Pensioners who are found to have an invalid license could face a hefty fine. If you are over 70 or will turn 70 within 90 days, you are required by law to renew your license. Elderly drivers must have a valid license and if not, they will receive a £1,000 fine. The DVLA advises that motorists use their online renewal system to avoid any delays. It has also advised the over 70s renew their license directly from the government, and to be wary of any other companies that might appear highly on Google searches.
