Due to reasons that may come up for discussion elsewhere, I have just found out that my wife "never got around to" changing her driving licence from her maiden name to her married name. We've been married 23 years...

How much trouble is she in and what can we do about it?

What do you non-carriers use for photo ID, like for picking up parcels at the Post Office?

We take some photo ID. What we don't do is routinely carry photo ID that we rarely need to produce on the off-chance that we'll need to pick up a parcel that we forgot failed to be delivered the day before. smile.gif

In any case you don't need photo ID to collect a parcel from the Post Office.

Can those, like me, with the old paper licence who are over 45 and passed car test years ago before the licence laws changed still drive a 7.5t & 16 seater minibus without additional test or medicals?

Yes, but you will need a CPC to drive them professionally.

Those of us who passed the car test years ago before the licence laws changed can still drive a 7.5t & 16 seater minibus without additional test or medicals even when we have exchanged our old paper licence for a modern driving licence with photo ID.

However, if you need to make a medical declaration then the groups go to the current set. I.e. C1 and D1 disappear.

I don't even know where my licence is, let alone carry it with me. If I were to loose my wallet or get it stolen, it's something else that needs to be replaced or a criminal could use to steal my identity.

What do you non-carriers use for photo ID, like for picking up parcels at the Post Office?

I ask because I come from a country where the driving license (spelt precisely thus) is the primary form of identification. I moved the UK after the photocard had been introduced, but when the paper "counterpart" was still in use. I am surprised there are still people who only have the "standalone" paper one, frankly.

I don't have any photo ID, apart from an old passport which expired last year. Had the pink licence last updated 20 years ago.

Thanks for clarifying that. Don't know why but I always (mistakenly) thought that once you changed from an old paper to photo licence you then had to undergo periodic medicals from age 45 if you still wanted the up to 7.5t & 16 seater entitlement on your licence.
