I have a passport because I do actually enjoy leaving the country on occasion, but I have refused to update my old paper driving license to a
photo-card, more on principle than anything else.
I got pulled over last year and the cop chuckled that he hadn't seen a battered paper licence like mine for years, then he asked if I still lived at
the address printed on it. I replied 'no, not for years' to which he advised that was an offence and he could nick me for it. I explained that I
didn't really care, I am legally able to drive as per government records, and if he wanted to waste thousands of taxpayer money on a pathetic
conviction such as not updating my address/license then go for it - the cop then queried how they could be sure who I am and I laughed that 'you'
already have my photo, DNA and fingerprints on record so if they can't be sure from that there must be a flaw in the system somewhere - he chuckled
again and let me on my way.
If it suits me then I'll update to a photo license, but until then, nah, I don't blindly comply to anything really, never have.
