My new licence included BE when I turned 70, so did my wife’s.the reason i ask is this, i looked up on dvlc and they say when you renew at 70 make sure you tick that you want everything kept on your lic that you can drive, otherwise they take it off automatically. someone told me this is not the case and you can only do this, and you have to have a medical. im in perfect health, eyesight, can still run, so as long as i declare any health issues should be ok , has anyone else had this problem?
Another abnormality I was reminded about is that my son's friend got his South African driving licence in about 2020. He sent it in to be exchanged for the UK licence and it came back with B+E and in addition apparently a HGV licence although he has never driven a HGV in his life. This was several years ago.My new licence included BE when I turned 70, so did my wife’s.
