Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.

No it’s a year old but I did send it off to be renewed

I just want to know if the third party claims would be covered by my insurance as my photo part was expired

Not per se unless it lead to the revocation of your licence.

If so they could dishonour the claim but that hasn't happened.

I would be surprised if anybody has even noticed this yet.

Can I clarify anything for you?

I just need a big reassurance that my insurance will cover third party damages while my drivers license photo was expired

As I said, they could dishonour the claim but probably they would not.

Just renew your photocard
