Renew it online ticking the box allowing them to use your passport and former address.

Collect new D/L from your old address in the next 14 days.

 

Never tell any UK authorities you live outside the UK.

Unless you want to apply for a tax refund on the basis of having left the UK before the end of the last tax year you were paying PAYE.

I've done that twice in twenty years, receiving a 600UKP refund both times.

The second time was when I went back for a few months and happened to do some temporary work on PAYE.

I've never had a problem getting tax refunds on the basis 'I'm retired' and won't be earning any more this year.

Application processed online and refund in my bank within 14 days.

Telling them you're overseas is a mistake you may live to regret.

I'm not retired, so did earn and wanted the refund.

I have no UK address or bank account, so it's not an option for me to 'not tell'.

Sorry to drag this up but what you say interests me. Would you please tell me  the name of the insurance company your family member had and which added you as an additional driver. The reason I ask is my wife is Thai has a Thai drivers licence and will be in the UK on a visitor visa. Many thanks.

NFU Mutual (my mother owns a smallholding in mid-Wales and is an NFU member). Just been added again for this Christmas. Still £12 for up to 30 days (maximum of 30 days per year with an additional driver).
