Visit your local UOE Post Office to renew your licence.
When your licence is due for renewal, you will receive a D798 notification two months before the expiry date. You are legally required to renew your photo driving licence every 10 years (the expiry date is printed on point 4b of your photocard driving licence). If you do not have an up-to-date licence, you will have difficulties getting car insurance or hiring cars in the UK or abroad. Driving without a valid driving licence, carries a £1,000 fine or your entitlement to drive withdrawn. Contact our friendly team for more information.
If you still have the old-style paper driving licence, you do not have to change it to a photocard licence until you reach the age of 70 or if your details change. However, if you would like to upgrade it, visit your nearest UOE Post Office & Store where we’ll help you sort it out.
