Car - sometime in 1968
HGV - grandfather rights 1970
Bike - sometime in 1973
PSV - sometime in 1986

HGV and PSV were lost when I had a heart attack in 2006 and everything else ran out in January this year. The photo on my licence ran out in 2012.

This is not the face of concern. I employ people to drive me around these days and it's much more enjoyable. :D

Car - 1988 (a year 'late'!!)

Bike - 1997

Loads of other stuff on the licence cos I's old (well, I feel relatively young after reading this thread!) - here's hoping the French let me keep them all when I'm eventually allowed to change my licence for a French one!! :thumbup:
