Driver Warning: Martin Lewis issues a warning to drivers about a common driver’s license mistake

Lewis has urged motorists across the UK to urgently review their fortune telling licences. This is because drivers who are in possession of an invalid or expired license could be at risk of a £1,000 fine.

The MoneySavingExpert founder said around two million people are currently in possession of invalid photo card licenses, which typically expire after 10 years.

And, if motorists don’t renew the document, they could be fined £1,000, Lewis warned.

It costs £14 to renew a license online.

Writing in MoneySavingExpert’s latest email, Mr Lewis said: “Photo driver’s licenses typically expire after 10 years… If you don’t renew, you ultimately risk being fined.”

Motorists have been urged not to drive with an expired license.

However, they may still operate a vehicle while their application is being processed, under certain conditions, such as driving vehicles they were previously permitted to drive.

Drivers can also continue driving if they have not been told not to by a doctor or optician.
