    I coached my new manager to check & remind folk about the date on the driving licence card & promptly got caught three years out. Ahem.

    My travel claim is now on hold til the lovely lady at the post office gets my new licence card sent through. (Blimey their cube is potent medicine - backdrop, camera, signature plate and biometrics scanner all in one place!) For the peace of mind thus granted? Absolutely worth the extra fee.

    Hi everyone!

    I realise this thread is a bit old now but hoping it might get seen anyway!

    My driving license has expired and needs a change of name and address. There is no one form which covers all of that and the Post Office are baffled and gave me the wrong info. I tried calling the DVL;A tonight but went round the houses pressing different options for so long it was shut before I could talk to anyone!

    I wondered if anyone else has had this situation and what you had to do to renew?

    Thanks so much in advance!

    The form (D1 pack available from post office or from DVLA) should say up the top left (on the front page) "What are you applying for" and then "please put (image of a blacked out box) against all that apply".

    The 3 you want are:
    To change the name on my license
    To change the address on my licence
    To renew the photo on my license

    £17 doing it by post I believe (the name & address change are free, its the renewal you're paying for).
