Risks On Your Drivers’ License And How To Protect It As a motorist plying the roads, you definitely stand a risk on your driver identity. Your only evidence that you have went through a drivers’ training and passed the requirements set by the department of motor vehicles is your driver’s license. Any queries on your driver’s license will make you liable in a case before the law. You are therefore obligated to ensure that your driver’s license is kept safe and clean to avoid the consequences associated with the process of acquiring a new one. One of the risks posed to your driver’s license is theft or loss. Your identity as the actual owner of a lost or stolen driver’s license is often quite threatened in such eventualities. Your stolen or lost driver’s license may be used to steal your identity and result in you being framed and implicated in cases you may not have an iota of knowledge about. You can imagine the miseries that such an act can cause you as the party framed in such a case. This will naturally call upon you to ensure that your driver’s license is kept safe to enable you avoid going through such inconveniences. However in the eventuality of the driver’s license getting lost or stolen, you need to take immediate action to report this to the authorities and have the license where necessary. There are also certain acts and incidents that you may be involved in that may cause potential dangers to your driving license. Most of these are traffic related offences. These offences are in fact prosecutable in a court of law. One of these offences that will negatively impact on your driver’s license is failure to provide driver information. A defense available to such a charge is by proving to the court that you used due diligence to identify who was driving at the time of the offence or by arguing that you never received request to prove the driver at such a time.
