It has been announced that motorists in Northern Ireland whose driving licences are set to expire are set to have an extension for seven months.

The extension applies to those licenses with an expiry date between February and August of this year. Unfortunately, this extension does not apply to taxi drivers as they are not covered by the EU driving licence directive.
