The DVLA has warned drivers that they must replace their driver’s license after a certain age.

If this is not observed, the drivers are no longer allowed to drive.

The DVLA has warned drivers over 70 that they must renew their license every three years or face fines.

If they don’t do this, they are no longer legally allowed to drive after the age of 70.

In addition, those who do not renew their document commit a serious crime.

Their driving license and insurance are void, they face a fine of up to £1,000 and even their vehicle is taken away from them.

But an expired driver’s license doesn’t mean drivers have to stop driving forever; you just have to renew it.

The process is very simple – drivers must complete a D46P application form which the DVLA will send you 90 days before your 70th birthday.

Luckily, you can also pick one up at your local post office.

The DVLA said on Twitter: “After the age of 70 you must renew your driver’s license every three years. This is easy, quick and secure online.”

The online process is straightforward and the replacement should arrive in just a week.

To apply you will need a valid email address, your social security number, addresses where you have lived at the last three years and a valid UK passport number.

The DVLA said they can drive while their license is renewed if they meet several conditions.

Drivers must have their doctor’s approval, have a previous valid driver’s license, drive under the conditions of the previous license and their application must be less than one year old.

In addition, the license cannot be revoked or denied on medical grounds; Driver must not be currently disqualified or disqualified as a high-risk offender after June 1, 2013.
