1.8m in the UK have out of date Driving Licences

Most drivers believe that their new style licence is for life, but the licence actually expires after a set period and have to be renewed

Most drivers believe that their new style licence is for life, but the licence actually expires after a set period and have to be renewed. There are currently 1.8 million drivers with a driving licence out of date.

The new style photocard licences are not very clear showing the expiry date, the small print below the drivers name is a numbered series of dates and details. Number 4b features a date but the significance is explained only if the card is turned over where the key on the back states that 4b relates to ‘licence valid to’.

The first batch of ten year photo licences was issued in July 1998 so if you received your licence that year your licence will most certainly be out of date.

The DVLA say that drivers are allowed to continue driving if they have failed to renew before the expiry date but they could be charged with ‘failing to surrender their licence’ which is an offence carrying a £1000 fine. The Association of British Insurers and the Department of Transport said that insurance cover was not affected if drivers failed to update their photocard.
