Re: Driving Lience

Renewed mine in April and could not find the old one, still can't, I just ticked the box that said it was lost.
I had to send a photo because my old license was a paper one but still got the new one within 5 days.

Re: Driving Lience

I had to have a DVLA eye test to get my licence back. I now am in the 70's yrs old bracket with 3 year licence permission.

What I can't find out is do I have to retake the eye test to get the next 3 yr driving licence or will I be notified when it is due for renewal

still got another year to go yet on my existing one but would like to know anyway

With me My Eye sight is standard if I wear glasses, so I just stated that on the form that I need glasses....no trouble.

But I have my eyes tested each year (its Free)

A few years ago did a illegal left turn in London and had the blue lights flashing.

Was driving my wife's car register to her going to pick her up from the theater

Asked for ID I had none on me but I gave my name was told car not reg to me.

We are impounding your car as you have no proof who you are

Then the other copper in the police car flashed his lights and the copper had a word, came back to me and said "Been a bad crash at Piccadilly lucky u on your way sunshine" got back in the wifes car and picked her up.

Always have carried my lience since

Re: Driving Lience

Seriously, if all you are using the car for is the weekly supermarket trip, trip to the dentist and GP, it nay be cheaper to pay a taxi

I still have to work and my car is costing me 80 a month for travelling 8 miles a day. If I wasn't working it would be a taxi

That is pretty sound advice in my opinion, a car is a costly indulgence and for such limited use a taxi or, even better, an Uber would be cheaper.

Re: Driving Lience

Just as a matter of interest do the cops in the UK still ask what your number plate is?

That wouldn't work here because the number plate changes; for example if damaged - they are pressed out in prisons - but they might ask you for your driving licence number because that stays with you for life (not sure what happens when you move interstate and return)

It is an offence to drive without carrying your driving licence in NSW (probably in the other states as well), A driving licence is also your ID.

Got it in one.

I filled out the form on line and was instructed to cut my licence in half and return it.

A bit of a relief that I got my new one within 4 days.

Re: Driving Lience

Still got the paper one, won't have the card on principle, by the time I'm 70, we'll be out of fossil fuel anyway, and we'll be travelling around in driverless Golf Buggies, so, guess I'll never have one.
