    Did you know that you will be fined £1000 if your photo licence card is over 10 years old? I didn't .
    Check the date, at 4B . If it's out of date , you need a new photo taking and a new picture.

    I've tried to copy and paste the link( off Martin money hospital) but every time I touch the screen on my ipad to paste it, it logs me out of fun , for some reason?

    I've checked mine and it's ok till the 6 month of 2016. Though I look nothing like the photo on the card:rofl:
    I must gave sent in an old photo for it:whistle2::RollEyes: When I had it done.

    Yes this has been going on for a long time ... fortunately we still have the old paper ones! The only downside to this is that we can't use them as proof of ID so always have to use our passports.

    Probably ios8.2 update. since it came out every time I touch the screen 1st time in a new thread it reloads the page to the 1st post and shows a box saying an error occurred so the page was reloaded.

    Never had it before 8.2, which is amusing as that was supposed to cure the cockups they made in 8.0 :clap2::clap2:

    I seem to remember that by some time in 2015 everyone must have a photo ID licence and the paper one is to be discontinued

    I haven't heard of this. Can anyone shed more light on this?
    I too still have the old style paper licence.

    Thanks Techno! Looks like those of us with paper licences are still ok.

    See above

    Extract
    "If you have an old style paper driving licence issued before the photocard was introduced in 1998, this change won’t affect you, and you should keep your licence."

    I was still entitled to keep the paper licence,but for ID purposes I found it more beneficial to change it. However recently banks and other agencies are demanding at least 4 items,generally licence,passport,debit card and another form!
