I need to renew my mini-bus licence. Can you tell me what I need to do, now I'm over 70?

You need forms D2 and D4 and have to undertake a medical and an eye test to retail Groups D1 and C1. Eye test will be free but new spectacles won't be. A GP medical is about £160. The whole lot for me took three months and cost about £500. This explains: www.honestjohn.co.uk/faq/driving-at-over-70/
