Department for Transport research concludes that over 553,000 hours per month are spent on the road by unlicensed drivers. Industry statistics show that nearly one in three of all drivers covering business mileage have penalty points on their licence. Every day, drivers' licences are revoked with or without their knowledge. The photo card driving licence introduced in 1998 has a ten year validity. Those issued in 1998 started to expire last year (2008). In our experience, over 80% of drivers holding these licences are unaware that they expire.
