Renew photo driving license

I'm sure this question has been asked before but here goes
My UK driving license expires next year well the photo card does .
Does this mean I have to change to a French license not really a problem I suppose but would prefer to keep UK one .
Just looked on line and they need passport number which surely would show that I am resident in France MMmmmm . Old Passport still in Old Uk address but could change at the same time to my parents address which I use .
Any advice gratefully received Please .

Thank you Graham that was very helpful .
Think I will wait as my license does n't run out till October next year so will just sit tight .
Interested in how wife managed to get her s . I am home staying at my mums about the time so I may just change address and renew at the same time . Worth a try me think Lol.
