If like me you have an old paper licence which is falling to pieces and don't want to pay nearly £20 to exchange it for the new photo style. Theres an easy way to get it for free. Just fill in the change of address part on your paper licence, with a friend or relatives address (make sure you ask them first) and post it off to DVLA. They will then send you a letter (to the address you gave) saying 'they can't issue you with a new licence because they need a passport photo.

So fill in the form they sent you using your current address, stick your photo on the plastic bit on the form (you must use BLACK ink when filling the form in or they will send it back to you). You will need to enclose your passport or get someone like your doctor to sign the back of the photo(read the notes on the form).

Pop it in the post and wait for you free upgrade!

My photocard was stolen recently, can i use this to get a new free one?!

If you have a photo one, don't you have to pay for a new one every 10 years, because your picture has to be changed?

I switched my paper provisional a couple of years ago to the new photocard type, sent the cheque for payment and they just sent the cheque back...

I don't think you'd have had to pay anyways all along.

They also swap it for free when you send off your licence to be endorsed with points. :x :giggle:

but you still have to pay for those points to come off, 3 years technically on your license but 4 years to get a new one
