DVLA mistake that could cost you £1000…

Millions of British motorists run the potential risk of landing a fine of up to £1,000 for not keeping their details up to date on their driving licence.

Drivers could be unwittingly breaking the law by having outdated details on their licence. If a driver gets married, changes their name or move house then they must inform the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). One thing that drivers will also need to be aware of is that this also goes for temporary address changes such as moving to university.

And it doesn’t stop there, the DVLA recently sounded another warning: Caravan holidays are becoming increasingly popular, with industry figures showing that bookings for 2019 are up by 16% on last year.

There are potentially thousands of motorists who need to check their entitlement to tow, as UK tourists spend around 50 million nights in the UK’s 555,000 touring caravans.

Harvey Alexander, Director of Marketing at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said:

There’s been a significant rise in the number of people choosing to spend their holidays caravanning.

Leisure vehicles provide a fantastic way to explore parts of the country you may have never experienced before, and it’s very important to us that we do all we can to help holidaymakers do so safely and legally.
