Lapsed HGV Licence


Recommended Posts

Hi,

My paper HGV3 licence ran out back in '93, not long after I left the TA.

Is there any way that I can resurrect this licence under the new licencing laws and what hoops do I have to jump through to do it?

A medical obviously but what else?

 

Thanks in anticipation,

Your licence would have been upgraded to a Class two licence when the changes happened. I notice you are 48. I'm not sure, but I think all you need to do is to apply for a photocard driving licence along with a medical report from a doctor to regain your entitlement. You will also need to apply for a digicard as most new trucks have the new digital tacho. Give the DVLA a call and explain the situation to see where you stand.

How to re-apply for your lorry or bus driving licence

 

You’ll need to fill in a D2 application form and the medical questionnaire relevant to your condition. The D2 form is available from DVLA's form ordering service You can search the DVLA medical A to Z to find your medical condition and the correct questionnaire for you.

If you are aged 45 to 65, then you only need to submit a D4 if you have not done so in the last five years. From the age 65, licences are issued for one year and each renewal must be accompanied by a completed medical report form D4.

This form is to apply licences that have been suspended or revoked, NOT expired, if your licence expired many years ago you have to retake the test

Your existing licence will only expire if you do not complete your medical standards test when you reach the age of 45 or if you miss one of the obligatory medicals; it’s mandatory that all HGV drivers undertake a medical once every five years. If you do lose your entitlement to your licence through one of these causes, however, you simply have to complete a medical and send off for your licence again. Under the current rules, the DVLA will issue you another licence as there is no time limit.
