You can continue driving while you wait for your new licence to arrive.
More than 2.6million motorists have failed to update their driving licence with their current address and run the risk of a £1,000 fine if they are stopped by the police, according to research by Direct Line Car Insurance.
You can update the photo on your driver license, learner permit, or non-driver photo ID card when you renew the document.

Licenses that have been Expired for over 1 Year cannot be renewed Online or by Mail. You will have to take a vision test and if the examiner feels you need re-testing you will need to re-take a written and/or driving test.
The Direct Line research also found that three per cent of married women still have their maiden name on their driving licence while two per cent of motorists admit they should have informed the DVLA about a notifiable medical condition, such as physical disability or visual impairment, since their current licence was issued.
Holding an out-of-date or otherwise invalid licence does not remove your entitlement to drive but further action, including the possibility of a fine, can come about if you need to show your licence to a policeman, hire a car or commit a driving offence abroad.
This helps prevent driving licence impersonation - stopping disqualified and perhaps dangerous drivers taking to our roads.'Correction: Originally in the article Direct Line incorrectly said that by 2015, paper driving licences will be phased out and all new drivers will be issued with photo-card licences.
The DVLA has since contacted This is Money to clarify that existing paper licences will continue to be valid after 2015, with new drivers issued with photo-card licences.
