YOU could be fined up to £1,000 for failing to tell the DVLA about this major life change.
Driving rules are often simple, but there are some new ones that motorists can easily overlook.
And such a rule is so bizarre that it is definitely worth knowing.
Believe it or not, changing your marital status could result in a fine of up to £1,000.
The rules also require motorists to update their license information if they change marital status.
This includes marriage, divorce or widowhood.
We recently looked at each other the other DVLA changes drivers must observe unless they want to face a costly fine.
This includes simpler rules such as a change of address or a change of vehicle.
Motorists are required to notify the DVLA of any changes such as name, title, and address.
This also applies to temporary changes, such as B. moving students into university accommodation.
It goes without saying that these must be reported to the DVLA in an emergency.
And while there’s no direct penalty for not telling the DVLA that you’ve sold your car, you risk being held accountable for driving violations by the new owner.
Other changes may include a change of name or gender, and withholding this information could result in a hefty fine.
Not even declaring a common condition like diabetes could result in a fine as it puts you and other drivers at risk at risk.
You could lose £1,000 if you don’t declare medical conditions affecting your driving, and if you are involved in an accident as a result of your condition you could be prosecuted.
License holders are not only responsible for keeping their personal information up to date, but also for ensuring that their photo is not out of date.
Photocard licenses must be updated every 10 years to ensure the photo is current. Failure to do so may also result in a fine of £1,000.
