Surrendering your driving licence
There’s no legal age at which you must stop driving. You can decide when to stop, but medical conditions can affect your driving and might mean you have to give up your driving licence until you can meet the medical standards of fitness to drive again.
When you decide to stop driving or are advised by your doctor to stop you’ll need to tell DVLA and send them your licence.
Car or motorcycle licences
Download the declaration of voluntary surrender and send it to DVLA with your driving licence. The address is on the form.
Bus, coach or lorry licences
Download VOC99/CERT and send it to DVLA with your driving licence. The address is on the form.
Check your driving skills
Speak to your GP if you want to keep driving but are worried about your ability to do so.
You can also have your driving assessed in a confidential and objective test from organisations like the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and I Am Road Smart.
You must reapply for a new licence if you want to drive again after surrendering your licence.
