    That's the compelling irony of the demand for "original" documents. Many boat document originals, even down to the "signatures", are just a very long string of ones and zeroes.

    The SSR certificate comes in the post as a hard paper copy. Got mine last week and immediately laminated it myself.

    Be careful with lamination. We recently had something arrive and it specifically said NOT to laminate it as that would invalidate it (the document was to do with citizenship). I also notice that my ICC has a holographic security mark, which lamination might well damage or even destroy. Not saying that's the case with the SSR, but laminating official certificates should be preceded by enquiry as to whether the document may be laminated.

    I suspect the DVLA might have something to say about a laminated paper part of your driving licence if it needed points adding!

    Paper counterpart to the driving licence was scrapped about 18 months/2 years ago.

    I didn't know that, and am sure I've been asked for it since its abolition, which you are quite right about.

    It doesn't alter my point that lamination of some official documents may actually invalidate them. The one I was specifically warned about by the issuer was in connection with my wife's citizenship, so it was actually pretty important!

    Thankfully, some of us still have a proper paper driving licence.

    Way back in 1987, when paper licences were still current, I hired a car in New Mexico, in the USA. After they'd looked at my tatty bit of paper and turned it every which-way, they finally asked me where I was from. It took quite a while to get through to them that I am British - I did, perhaps, make things difficult for myself by not saying "English" - but as far as I'm concerned, I'm a citizen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. After that, I'm Yorkshire - England doesn't figure in my identity at all. But I was biting my tongue when they asked "Where's that? South Africa?

    Perhaps the fact that it was "Rent-a-Wreck" that we were dealing with had something to do with it - I'm sure the usual airport companies would have been fine with it.

    So How do you renew?



    What do you get now? A PDF to print yourself like the Ofcom license?

    I bought an SSR in 2008 for £25, not sure how long it was that price before then
