Acquire extra driving licence categories

The ‘groups’ or ‘categories’ on your full driving licence may have changed if the licence was issued before 2013.

Driving licence categories changed in January 2013 and also several times before that. Before June 1990, the types of vehicles you could drive were known as ‘groups’. These are now known as ‘categories’.

If your full driving licence was issued before January 2013, you can find the equivalent new category and check what types of vehicles you can drive.

Driving licence categories are different in Northern Ireland.

Licences issued between 1976 and 1986
