Unsure what restriction codes are on a licence?
Aswell as category codes, you may have restriction codes showing on your driving licence. These restriction codes can show on your licence categories and they could vary depending on if you have to wear glasses whilst you're behind the wheel, the weight of the vehicle itself and you also might be limited to how many seats the vehicle can have.
The codes below have been provided for your information by LICENCECHECK from the DVLA.
Check them out - Are all your drivers allowed to drive the vehicle that you have issued? These are the descriptions of information codes which appear on UK driving licences.
