driving licence

an official document or certificate authorizing a person to drive a motor vehicle. In the UK it is an offence to drive without a valid licence. The licence may be lost as a penalty for a motoring offence or for the cumulative effect of numerous minor offences by virtue of TOTTING-UP of penalty points on the licence. Convictions recorded on the licence are known as endorsements. There are plans to use removal of a driving licence as a penalty for non-related matters, in particular, failure to pay child support.
