    On Friday my full UK licence arrived which was awesome as I needed a form of ID again instead of carrying around a passport (to buy alcohol).

    My problem is as I’m renting at the moment I may be switching houses very often and my licence is registered to my family home. Is there a point of changing the address each time or should I wait till I’m settled into a permanent place?

    Thanks,

    Jason

    You're legally obliged to change your address on your licence every time you move. If you've moved out of the family home, that shouldn't be the address on your licence.

    It's free to update, and you risk a fine by not doing so.
