Extensions to the expiry dates of driving licences have been introduced in response to the continued disruption caused by Covid-19 to driver licensing services in Ireland and across the EU. The extensions apply to licence holders whose licences expired or will expire between 1 March 2020 to 31 October 2021.

Details of the extensions can be found on the National Driver Licence Service (NDLS) website www.ndls.ie. An expiry date calculator is also available on the website to check the new expiry date of a licence.

It is not possible to extend an individual driving licence. A driving licence can be renewed up to 10 years from the date of expiry of the licence.
