    Re: Driving Licence - Due to expire

    As Frank aka cider1 has stated just look on the DVLA website and view your licence records, it's the same form when printed off that may be asked for it you hire a car or take a test drive or ride.
    With that information and asking for a new one saying you've misplaced yours or doing it online you are full proof.

    Do it online as then you still have your old licence until the new one arrives.
    Just have to have a passport or similar that DVLA can use for the licence photo.

    Awesome this, just checked mine, and it tells me- "I can ride a Motorbike",I hate the word "Motorbike", surely, it should be CC Specific? As in, Unlimited CC?
    Any thoughts folks??

    Update

    I followed the advice above and went online and renewed my licence for £14. Pretty straightforward if you have a passport, driver number and NI number.

    Takes about 10 mins.

    I ticked driving licence lost and also went to the DVLA site to check my entitlement - all good.

    Now have to wait a couple of weeks.

    How about the photo or do they just use your old one?

    They use the one from your passport. When you give them the number they get it from the passport office. You don't have to supply a photo if you have a valid passport.

    I’ve just renewed my licence online, first plastic one. Filled it in online on Tuesday, received the licence on Thursday, great service from DVLA. Had all the correct groups.

    Re: Driving Licence - Due to expire

    My new licence arrived today. It is lighter in colour and the categories are shown differently using similar letters and numbers. The picture is smaller and the new licence features a Union Jack on the right side.

    Application to receipt is 5 days.
