Expiry of Photocard Driving Licence

5
Found 24th Jan 2011
Not sure if this is the right place but I'd like to submit a timely reminder to all users holding a Photocard Driving Licence that Section 4.b. states when your licence expires. This is very important because if you use a Photocard Licence after it has expired it will probably invalidate your insurance and you can be prosecuted for 'Failing to submit your licence' (Max £1000 fine & points). Check this out: If it has expired for over 2 years you may have to retake your driving test?

It will cost you about £17.50 to renew. (Check DVLA Website for current costs).

I am also responsible for a few drivers at work that drive company cars and I have to check their licence every year to make sure it is in date. If you run a company etc make sure you check ALL your driver's licences at least every year otherwise they may not be covered under your insurance.

Hope this helps someone.

The expire date still remains the same...

So you can in effect get a new one which is only valid for one day..
