Currently we are required by law to replace our photo-card driving licence every ten years, on the basis that appearances change over that time. This was not a requirement until the introduction of the photo-card part of the driving licence. The current charge for this is £20. Motorists should not be required to pay every 10 years to replace a licence that is still perfectly valid. If the government/DVLA insist we need to replace them this often, then the charge to motorists should be abolished.

Why is this idea important?

This is effectively identity cards by stealth, and we are made to pay for it too.

  1. I totally agree with this proposal. This is a scheme that no one asked for and is not required for so-called anti-terror purposes. In my opinion this comes under that category of tasks that have been created to keep someone in a job. Might I suggest employing people to sort out the pot-hole problem first.
