Check Your Driving Licence and Avoid A £1000 Fine!

Did you know that there is £1000 fine if you have an out-of-date driving licence? Over two million people have an invalid licence and risk facing a hefty fine.

 

Check the photocard driving licence expiry date

 

Photocard licences replaced paper licences in 1998, and must be renewed every 10 years. The DVLA says a whopping 2.3 million photocards are out of date.

 

Driving licence photos must be replaced every 10 years!

 

It’s easy to forget, but a quick check now could save you a fine of up to £1,000 if your photocard’s expired. It’s an annoying £14 to renew (£17 if you renew by post), but that’s a far better option.

 

There are a few dates printed on the photocard, but the one you need’s the photo expiry date printed on section 4b on the front of the card.
