From January 2013 new rules for lorry and bus licence holders will come into place.
Licences issued from 19th January 2013 onwards will be valid for a period of 5 years.
For drivers under 45 years of age, every five years when you renew the licence you will be required to sign a declaration to confirm you meet the medical standards necessary.
For all drivers over the age of 45, you will still need to renew your licence every five years but will also be required to provide a medical examination report before the licence is renewed.
