Punters who get in your car to go home and ask if they can borrow a charger to charge their phone when they only live a few minutes away.

Do not think you should have the lip on because some idiot cannot apply for renewal at the correct time,I cannot see why a Council should issue a temporary badge if they cannot issue a renewal.

All drivers end up with a temporary badge as you are not sent renewal papers till 6 weeks before and then it takes up to 4 weeks to get a medical so at best application goes in 2 weeks before due date and 6 to 8 weeks wait for DBS means council will NOT issue the badge until that has been seen so every driver gets a temporary badge then their proper one once DBS is in.
