    £20 - application fee

    The licence in N.Ireland has been 10 year photo licences for years now (frome before I first passed my test 24 odd years ago). Very useful as ID as this country has no proper ID cards (stupid). When I lived in England not having a state issued photo ID (that I was willing to show) was a pain in the behind. £25 is steep, but now adays nothing is free.

    Don't understand why your complaining, its over £90 to renew a passport every 10 years, now that is a rip off. You could have just changed your address, all that would have cost you would have been the cost of the photo. Just wait till you reach 70, you need to renew every 3 years.

    But you still have to update your photo every 10 years regardless of what happens in the meantime... and there is a cost associated with that.

    From what I can see, there isnt a way around it as they charge you for the photo update process.

    Anyways, no matter.... its just another stealth tax
