What are DVLA's rules for over-70s?

Once drivers reach 70, they must apply for a new licence every three years.

More than five million motorists aged over 70 hold a driving licence, official figures show.

In 2018, the number of drivers aged over 70 referred by the DVLA for extra testing increased by 20 per cent, from 4,424 to 5,500. 

Motorists over 70 must complete a self-assessment every three years and declare they are in good enough shape to continue driving. 

This involves simply filling in a form and there is no requirement to take a formal test or medical examination. 

However, they must tell the DVLA if they develop a medical condition, such as Parkinson's or epilepsy, that could affect their driving. 

The DVLA can then arrange for a doctor to examine the driver, and will in some cases ask them to take a driving or eyesight test. 

Motoring groups have resisted calls for restrictions or bans on older drivers, pointing out they have fewer accidents than young people who have recently passed their test. This is reflected in their lower insurance premiums. 

But police and safety campaigners have raised concerns that some older drivers are in no fit state to get behind the wheel. 

Key worries are failing eyesight, slower reaction times and conditions such as dementia.
