COVID-19: Bus and lorry drivers temporary changes for renewal of expired driving licences

The UK Government has announced that it will be easier for bus and lorry drivers to renew their expiring driving licences and has temporarily relaxed the requirement for bus and lorry drivers to provide a doctor’s medical report in order to renew their licence.

Under the scheme, drivers will be able to receive a temporary 1-year licence, providing they do not have any medical conditions that affect their driving and their current licence expires in 2020 licence.

Drivers with health issues will still need to declare these, and those with health issues that prevent them from driving safely will not have their licence renewed.
