Just thought i would share my experience of getting a new licence due to address change.I was quite worried after reading about people "losing" their bike entitlement,and all the bollocks that then ensued.However,it is now possible to update your licence entirely on line which allows you to keep your original as proof of your bike test.They take your photo from your passport file for your new licence.It costs £20.00 to do this and mine came back in less than a week.Hope this helps someone.Mick

on works if you have a new sort of passport
the photo on my passport is older than the one on my licences. so i need to do my the old fashion way by sending off a photo.
And I don't have a passport
I have just had to update my photo. I posted mine but said I'd lost the old one.
It's just been returned and everything is fine.
Just as well. I was one of the unlucky ones that did loose my entitlement when I sent mine for a change of address. I can't afford to do it again. Again.
