Renew your Driving Licence for Free Online - if you're 70 or over

Published: 29/04/2021

Renew your driving licence online with DVLA for free if you’re 70 or over – or will be 70 in the next 90 days.

It may take longer than usual for you to get your licence because of coronavirus (COVID-19).

If your licence expired between 1 February and 31 December 2020

Your driving licence or entitlement to drive in the UK was automatically extended for 11 months. This is because of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The extension started from the date your licence was due to expire.

You will not get a new licence as part of the automatic extension. You’ll only get a new licence when you renew it.

You can renew your licence online at any time before the extension ends.

Renew your licence as normal if it expires on or after 1 January 2021.

If you’re driving abroad
You must renew your licence before you can drive abroad if your licence or entitlement to drive in the UK has been automatically extended.
