Nothing changes. I just lost my mini bus licence. Too much messing to keep it. Medical and yearly updates if I remember.

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?

Just in case I took a photostat of my licence for my B+E however that wil nto be necessary now as you are automatically awarded the B+E end of autumn.

My new licence included BE when I turned 70, so did my wife’s.

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.
Same thing regarding a friend's wife who also exchanged her SA licence for a UK and it was endorsed so that she could drive a HGV and also got a motorcycle licence? She can't drive a HGV or even ride a motorcycle. Probably hasn't got the HGV element anymore as she is now over seventy.

Another cunning plan developed in UK to get around the shortage of HGV drivers, or Deliveroo/Ubereats delivery staff.
