Is your licence in date?

Did you know, more than 3.6 million people are driving on expired licences?

Check yours today to make sure you aren't driving illegally. Most driving licences have to be renewed every ten years. You should receive a DVLA reminder a few months before your expiry date, but if you don't renew for whatever reason, you could risk a fine and you'll likely be breaching the terms of your car insurance too!

So, if you need to drive as part of your caring role, it is really important to keep up to date.

To check your expiry date, look at section 4b on the front of your photocard. If your renewal date is coming up you can visit a post office, or click here to renew online.

If your driving licence has expired, you will have to apply for a new licence. You can check the DVLA website or speak to your local Post Office staff.

If you are concerned that the person you care for may not be safe to drive, e.g. due to their eye sight or a condition such as dementia, you can contact the DVLA and did you know we have a driving assessment team at QEF in Carshalton? Find out more here.
