Another Gord back door tax...

Recommended Posts

Yesterday i received a letter from the DVLA (with accompanying form to be completed) explaining that my photocard driving licence needs the photo updating & which would cost me ?20 plus the cost of the photograph,probably ?4 at a photo booth...i ask you,?20 to stick the photo on their database & print it onto a poxy plastic card.Another case of rip off Britain & the motorist being shafted again.

I don't have a plastic licence either Geoff, but if you move house then you will be forced to have a plastic card with photo, and pay for it, and pay to have it updated every, I think, 10 years though it might be more frequently. :shock::shock:

You have to get a new licence if you move house, or change your name, or if you get points put on your licence. Put simply, any change that has to be reported to the DVLA will result in you having to get a new plastic licence and pay for it. :wink:

I moved house 2 years ago and just got round to changing mine. ?22 I think it was and they used the photo off my passport. 4 days from me applying to the new one arriving.

 

It is a rip off.... but then again what isn't in this country?

When did this new ruling come into being I don't remember reading anything?

 

With the pink styled licence they simply write your new points on it and jobs a good un apart from the ?60 you have to shell out or in the Welsh case a session about driving.

when you get points I think it is written on and sent back Geoff. I Think it is only when you move or change details you need a photo card or if you lose the paper one. (I actually lost mine in Gibraltar but never told DVLA and then we moved so it didn't matter anyway!)

 

Anything that involves changing details requires a new photo ID card

unless you get points,move house or change name then it should not need renewing for ten years(that being the length of time they put on your face changing)

 

unless you have plastic surgery that is :shock::?:twisted:

I think that it terrible Baz that you did not report your license missing, Just think how many illegals could be running around with documents obtained from you :wink:

Well I wouldn't put it past one of our wonderful border patrols to let 20 afghan terrorists in to the UK just because they all have my name on a photocopied driving license....... Gordys bunch of bums have probably already given them all a council house too!! :lol:
