpart. You'll have to buy a new one from their website otherwise they won't let you take the test
It's £19 for a new one. You can find it here: http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring...nce/DG_4022085

I'm pretty sure 'car test' is right if you booked the theory.

Good luck

The old style is JUST a paper copy, I think it was pink. But they changed it so that now, for your provisional, you must have the GREEN photocard license, which I presume is the bit you've got, and the paper part. I think the paper bit's green too, and it says at the top Counterpart Driving License, or something around those lines if I remember correctly . And you definitely would have got sent this with your photocard license, so you'll need to find it or request a new one!

And yes that'll be your theory, the only reason it says car is because you can sit theory tests for other vehicles and such

The paper counterpart is just a sheet that you get with your provisional, it looks like this:

Good stuff, saved yourself £19! I also lost mine before my theory test, ransacked my room and found it in the end :p:

Thanks for the rep and good luck for your test
