Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom (U.K)  have reached a mutual position on the exchange of driver’s licences between the two countries which will see the latter accepting class 2 and class 4 holders as bona-fide drivers on its roads.

This was revealed by the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructural Development which said the Central Vehicle Registry (CVR) and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) of U.K have agreed on a policy where the latter will only entertain the exchange of class 4 driver’s license for those competently tested for driving light motor vehicles and class 2 for those driving trucks.

“Holders of class 2 driver’s license intending to drive light motor vehicles must either come back to Zimbabwe and downgrade or obtain their class 4 license in the United Kingdom. Those intending to downgrade from class 2 to 4 are required to approach the Central Vehicle Registry (CVR) offices for assistance before visiting the Vehicle Inspectorate Department (VID).

“Holders of both class 2 and 4 obtained on different tests will not be affected. The CVR is encouraging those affected to bring their driver’s licence and be guided accordingly,” reads the statement.

The development comes after a lot of Zimbabwean driver’s License holders who travelled to U.K failed to use them to drive.
