Older Drivers Forum

The Older Drivers Forum is about keeping mature motorists on the road safely for longer.

The simplest method is to ring 01296 873011 when you will speak to a robot – you will need your old pass in front of you to give the information required. If there are no changes in your details e.g. address and all you responses are accepted the new pass should be with you within 10 days. If any problem arises you will automatically be switched through to another line where you will be able to speak to a real human!
