Driving licence question

Recommended Posts

Just received my photo card licence renewal. It runs out 1st November and I'm 70 end of december. I'm assuming it will renew till the end of December then I'll have to apply again for the 3 year one. According to the form this will come 90 days prior to renewal which will be 3 weeks time. 

Has any one been in this position and am i correct.

My first one expires when I'm 70 (2027) and then I just have to apply for a renewal.

I though so. Looks like it will be £14 for two months and probably won't get it back before my renewal at 70 is sent in which is free.

Also your photo not be out of date.Daughter informs me you can be fined up to £1000.She’s in the police.

That's right. 

If you have a valid passport your ok or you'll need a new photo. 

Also be aware you loose you grandfather rights at 70 unless you use form d4 via postal application along with a medical form from your doctor.

Online applications you loose them as well it tells you right at the end of the online application.

I know what the law is but I've yet to see it happen. 

Obviously not a priority. Followed a police car through town on friday he indicated to pass two lads on electric scooters. Thought they'd pull them over but no.

In the grand scheme of things currently it's not very high on the list at all. The effects of TM are just starting to bite. The full effects will take a little be longer to be seen. In 20 years its easy the worst I've seen across the board, most days a full team is no where near fielded and the demand far outstrips resources. You then have  to base what you go to on what the threat/harm/risk is. 

Sad but true.

C1 mainly that now requires a medical firm.

But to retain pulling a trailer over 750kg we must apply by post or you'll lose that as well.

So I'm told but cannot confirm trawling the internet. 

My mates is due November and he's already applied by post so we'll see.
