Exemption for those on low incomes from Passport and driving license application fees

Background information

Current application fee structures for passports and driving licences are prohibitive for those on low incomes in the UK. These important documents are the only Id proofs accepted by banks. Please exempt from application all those on low incomes using a means tested system to determine entitlement to the exemption.
