    Photo Driving Licences

    I have just noticed that my photo driving licence has an expiry date. Just wanted to make people aware that any licences that were issued in 1998 and are photo need to be re-newed.
    Many motorists believe that their photocard - like the old style green paper licences - are valid right up until they turn 70. In actual fact, they expire after a relatively short ten year period. The reason this has come to light recently is because the photocards were first issued in 1998, and so 2008 saw the first ten year expiry dates come up and catch lots of drivers out. Since July of 2008, around 170,000 UK licences have expired and by the end of January 2009, more than a quarter of those motorists who are due to renew their licences with the DVLA, hadnt done so.
