Should I include driver's licenses for us - issues details

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


I'm putting together my file and I realized that including our drivers licenses may not be so simple as:


1. We were still on our mother in law's car insurance until August 2018 at our previous address (we moved here Sept 2017)


2. I only updated the address on my card when I renewed in March 2018


3. My wife only renewed in August 2018


4. The first insurance in our names AND our current address was done in August 2018.


I'm worried our laziness, in part due to if anything came to the old address we could pick up in 10 minutes, will cast doubt on my application.


Any advice?

Not sure how it would matter, if both licenses and insurance show current address just include them.  If asked, which I doubt it, just explain what the situation was and the reason for not updating them sooner.

Your driver licenses show you live at the same address. They are good evidence. If they don't have the same address, then not so great.


Auto insurance is a separate thing and I doubt they will over-think it as much as you are. If both your names are shown on the insurance, then it's evidence.

Thanks for both of your advice on this one so I guess it's safe to include our current drivers license at a minimum.


My only concern was that I only have a couple insurance bills (the last two) which have us at this address and I would just worry they'd ask for additional bills after? Maybe I am over thinking it?


I know technically we should have gotten our own insurance as soon as we moved out last September, the tricky thing is that the car was/is in both my wife and mother in law's names.
