Driving licences expire at 70 years of age, so when you reach 70, you need to renew your driving licence if you wish to continue driving. You then need to renew it every three years afterwards.

Photocard Driving Licence Application. Pop in to any of our Car Tax issuing branches and pick up a UK driving licence application form (D1). I am enclosing my current driving licence. D1 Application for a driving licence You must read booklet INF1D when filling in this form.

The DVLA (or the DVA in Northern Ireland) will send you a reminder and an application form to renew your licence as your 70th birthday approaches and then every three years afterwards when your licence is due for renewal.

If you do not renew your licence, you will not legally be allowed to drive after your 70th birthday. If you carry on driving, your driving licence and motor insurance would not be valid, and you would be committing a serious offence which carries stringent penalties, which could include a heavy fine and having your car seized by the police.

When you receive your new licence, don’t forget to dispose of your expired licence and keep the new one in a safe place. /freedom-fighters-trainer-7-download/.

How to Renew Your Driving Licence

It’s free to renew your licence, which you can either do online or by post.

Online

You can renew your driving licence online (not in Northern Ireland) for free if you're 70 years or over, or if your 70th birthday is within 90 days. You'll be given a user ID code and instructions on how to renew your licence.

By post

The DVLA will send you a D46P application form 90 days before your 70th birthday, and then every three years afterwards. Complete the form and return it to the DVLA. If you haven't got the D46P form, you can use a 'D1 application for a driving licence form', which you can pick up from a Post Office.

If you have a photocard licence, you will need to send a new passport-type photo with your application form. If you have a paper licence, you will need to send an up-to-date passport-type photo with your application.

Postal applications take up to 3 weeks.

In Northern Ireland

In Northern Ireland, the DVA will send you a DL1R application for renewal of a driving licence form about two months before your 70th birthday (and every three years from then on). Complete the form and send it to Driver Licensing, County Hall, Castlerock Road, Coleraine, BT51 3TB with your photocard driving licence and the counterpart and a new passport type certified photograph.

For full details of renewing your driving licence in Northern Ireland, see Renewing Your Driving Licence at 70 plus in Northern Ireland.

Medical Declaration

When completing the form to renew your licence you will be asked to declare any medical conditions you have on the form and confirm that you meet the eyesight standards for driving. You must answer these questions honestly. It is a serious offence not to declare a condition or disability that might affect your driving; you can be fined up to £1,000, and if you are involved in a crash, you may be prosecuted.

It is a very good idea to have a medical check before renewing your licence when you reach 70 years of age, and again each time your licence is renewed.

Your New Driving Licence

When you receive your new driving licence, check the details carefully. For example, if the code 01 is shown on the back of your photocard licence, you will need to wear prescription glasses or contact lenses when you drive.

Read any letter or leaflet that comes with your licence carefully. For example, it may say that you can continue to drive as before, or it may say that you have been given a temporary driving licence only for use during a Mobility Centre driving assessment.

Don’t forget to dispose of your expired licence and keep the new one in a safe place.

Insurance

You must, of course, be insured to drive your vehicle. It's essential to be open and honest with your motor insurer and make sure that they know about any health condition that might affect your driving.

Failing to inform your insurer of a relevant fact (for example, that you have a health condition that may affect your driving) could invalidate your insurance.

If you do not renew your licence but carry on driving, you would not have a valid driving licence and so your motor insurance would not be valid. You would be committing a serious offence which carries stringent penalties, which could include a heavy fine and having your car seized by the police.

DVLA, Driving Licences, and Category D1
Wednesday 15th February 2012
I currently hold a driving licence (issued in December 1986) which includes an entitlement for Category D1 (minibuses, with Code 101- not for hire or reward).
I work part-time for an organisation which has, as a peripheral function, the need to tranport its staff from place to place - work I have undertaken for many year in accordance with Category D1.
The entitlement is, according to my licence, due to expire in 2029.
I have now received a letter from DVLA saying that my entitlement has expired and should never have been on my licence when it was re-issued (following a change of address) eight years ago.
This has some potential impact - 1) I may have been driving without entitlement for some time, and 2) I can no longer undertake some of the tasks required by my part-time employment.
My question to PH is - has anyone else recently experienced this sudden removal of entitlement and, if so, how did you deal with it?

You're not the only one it seems but doesn't look like most people get much joy out of the DVLA:
BBC Watchdog covered it here
Think its a case of 'Computer said no 8- '

Hi,
Unless your licence was revoked & then reissued - usually when issuing a short term licence on medical grounds you should retain your C1/D1 entitlement. The simple act of changing an address should not cause this entitlement to be lost.
If you get the run around from the call centre you need to ask to speak to a more senior person to explain the situation. The whole C1/D1 area can be a bit complex for them to understand.
Hope this helps

Hi
I have now written to DVLA, quoting DVLA's own INF28 which states that, having got my D1 entitlement with my C1 entitlement, I should have kept it until age 70. I await their response, and will update the forum on receipt.
(edited my OP to say 'eight years' rather than 'two years')
Tuesday 28th February 2012
Well - today I received a nice thick envelope from the DVLA - the answer to my written question regarding this matter?
Nope.
An application form for lorries and buses, a medical form, and an information booklet.
So, not only have they not answered my question, the have sent me an application form which seems completely irrelevant (as I already hold a C+E licence, and had a medical 18 months ago, so not due one for 3.5 years)..
I await the next revelation from the Swanswa pixies with baited breath..
Tuesday 28th February 2012
When I passed my class c licence 3 years ago I had a letter a couple of months later asking me to send my licence to them so I rang them up to ask why and was told that they had also put the c+e category on aswell and needed to remove it.
Tuesday 28th February 2012
With the username madscanner I have to ask ... did you scan the licence before you sent it to DVLA?

Still got the Fiero(s) I see.
I got rid of mine. Wasn't using it.
Thursday 1st March 2012
Well I haven't any experience with DVLA with correcting these things but I had my license of 30 years re-issued 6 years ago due to change of address and have retained C1, D1 until 2029.

2028 for me so that makes me a little older, you young whippersnapper - LOL
Monday 5th March 2012
Well, I have now had an answer of sorts from DVLA.
The response is somewhat disjointed and seems to contradict itself in places but it appears to be:
1 - I have only ever had a provisional D1 entitlement.
2 - This provisional entitlement expired in 2004, when I failed to renew it (at the same time as I renewed my C+E licence).
3 - A change in legislation means that drivers cannot have a D1 entitlement without taking a test.
4 - In order to regain my provision D1 entitlement, I need to complete a licence application form (the one for Lorries and Buses) and a D4 medical form D4.
5 - As I passed my test before a threshold date (1989), I have an 'implied entitlement' to drive minibuses, not for hire or reward.
6 - Because my provisional entitlement expired 8 years ago, I must return my licence because it states that I have entitlement to drive minibuses, not for hire or reward.
So, at the end of the day, if I want to continue driving minibuses, not for hire or reward, I can because I have an implied entitlement. In spite of this, I have to return my licence so they can remove the bit that says I have the entitlement to drive minibuses not for hire or reward.
If I want to have a provisional intitlement (why would I, if I already have an implied entitlement), I have to submit the same forms I submitted when I renewed my C+E licence 18 months ago.
It seems a somewhat overly bureaucratic solution to a problem that doesn't really seem to exist..

If you passed the car test before 1997 then ask them one question -
Did all those UK pre 97 licence holders have D1 101 ?
