The DVLA has recently indicated that motorists will now keep their driving licences until they reach 75 years of age.

Up until now, motorists have had to apply to the DVLA when they reach 70 in order to have their driving license extended. The Department of Transport has indicated that new proposals will see this extended by five years.

At the moment motorists can only remain on the road over the age of 70 if they declare themselves fit in that year and every three years thereafter. This includes an eyesight test along with any other health tests that the DVLA may require before granting the driving license.
