Updating a driving licence
after the Motor Car Act 1903 received royal assent in the United Kingdom.
Every car owner had to register their vehicle with their local government authority and be able to prove registration of their vehicle on request. The licence gave its holder 'freedom of the road' with a maximum 20 mph (32 km/h) speed limit.
In some jurisdictions, a license is issued after the recipient has passed a driving test, while in others, a person acquires a license before beginning to drive.A driver may be required by a constable or vehicle examiner to produce their licence, but may provide it in a specified police station within seven days; In Denmark, Finland, Norway, Spain and Sweden, the driver's license number is the same as the citizen's ID number.Banks and authorities use the same number for customer databases, making the licence fully useful for identification purposes.In Japan, South Korea, and Singapore driving license cards are widely used as identification.New Drivers (First license in Japan) Valid for 2 to 3 years.
