Car Hire If Address Wrong On Licence?

I'm facing a challenge: I have a trip to Scotland booked tomorrow. I've booked a rental car through StressFreeCarRental. 

I've discovered that my driver's license still displays my previous address. 

Will this discrepancy between the address on my license and my actual address pose an issue? 

If I do update it through the DVLA (online), I'm conscious that my physical driving licence will show the wrong address. I'm not sure what to do.

Thank you for your guidance.


  • In the absence of a better informed comment, what I would do is take the licence plus 2 forms of ID (council tax, utility bill etc) showing your current address.  If your passport shows your current address, definitely take that.
