Review exchange of designated country driving licences for 5+ year residents
The Government should abolish the requirement for residents to exchange a driving licence within 5 years or adjust the rule so it counts from the moment a particular country is designated, to give equal rights to all UK residents who might want to exchange a driving licence.
Currently, drivers from designated countries can only exchange them up to 5 years after becoming residents in the UK. Unfortunately, many UK residents with valid non-UK driving licences have been trapped and discriminated against due to the fact that they didn't have an opportunity to exchange their licence before their country has become a designated, and are still unable to do it after it has become designated because they have been the residents for over five years.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
