Hi and thank you in advance.
I don't drive anymore just due to not wanting a car and am happy walking anywhere. I do not own a car and have a 10 year long licence, about halfway through.
Have updated electoral roll.
Not in car.
Don't own car.
Not jaywalking or anything.
Cop asks for licence for ID, not driving related.
I show licence and say I moved from address and said new address near location. All truthful.
Cop trying to heavy me said it's an offence to not update new address within 2 weeks! WTF? If the licence is just sitting in your pocket not being used. Wah.
Vicroads Victoria if it matters. Interested in other states thoughts too.
No fine…but was he for real? I have looked and am looking and can't imagine legislation for walking with an un-updated driver's licence. If you are driving, I understand, but is just possessing an old but current licence with an old address in your pocket an offence?
