To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps DVSA is taking to prioritise renewal of lorry and bus licences which have expired since 31 December 2020.
20 April 2021
All applications to renew lorry and bus (Group 2) driving licences are being prioritised by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency. There are no plans to further extend driving licence validity periods. Group 2 drivers who have previously benefited from an extension to their driving licence must obtain the necessary medical report in the interests of road safety.
