Lost Or Stolen Driving Licence
Whether your driving licence is lost or stolen, the missing driving licence must be reported to the DVLA immediately. An online report can either be completed online at or phone 0870 240 0009. Alternatively, you can obtain and complete a D1 form from your local post office.
If stolen, the driving licence must be reported to the police immediately.
Once the lost licence has been reported, a replacement will be sent out. However, should the lost licence subsequently be found it must be returned to the DVLA as soon as possible along with an explanatory cover letter.
