TWO million UK drivers’ licences are out of date – and if yours is one of them, you could face a £1,000 penalty.
Driving with an expired licence could get you three or six points on your licence.
Repeat offenders can even see their cars seized or destroyed.
The picture needs renewing every ten years – regardless of how dashing you still are.
Lewis said: “It’s easy to forget, but a quick check now could save you a fine of up to £1,000 if your photocard’s expired.
“It’s an annoying £14 to renew (£17 if you renew by post), but that’s a far better option than the fine.”
If your licence has already expired, the DVLA says you’re no longer allowed to drive.
So if that’s you, renew your licence immediately and wait for your shiny new card to arrive before you get behind the wheel again.
Otherwise, a four-figure fine, between three and six penalty points and, in rare cases, your car’s destruction could be in your future.
You can renew your licence via the government’s official website.
Or you can send it off in the post once you’ve alerted the DVLA.
We revealed that Brit drivers waste £2.3 million each year on the extra £3 charged for the postal option.
Other DVLA rules you should pay close attention to include listing ALL your medical conditions.
And thousands of drivers were recently forced to renew licences automatically renewed during the pandemic – but the window closed on November 30.
