Legal responsibilities for drivers in the UK
Once you have obtained the driving license as an immigrant outside EU and EEA, you need to register your vehicle with the DVLA, pay the taxes and solicit insurance for your car. If you have changed your domicile address or you got married, you need to change this personal information and obtain a new driving license in the UK. We remind that citizens who drive larger vehicles must obtain a different type of permit, according to the rules and regulations of the DVLA which can also collaborate with the authorities and search a person’s criminal record. For possible traffic control, a citizen needs to provide the officer with a valid driving license, insurance, and identity card.
Please feel free to contact our team of immigration solicitors in London for further questions about this matter or about how to obtain a UK residence card. Complete legal support can be offered by our London immigration lawyer.
