No it's free @Frank Sanoica Driving licences automatically expire once you reach the age of 70 and if you wish to continue to drive, then you must renew your licence. From then on, you must continue to renew it every three years. The DVLA automatically sends a reminder by post about 90 days prior to the licence expiry date and this will include a D46P, so you can apply for a licence renewal by post if you prefer this method to online renewal. This usually takes around three weeks. There is no charge for renewing your licence once you reach the age of 70. Drivers aged less than 70 are normally charged £20. The RAC Foundation says there are more than four million motorists in Britain aged over 70 and this will continue to rise as the baby boomer generation reaches retirement age. There are also nearly 200 motorists aged 100 or over still driving!
