Northern Ireland is an equal part of the United Kingdom – Put the Union Flag on our driving licences.
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 licences from displaying the Union Flag. We believe Northern Irish driving licences 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 licences, and have no objections to those people making specific requests to opt out of having the Union Flag on their driving licence.
So, if you agree with us, feel free to visit this link to the E Petition through Direct Gov
And sign the petition.
