Removal of requirement to renew a Personal Licence
As a result of the Deregulation Act 2015 the Government has removed the requirement to renew Personal Licences with effect from 1 April 2015. Personal Licences are therefore now valid indefinitely.
If you have already been issued with a Personal Licence which shows an expiry date you now do not need to renew it, even when the date showing on your existing licence passes. We will not automatically be issuing new licences to remove the expiry date, however if you would like a new Personal Licence issuing without an expiry date showing you can return your existing licence (badge and paper counterpart) together with a fee of £10.50.
Changing your name and address
As a Personal Licence holder you must inform us in writing as soon as reasonably possible of any change to your name or address details. Failure to notify us of such changes is an offence. Both parts of your licence (or a statement as to why it cannot be produced) should accompany the notification together with the fee of £10.50.
Copies of licences
You can apply for a copy of your licence if it has been lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed. Your request should be made in writing with the fee of £10.50.
