The DVLA are warning all who passed their driving test before 2014 that it’s time to renew their driving licence, and if they don’t, they could face a fine.
In response, Richard Evans, head of technical services at webuyanycar comments:
“To drive anywhere legally, you must hold a valid driving licence which has the most up to date and correct details of your name, date of birth and full address.
“If you know your license is about to expire, or your personal details have changed, it’s crucial you update your licence.
“Our research found that almost all (93%) drivers say they’ve seen motoring costs increase over the last 12 months.
“And with rising costs across the board, drivers should take extra precaution to ensure they aren’t stung with additional charges, like unnecessary fines.
“If drivers don’t have a valid licence, the DVLA warn you could be fined £1,000 and even risk having your vehicle seized.
“This will be a much heavier price to pay than the cost of updating your licence which starts from £14.
“Our guide on renewing your licence has everything you need to know about where and how to update your documents.”
