The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Unit of the Environment Department would like to take the opportunity to remind all drivers to periodically check the expiry date of their current Guernsey issued Driving Licence.
For Group 1 category licence holders (i.e. car and/or motorcycle licences) the renewal date is most likely to fall in the year of the holder's decade birthday (i.e. during the month preceding their 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th Birthday. From the age of 68 licences are issued for a period of three years.
For Group 2 category licence holders (i.e. commercial drivers) renewals will move from decade birthday to every five years from the age of 45. At the age of 65, commercial licences are renewed annually.
Anyone with a medical record will automatically receive a driving licence reminder letter together with the appropriate medical form for completion in advance of their licence expiry. Medical related licences are issued for periods ranging between 1 and 5 years.
For further information relation to driving licence renewals please contact the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Section on 243400 (option 1 followed by option 3) or visit the motoring section on the States of Guernsey Website.
