Your driving licence has a number of secret codes on the back of it which could see you land a hefty fine and penalty points if you ignore them.

Many motorists may never have taken the time to read the information on there back of their driving licence.

This is for good reason too as the information on the back of the licence is merely a collection of numbers which you may not have any comprehension of their meaning.

However, these secret codes could land you with a hefty fine if you ignore them.

Under section 12 on the driving licence are a number of ‘information codes.’

These ‘information codes’ correspond to any rules and regulations which prohibit what and how you can drive certain vehicles.

Information codes can convey details such as any impairments the driver has such as physical ailments that could affect driving, such as a hearing condition, to whether they are an organ donor or not.

Of all the codes found on the driving licence the most common is ’01’ which relates to eyesight.

Any motorist that has a ’01’ code on the rear of their driving licence must wear glasses or contact lenses if they have informed the DVLA they need them while on the roads.
