The times they are a changing. Beware, you may very well regret this decision. We too made a claim a couple of years ago, insurance paid up without a quibble, but this time (in January 2017) they wanted to see my friend's passport with latest stamp in in. As another poster mentioned, if there had been an accident with a fatality there would be serious consequences.

Re: U.K. Driving license

Apparently if your out of the UK for more than a year your DLVA driving license becomes invalid.

Re: U.K. Driving license

The legislation requires that you renew your UK driving licence every ten years and you can only do that if you have a perminant UK address. The DVLA are also aware how long you have been out of the country.

None of the posts in this thread have answered the OP's question. Also as far as I know there have been no changes to the driving licence laws in Turkey. If you live here for more than six months, you need a Turkish licence to drive here!
