Cat C renewal

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just noticed that all my licence groups run to 2035-the eve of my 70th birthday, but my cat C runs out in 18 months on the eve of my 45th. Anyone know what I need to do to renew it-I thought about looking on DVLAs website, but the last time I did it reduced me to weeping frustration, so it's over to Arrsers.......

    basically the Cat C (old LGV) require a medical test every 5 years after the age of 45 till the age of 65. below is an extract from the DVLA.

    Also remember the photo licences are only valid for 10 years i think, like other photographic ID.

  3. The good news is the price for the damn medical....£70 approx.
     
  4. and the new licence costs too
    £35 , THOUGH I MAY OF MADE UP THE AMOUNT
    Its not free anymore upon renewal, so yet another ZanuLiarbour Tax
     
  5. Just renewed mine at 45. Completed all the paperwork in front of the doctor he signed it and got sent off and a new licence arrived a week later.

    Billy bonus as the 6 spent penalty points were removed so didn't have to pay to get it done :D .
