Personal Licence Expiry Date

Are we ok to ignore the expiry date shown on the personal licence?

Q: My DPS’s personal licence is due for renewal in July 2016.  I understand that personal licences no longer need to be renewed so why does his personal licence still have an expiry date?

A: The need to renew personal licences was abolished in April 2015 (previously they would expire after 10 years).  Anybody applying for a new personal licence now will not have an expiry date printed on their personal licence, but your DPS is clearly one of the many Personal Licence Holders whose licence still shows an expiry date.  His or her licence does not expire in July 2016 but will continue indefinitely, and there is nothing he or she needs to do.
