Check your Driving Licence

Posted on July 15th, 2013 by David Williams MBE

Ensure your driving licence is up to date by checking the following 3 important factors:

1) If you have changed your name, make sure this has been changed on your driving licence. Failure to do this could result in a £1000 fine. Remember this is FREE to change so don’t delay it.

2) The same applies if you have changed your address. This is once again FREE to amend.

3) The DVLA will send out a reminder every 10 years to your address to inform you that you need to update your photograph on your licence, therefore it is very important you have shared your correct address. Check to see when your photograph will be required to be renewed by checking the date marked 4b on the front of your driving Licence.
