When you pass your driving test and get your driving licence you will no doubt be feeling very proud and happy and there are few things in life which will give you the same feeling. The issue for most people however, is that their driving licence won’t stay clean for long.

This can cause lots of problems when it comes to getting insurance, renting a vehicle or even getting a job.

The problem is that sometimes you are suddenly sprung with the question on a job application form that asks you to list your endorsements. Not knowing whether penalty points applied to your license some time ago have expired or not can be a problem especially if you fail to disclose them and then later are found to be mistaken.

To save yourself the embarrassment, it would be a good idea to make a point of checking your licence before you complete any job application forms. Failing to disclose endorsements on a job application could lead to dismissal for deception which is something no honest person wants in their past employment record. However there is more to check than just penalty points.

Many people are driving around with an invalid licence but are totally unaware of this fact. It is important that you notify the DVLA if you have changed address or if you have any changes in your personal circumstances; this is also something that many people are unaware of. Those who are nearing the age of seventy will get a letter explaining how they need to apply for an extension on their licence; however, this is something that you will have to take care of if you do not get the letter.

It is very important that you are aware of what your driving licence is telling people. More and more companies are now checking licenses thoroughly so it’s wise to stay one step ahead of the game.
