    Just had to do mine, its just another tax if you ask me!!

    Worth noting though, if you let the post office take your picture and check the form AND send it for you, it will cost you £4.50, instead of paying a fiver for 4 passport photos.

    its a scandal to have to pay £20 for a licence that does not "run out" till you are 70!

    I still have the paper type. Might be inclined to keep it for as long as I can.

    I renewed mine in November at the Post Office. Saves all the hassle and faffing about taking photos.

    Didnt they question you, it says up to £1000 fine and 3-6 points ?

    Or is that just scare tactics ?

    I explained to the policeman that pulled me over that it had expired when i looked and he said its fine not to worry. Went to the station with it and they said its ok sent it off and once i get it back send off for a new one.

    3 points and there my only points in 10 years of driving

    The reason for it is so that the Picture is reasonably up to date. And the way around the £20 fee is to just change address, which is free, and all you need is send in a picture.
