Trick you into changing your original paper licence for a free plastic card type and then charge £21.50 every ten years. And it seems to be compulsory - you can’t say no thanks, I’ll just use my paper licence. What a scam!

Don’t fall for it folks - just keep your paper licence if you have one.

It lasts until you’re 70.

£21.50 is the new 5p imo. Cost of living crisis my backside.

50 million (approx) driving licences held in the UK. Over £100m per annum extra revenue or dare I say... tax!

Problem is you will soon need photo ID at the very least for almost everything especially banking related,I got mine a few years back only to retrieve money from 'bookmakers' and many oldies will be up the creek.

Here’s a question for those in the know…

If one updates their driving licence to a new address (which is free) does the new licence last for another ten years, or just until the original term expires?
Report Aspro May 12, 2022 10:38 PM BST
I don't know PM but I would assume it would continue until its original expiry

I was late renewing my photo licence one year when abroad. Returned home to find threats of £1,000 fines and such like. As the OP said, it is a scam really considering my original paper licence should be valid until seventy.

I was over 3 years late. No penalty, just pleaded ignorance which was true. Then a change of address - no charge. I think the photo-card has the convenience as an id. Does an OAP has to pay to renew after 10 years?

It’s not so much the fee that annoys me, it’s the nuisance factor and a sense of being mugged off.

Just a sense PM ? Laugh

Constant gouging/grifting of a population under a cost of living crisis caused by TPTB yet again...

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

“I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Taylor, 1816.


I live in hope that one day people might wake up but it will only be when they are down to their last morsels and burning twenty pound notes on the fire to keep warm...

Question is ... what happens when they finally run out of others peoples money ?

Short memory punter

Along with less than a handful of others on here I told you in 2020 and 2021 that high inflation was en route and a bigger risk to people than some poxy techno sniffle.. to get into assets with that angle.... I also alluded to organised ongoing supply chain disruption, shortages and possible war ...

Some of us could see this power grab coming a way off...

You on the other hand have contributed hatred, discrimination,an inventory of your assets and premium bond advice to the forum so well done for that mate ...

Is the FED/UN/WEF/IMF agenda a conspiracy theory Polly or did they just put that up all over their websites for the past few years for a bit of a laugh ?

"inflation possibly hyper ( it's coming, hope everyone here has protected their life's work accordingly cos if you're in cash it'll be gone in the blink of a puffy covid eye and real estate may not help either"




Either way high inflation is what THEY are targetting. The FED has said so on many occasions in the last 12 months

Now they've been calling it around 2% for god knows how long which is utter bs

The way they report there is literally criminal ( changed the components for inflation reporting years back) and I talk about the FED because it is the biggest factor in all markets in todays world


It's been nearer 7%+ for necessities for years , maybe 10+

and they want more ? 15/20 % ?


please tell me how that will end for the poor end of the wedge ?

It's troubling

Inflation is pure theft . It's heinous
