Updating address on provisional driving license
If I put two years, could I face a fine for being honest and not doing it sooner? When buying a first home, you won't be alone in forgetting to update your address with all the relevant authorities after the big move.
Research from insurer Direct Line shows that millions of motorists have failed to update their address with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency.
In addition to keeping their licence address up to date, drivers must also keep their photo is not out of date or they risk another £1,000 fine.
Money Saving expert Martin Lewis revealed on ITV’s This Morning last month that drivers who fail to update the ‘4b’ photo on their licence could received up to £1,000 fine.
