I would change it asap as I didn't and got stopped for not wearing seatbelt. I ended up getting a formal written caution from police for not changing my address. No action was taken for seatbelt offence.
Oo, really glad about the reassurance here - mine's 13 years out of date address-wise and I've been putting off changing that ever since I read about the potential fine! I'll get on to it later in the week
I only changed mine when we bought our first place together, just left it registered to my parent's address before that. Had an accident with the police involved too during that time, and they didn't care.
DH changed his last year as his licence was falling apart (old paper one) his was still registered at his parents address. He left home 19yrs ago, I'd been nagging him to change it for approx 11!!! No issues, but he would have been fined if stopped by the police.
I got a provisional 21 yes ago, at parents address, & I've never changed it - I don't even know where the licence is. I've been resting on my laurels because its still my family home ie not a stranger living there.
I had no idea it was an offence to not change my address on my driving licence and it's still registered at my family home where i still receive a lot of my post. Anyway I went to change it today having discovered this and it required that I tell them how long I've been at current address which is a year and 6 months. Does anyone know anything about this? the fine can be up to £1000!! Im absolutely terrified!
