I can’t remember doing …

Someone mentioned that you had to renew your driving licence every three years after you are 70. My OH is nearly 74 so panic ! He had left it at work, managed to get my hands on it last night. It is valid until he is 76 so I must (it wouldn’t have been him 😀) have renewed it last year. I do not remember doing this. What else have I forgotten? Better to have forgotten I have done it than forgetting to do it.

My licence was mysteriously renewed in November even though it didn’t run out till January. I still haven’t had the card back though!

Just realised I’m 70 July 2023 so will have to re knew mine . How do you do that, so you send it back to DVLA . Had to do that recently to have change of address applied

You can do it online. Think you wait for the new licence to come and then send old one back. How come I remember this but not remember doing it!

Thanks for the reminder, I’d forgotten I had to do this later in the year💐

Think they need renewing every 3 years after 70.

Oops I know I didn’t renew mine yet it was done, I think it’s due to the Covid mess that the DVLA is in.
