2. If your details on your driving licence are not up to date, tell us what the changes are and return it to us so that we can issue a new driving licence. It is a legal requirement that you tell us immediately of any change to your permanent address and/or name. You could be fined up to £1000 if you do not notify us of these changes.

If you are a bus or lorry driver and have passed driver certificate of professional competence (CPC) initial test modules or completed periodic training since 10 September 2008 (for bus drivers) and 10 September 2009 (for lorry drivers) and you need these details included in our response please put an ✖ in the box in section 2 with your driver qualification card (DQC) number if known. This number can be found on the back of the DQC card in the bottom right-hand corner. The driver CPC information will be sent to the company separately from the printout of your driver record.
