Drivers face fines for expired licences. A massive 300,000 photo card licences are due to expire in the next 12 months, yet a significant proportion of drivers are unaware that the new photo-style licences require updating every 10 years. Unlike the superseded paper licence, which was valid 'for life', the new identity card versions feature a 'valid until' date, at which time motorists must shell out an extra £17.50 for a new card. It's thought that a lot of drivers are not aware of this requirement.

This summer marked the 10th anniversary of the introduction of the new photo card licence and of the cards due for update a massive 28% are still outstanding, according to the DVLA. These drivers could face a £1,000 fine if asked to surrender the licence.

Though the expiry date is printed on the front of the photo cards,(SECTION 4B) it can only be identified as such when the owner turns the card over and reads the small print.

Making matters more confusing is the presence on the back of the cards of a date until which time the motorists is registered to hold the licence - their 70th birthday.

According to the DVLA, reminders will now be sent to drivers with photo cards due to expire, while the Association of British Insurers has confirmed that insurance cover is unaffected by an expired photo

Mine says valid from 1999 to 2039 inclusive but it's still a paper one, never got a card one or got asked to get one. Mind you, I still have to tell them I've changed my address (fine of £1000).

The annoying thing is, when I last changed the address on it, they sent it back with my name spelt wrong!! They changed it from Jacqueline to Jackueline and added an 'E' to my surname. Bloody idiots idiot

i think its wrong to charge you £17.50 to get it changed though! they cost enough when you pass your test!

Mine expires in 2012.

Also, just got on to what Jay mentioned.

My previous licence, before I moved was valid for 50 years, however, when I moved and changed my licence, it now has a 10 year span think

So, if you never move, your licence is valid for 50 year, but move, and you need to renew it every 10 years at a cost....

...another money maker for the government...
