Driving licences due to expire between March and August this year are to be extended by 7 months

Services are operating at reduced capacity because of measures to prevent the spread of Covid 19.

The system is also experiencing a spike in demand since resuming operations so the Department of Transport has pushed out the expiry dates.

In addition the exemption from having a medical report for those aged 70 and over is also being moved out to year end.
