Expiring driving licences are to be extended for an additional seven months.
All driving licences with date of expiry between 1st February 2020 and 31st August 2020 will be considered as valid for a further seven months.
This extension will be automatically applied and new licences will not be issued between these dates.
It also removes the requirement for a medical assessment for certain drivers.
The new arrangements will be put in place shortly, as soon as a new EU Regulation becomes law.
