“Northern Ireland is an equal part of the United Kingdom – Put the Union Flag on our driving licenses.

Responsible department: Department for Transport

We believe that Northern Ireland is an equal part of the United Kingdom, and that it is just as British as England, Scotland or Wales.

We call on Claire Perry MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Transport, and the DVLA to reverse their decision to exclude Northern Irish driving licenses from displaying the Union Flag. We believe Northern Irish driving licenses should also display the Union Flag.

The DVLA themselves have called the Union Flag a “symbolic sign of national identity”, so we are extremely disappointed that they see fit to exclude Northern Irish drivers from this policy.

We understand that some people in Northern Ireland would like the Union Flag on their driving licenses, and have no objections to those people making specific requests to opt out of having the Union Flag on their driving license.”
