Need for the Document
A driving license may be reissued in circumstances of loss, theft, and change of personal details (name, address, etc.)
On January 2 2013, the IMTT introduced a new system of licence renewal, which only applies to drivers who received their licence for the first time after that date. AM, A1, A2, A, B1, B and BE licences are renewed when the holder is aged 30, 40, 50, 60, 65 and 70, and every two years after that. If the driver acquired their licence between the ages of 25 and 30, their first revalidation is at the age of 40.
Drivers with commercial licences (Class C or D) must renew their licences regularly once they reach 40 years of age. This includes drivers of vehicles over 3.5 tonnes, buses (vehicles with over 8 passenger seats) and vehicles with towing facilities.
If they received a licence after January 2 2013, drivers of C-class vehicles have to renew their licences at the ages of 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65 and 70. After that, they must renew the licence every two years of age after that. Drivers of D-class vehicles must renew their licences at the same ages, but cannot drive D-class vehicles after they reach the age of 65.
All drivers of Category A, B, B+E and Sub-Category A1 and B1 vehicles aged 50, 60, 65, and 70 are obliged to renew their driving licences. After age 70 renewals must be applied for every two years. The rules cover several types of vehicle including motorbikes, cars with a weight limit of 3.5 tonnes and vehicles with tow bars
