Driving Offence Penalty Fines For Expired Photo Licence

Drivers may be given hefty fines of up to £1,000 if they do not renew their photo-card licence.

Photo-card licences were put in place 15 years ago and over 30 million drivers now have one. These are usually valid for 10 years and there is a legal requirement for drivers to renew the photograph at the same time as they renew their licence. 

Drivers mistakenly think the photo-card is valid for life as is the paper counterpart and thus could render their car insurance invalid too.

Motorists must renew their photocard licence when it expires. If they fail to renew their licence and supply a photo that is a recent and true likeness, they will be breaking the law and may have to pay a fine of up to £1,000... DVLA
