Car hire abroad?

I can't see why anyone would still have an old paper driving license anyway... mine fell to bits about three weeks after I passed my test!

 

The paper supplement is also being done away with (if its not already been so) as everything is computerised now. When you hire a car in the UK they do a DVLA check and that will flag any endorsements you may have failed to mention

I've still got my old 'old' paper one and I passed my test when I was 18.  I've never been told I need to change it for a photo one though so I just wont ever hire a car over here and never go abroad anyway cos I don't have a passport either lol

my old green one was swapped for one of those pink ones when i got married and changed address . never changed address since so i still have that one and never had a photcard one especially as you have to renew it every ten years. don't need to renew the paper ones unless they fall to bits.

 

the old green one i had was always in my wallet and as a result by the time i got married it was a jigsaw puzzle to open. great fun whenever i was asked to show my documents, especially by the roadside on a windy day. :mrgreen:

What Sid says. And if you don't renew your photocard one and continue driving you're committing an offence and can be fined. A good reason to not move house and hang on to your paper licence!

So someone who wants to empty your bank account will have to go to all the trouble of chopping your finger off. A brilliant idea!
