Just filled in the form for OH to apply for his new driving license (he will be 70 in July).

Have now decided to pay and get the post office to check all the documents they want to see as proof of identity and age. We realised that we would be sending off in the post, passport, birth certificate, national insurance number and bank statement (proof of pension payment!) what a find for somebody who wants to clone your identity.

Just imagine if it went astray in the post!! Which is why we will pay out to get it pre checked and then wont have to send it all.
