I've received an alert about an expired driving licence

What does this mean? 
 
The DVLA have informed us that the driving licence has expired. 

Although the DVLA may send renewal reminders prior to the expiry date, it is the driver's responsibility to make sure that their licence is up-to-date, including getting renewal forms if necessary. Driving without a valid driving licence can result in a fine and penalty points on their driving licence.
 
 
What do I need to do next?
 
The driver can renew their licence on the https://www.gov.uk website.
 
Alternatively they can renew their licence via post using the D798 form and the below documents.
 
Instructions for drivers to renew their licence:
  • a new passport type photo taken within the last month (don’t sign the back of the photo)
  • your current photocard licence (you need to tick the relevant box on the D798 form if you’ve lost it)
  • a cheque or postal order for £17, payable to DVLA (no fee is needed if you have a medical short period licence or you’re aged 70 or over)
If you believe this information to be incorrect please contact Driving Monitor to ensure the records are up-to-date.
