It’s easy to forget to update your driving licence when you move home or get married, but did you know that you could get fined £1,000 if you get stopped by the police?
Outdated Licences in Figures
You’re not alone. According to recent reports, 2.6million motorists are in this predicament with out-of-date licence information. When questioned, 3% of married women still had their maiden name on their licenses and 2% should have admitted a notifiable medical condition to the DVLA. Lastly, 7.5million people still have a paper-only licence.
