Great template, here's a little more substance for making the fields valid:
Your personal details (1,2 and 3)
Fields 1, 2 and 3 of your photocard licence record your surname, first names, date and place of birth.
Date of licence issue, photo expiry, issuing authority (4)
The date shown in 4a is the date the photo is valid from. 4b shows either the date the photo expires (driving entitlement is valid until 70th Birthday) or the date entitlement expires (medically restricted and over 70 licences). The authority that issued the licence is shown in 4c ie DVLA.
Driver number (5)
A B C D E
MORGA 657054 SM 9IJ **
A - First five characters of surname. If the surname is less than five characters the remaining spaces will be made up using the figure 9. (eg MAN99)
B - The first and last numbers are the year of birth. The second and third numbers are the month of birth. If you're a woman, '5' is added to the second number and the total used as the second digit eg if you're born in October the second and third numbers would be 60. The fourth and fifth digits show the day of your birth.
C - The first two initials of your forenames. If you have only one initial then the second will be a '9'.
D - Computer check digits.
E - Licence issue number.
Holder's photograph (6)
The new photocard licence has a black and white photo. This is because the laser technology used to burn the image onto the card producing a black and white photo is more secure. A colour photo will still need to be provided with your application to be stored on your driver record.
Holder's signature (7)
This is digitally reproduced and burned into the photocard from the signature you provided on the application form.
Holder's address (8)
This shows the driver's permanent address in Great Britain.
Entitlement categories (9)
The letters in capitals show the categories of entitlement covered by the European Community Directive. National categories are shown in smaller letters.
Holographic feature (10)
This feature is similar to a hologram but more clear as it has definite lines and brilliant colours. It contains a steering wheel that appears to turn as you tilt the card in different directions.
Changing images (11a and 11b)
a. This security feature is an image that changes both shape and colour depending on how you tilt the licence. On full (pink) licences it's a blue road sign changing to a black triangle, on a provisional (green) it's a red road sign changing to a black triangle.
b. This security feature is personalised according to the data on the card. It contains the last five characters of the driver number changing to the month and year of the photo expiry which appear and disappear depending on how you tilt the licence.
Back of licence
Unique identifier (12)
Cards are to be pre numbered by the card manufacturer. This number is laser engraved onto the card prior to delivery to DVLA and is unique on every card.
Not used (13 and 14)
These illustrations are representations of types of vehicles in those categories shown.
Category validity periods (16)
These are the dates when entitlement to drive each category begins and ends.
Information codes (17)
The code numbers printed in this area indicate what (if any) restrictions the entitlement is subject to.
Steering wheel security feature (18)
This is a security feature in the shape of a steering wheel. The colour of the wheel changes from green to gold depending on how you tilt the licence.
Other security features
The driving licence also has tactile (raised) surfaces, tactile engraved text, changing colours as well as complex background designs.
NOTE: ITS CALLED A DRIVING LICENCE NOT DRIVERS LICENSE.
BTW -- Error on the templates, the birthdays are backwards kindof. EU goes DD/MM/YYYY, the template is in MM/DD/YYYY format instead for dates. Just make em right when editing! Other than that the quality of this template is exceptional, thank you Replacing mine with this one now.
