Is it alright to write:
I am a holder of a drivers licence, category B vehicle AND My interests are drums and guitar playing . thanks

While the first sentence is ok, it's kind of awkward. I'd rephrase it to " I hold a category B vehicle drivers license" or at the very least "I am a holder of a category B vehicle drivers license."

The second sentence is fine the way it's written.
Thank you for your clarifications!

Shouldn't it be driver's licence?

I was thinking of asking that but knowing that it's a very common mistake by native speakers, I didn't bother.

But I wonder, would it be more natural to say "My interests are playing drums and guitar"?

It's interesting because it says 'Learner Driver Licence' on my licence. I found this on Wikipedia.com upon a Google search.

    How strange. It says Operator License on mine. I have to say I didn't expect that. Wonder what my old license from another state said.

    New2grammer, is yours a normal car licence? Or is it for a yacht?

    I wish...ummm... I don't think you need a license to operate a yatch though. I know there are safety courses for new sailors but don't think they are issued licenses. That sounds dangerous. I think I'm wrong. Anyone knows Emotion: smile Sorry for deviating.
