Free Driver’s Licence for over 70s
If you are aged 70 or over and you wish to renew your driver’s licence, there is no cost for the licence but you must provide a medical report with the application.
In order to get your free driver’s licence you must do the following:
1. Attend your G.P.
2. Submit medical report signed by your G.P.
3. Fill out application form.
4. Submit previous driver’s licence.
5. Send 2 passport photos which you must sign on the back.
Information for Driving Licences for over 70's can be see on the Case Studies Page, click here to view
Your medical visit to the G.P. is NOT covered by your medical card and so the standard surgery fee will apply. Medical report forms are available from the motor tax office, G.P.’s surgeries and your local Citizens Information Centre.
The licence may be valid for 1 or 3 years depending on your medical report. Application forms should be sent to the motor tax office and your new driver’s licence will be sent out to you by post.
