DVLA misses teen's error; sends driving licence with her address printed as "my dad's house"

Updated: 

A teenager received a driving licence which gives her official address as "My dad's house".

Officials at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency failed to spot Eve Paterson's mistake when she applied for an updated licence.

The 18-year-old , from Greenock, Inverclyde, was astounded when she received the card and posted a photo of it online.

She posted on Twitter: "I've had to update my licence and accidentally wrote 'My dad's house' on it.

"Why? So stupid!"

The image shows Eve's new driving licence with her name and date of birth printed accurately.

Single mum could go to prison because she didn't pay tax she didn't even have to pay

Earlier this year, research from comparethemarket.com that 1.5 million drivers in the UK have incorrect address information on their licence, meaning they could face a penalty of £1,000.

UK law states that it is illegal for a driver to be incorrectly registered at an address as they may be involved in an accident where their current address is essential.

The DVLA has been contacted for comment.
