DVLA paper license counterpart replacement

I have lost the paper counterpart to my driving license which I now need. Thing is the website says to get a replacement you need a valid passport? Mine is out of date.

I still have my photo license though. Is this ok for I.D for the replacement?

You can also use a birth certificate, from the DVLA site:

UK birth and adoption certificates

You can use a UK birth and adoption certificate, but you must be send it with 1 of the following:

National Insurance card or a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions showing your National Insurance number
photocopy of the front page of a benefits book or an original benefits claim letter
P45, P60 or pay slip
marriage certificate or divorce papers (decree nisi or absolute)
college or university union card, school record or PASS CitizenCard

I'd of thought if the website says you need passport then you need passport

Get a passport. All you need to get one is the paper counterpart of your driving licence.

i thought they wouldve needed the passport as its photo i.d if you had lost or damaged the photo driving license. Ive only lost the paper counterpart so wondered if I could use my photo driving license which is still valid to get a full replacement

Get a paperpart passport by using your driving counter licence. They all have to be lost or out of date though of course

My husband recently lost his green paper part, and he didnt need a passport or birth certificate, or any form of ID. We rung the DVLA and over the phone she ordered the new one, (they have to issue you a new card as well) and we paid the £20 over the phone. It arrived a few days later and we then had to send back the old card for them to destroy. :)
