Photocard licences replaced paper licences in 1998, and must be renewed every 10 years. 

Check your correct address is on it

If you forget to update your address you could risk a £1,000 fine if stopped by the police.
Check your name is correct if you've changed it
The third check is to make sure your name is correct on your driving licence, particularly if you've changed it since getting married.
