No they didnt and there is no way I would have ignored it if they did, I dont take chances when it comes to driving and keeping it all legal. I wouldnt have had a clue if I hadnt been on that website looking for something else.

Re: Expired photocard licence?

"1.7 million photocards are now out of date "

should't they be running a national add to remind people then, or are they wanting all the money they can raise in fines

Yes be careful of that - mine ran out too - and I didn't find out until I went to a rental place and they wouldn't give me a car

Re: Expired photocard licence?

Thats just when your licence is Valid to not your photocard. This needs renewing to keep the picture up to date I think, mine expires in 2018.

In these specific circumstances thats not as serious as it sounds. If caught, the offence would be "driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence where you could be covered". Which carries a small fine, no points and does not invalidate your insurance.

Important to distinguish this from the other sort of driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence which covers people who drive on a provisional with no L plates or supervising driver.
Those cases do carry points and may invalidate your insurance depending on the wording of your policy.

Re: Expired photocard licence?

As I don't have the photocard I know not what I'm on about but surely the photocard is simply a driver's identity card? Is the paper licence not valid without the card alongside it? After all, the older paper licence is valid for donkeys years.

And I suppose we are charged a small fortune every time the photocard needs renewing?
Yet another way to squeeze the honest motorist for more cash

I've still got my little red book - although they did send me a pink bit of paper when I moved house.
