PassportsSince January 1st, the rules for passport validity have changed. To travel, you’ll now need at least 6 months left on an adult or child’s passport before the stated expiry date and it must be less than 10 years old. We recommend you check if your passport is valid using the GOV.UK’s checking tool.
If it’s time to apply for a passport, or renew an existing one, the first step is to have a digital passport photo taken. Did you know your nearest Johnson Cleaners branch can provide you with physical print and digital passport photos? You’ll even receive a digital code for online passport applications. Of course, all our passport photography is guaranteed to meet regulations by the UK Passport Service (UKPS). Click here to find your nearest Johnson Cleaners.
Driving LicencePlanning to drive while travelling in the EU? Then you’ll need to carry a valid UK driving licence. Before you travel, make sure you check that your UK driving licence is still valid - expect a fine of up to £1000 if caught driving with an expired licence. It’s so easy to check, simply find the date on line 4b, this is located on the front of your photocard licence.
Don’t have a photocard licence? Or have a licence issued in Gibraltar, Guernsey, Jersey or the Isle of Man? Some European countries may also require you to hold an international driving permit (IDP) alongside your licence.
