Hi hopefully someone can help with this
We have a number of staff that drive our vehicles which are driving in the uk on Polish driving licences. I check all the licences every 6 months. I now check the english driving licences on line with the DVLA. However, how can I check that the polish driving licences are still valid? they don't have a paper section so I have no way of knowing if they are valid. I have spoken to the DVLA and they couldn't help me and our insurance company are looking in to it for me. I can't find anything on the internet that points to a Polish version of the DVLA.
Thanks in advance
There's no way, as there is no paper counterpart at all. If you want to get information on penalty points, this can only be obtained from the police in Poland.
In short, if they hold the physical licence, then it's valid. You won't have any problems as long as they physically hold the licence in question. One thing to be aware of is that many Polish people have so called "bezterminowo" licences - which means they don't expire.
