Written answers (Question to Transport)

When a licence is lost or stolen, the holder must apply for a replacement using the standard form for a licence application.  No medical certificate is necessary, as the licence in question will be for the same period as the lost or stolen licence, and the NDLS will already have received a medical certificate, if required, for that period, before issuing the original licence.

Information on this and other driver licensing matters is publicly available on the website of the National Driver Licensing Service (NDLS).
