I had a look at my Dads drivers licence over the weekend and it appears that it is over 2 years expired!
Can he just go to the Garda station and sign a form to get a new one or does he have to do a driving test?
Officially, he has to do the test again but they MAY let him away without re-sitting the test.
But then, two years is a long time out of date.
he didn't do the test the first time round either
who makes the decision? the gards or the tax office?
You have 10 years from the date of expiry to apply for a new licence.
He can just go to the local tax office/garda station/post office, fill out the forms, hand in his old licence, and wait a few weeks for it to come back to him.
If it's a Full licence, he has 10 years from the date of expiry to renew it.
If it's a Provisional, he has 5 years.
Just fill out a renewal form, hand in the old licence, 2 pictures, the money, and, if required, a medical report (if he's over 70 or has trucks/buses on it).
Hope this helps.
No offense to anyone, but its just shows you what a joke our driving licence is.
Excellent, thanks a million guys!
