§ Dr. Winstanley
asked the Minister of Transport what provision he makes for the exchange of a three-year driving licence bearing an endorsement after the expiry of the period of the endorsement but before the date of expiry of the licence.
Mr. Bob Brown
Section 7 (7) of the Road Traffic Act, 1962, provides for the issue of a new licence, free from expired endorsements, on application being made to the licensing authority by the licence holder and subject to payment of a fee of 5s. and surrender of the existing licence. The new licence is valid for the unexpired period of the surrendered licence.
