Risk of Expired Driving Licences

August 7, 2008

Fleet managers are being urged to check photocard driving licences as around 90,000 are due for renewal this year. Drivers must change the photograph on their licence every 10 years or they could be fined up to £1,000.

As the first photocard licences were issued in July 1998, thousands need to be updated. But many drivers are not aware that their licence is due for renewal.

A survey of nearly 2,000 drivers found that 45% of photocard licence holders do not know their licence’s expiry date.

Drivers should receive a reminder in the post two months before the renewal date, but this is reliant on people telling the DVLA when they change their address.

Failure to notify the DVLA of a new address can also result in a £1,000 fine.

By the end of next year, around 150,000 photocard licences will be due for renewal every month.

It costs £17.50 to renew a photocard licence after 10 years.
