Lost, stolen or malfunctioning driver cards

Where it is impossible to use a driver card (e.g. where it has been lost, stolen or damaged or is malfunctioning) a driver may drive without the card for a maximum of 15 calendar days (or longer if this is necessary for the vehicle to be returned to its premises) provided that he produces two printouts

– one at the start of the journey and another at the end. Both printouts must be marked with:

 - the driver’s name or driver card or licence number, so the driver can be identified;

 - any manual entries needed to show periods of other work, availability, and rest or break; and

 - the driver’s signature.

The driver must report the problem to DVLA and apply for a new card within seven calendar days
