Broken Driving Licence

Hi All,

I've just started a pupil who has a broken driving licence (washing machine apparently!).  He has stuck it together with cellotape but I am concerned that it may not pass muster at either theory or practical test.  Normally I would suggest replacing it but he is in a bit of a rush to pass asap and we don't want to delay that waiting for a replacement licence.  So, two questions.  If he applies for a replacement due to the damage, is his old one still valid until the new one arrives?  Is a broken licence likely to cause a problem at either theory or practical?

Thanks in advance

As long as it is readable they should accept it for tests.

If they apply for a replacement then the old one is still valid but should be destroyed when the new one arrives.
