Liverpool is home to more than 300 drivers who are over the age of 90, including two are aged 103 and 102. The information was acquired by the Liverpool Echo via a Freedom Of Information Act request made to the DVLA.
The figures show that there are 226 men and 85 women licenced to drive in Merseyside. They are also some of the safest drivers in the city. Males between the ages 91 and 11 in the city have an average of 0.11 points on their licence compared to the 0.57 of those aged between 21 and 30. Neither of the 103 or the 102 year old men has a single point.
Drivers over the age of 70 must renew their licence every three years to prove that they are still capable of operating a vehicle. It is just 10 years for younger drivers. A spokesperson for Brake reminded people that while the driving habits of elderly people may be predominantly safe, they could still suffer from eyesight or hearing issues that could impair their abilities.

It’s not hard to imagine that the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency gets some incredible excuses from those who have missed the deadline for paying their vehicle tax. However, some of them you just couldn’t make up.
The agency, which is responsible for maintaining a database of road users in the UK, released a list of ten excuses they got over the last year earlier this week. It is an attempt to remind people of the importance of paying on time. The list was released as part of a multimedia campaign. It was designed entirely by staff members of the DVLA at no cost.
The ten excuses they listed were:
01) I took too much Viagra and couldn’t leave the house.
02) My accountant told me I’m due a tax rebate so I didn’t think I needed to pay again this year.
03) I was on my way to the Post Office to tax the car and called into the betting shop. There was a horse running in the 2:05 at Doncaster called ‘Don’t Do It’ so I bet on that with my car tax money and it lost.
04) I fell out of a tree picking plums and broke both my arms.
05) My mate said that if the cost of the tax is more than what the car’s worth you haven’t got to pay it.
06) I had man flu and couldn’t go to the Post Office.
07) I didn’t tax the car as it’s dusty in the garage.
08) My dog ate the V11 reminder.
09) I’ve been out the country for four months and I forgot where I parked my car.
10) I didn’t remember and the reminder on my phone didn’t work
The DVLA campaign won an award in the first ever Public Sector Communications Excellence Awards last week, which were held at Manchester University. They won the Silver Award DVLA.

The DVLA have issued a warning about a fake scam message that British motorists could be receiving. It’s an e-mail or text that claims to be a driving license renewal reminder but, in fact, has nothing to do with the DVLA. Clicking the link could leave you seriously out of pocket.
It leads you to a fake website where you will be encouraged to renew your license. It asks you to complete a form which they will check for £80. You then enter your financial details. However, it actually just goes straight into the pockets of a handful of scammers.
A spokesman for the DVLA said: “Drivers should be aware that if they follow the link in these messages they will be directed to a third party.”
The site is not illegal and therefore cannot be taken down. It doesn’t claim to be the DVLA website and so is not in breech of UK law. Technically, they are just a legal form-printing service. Scam websites like this exist in spades across the internet and users should read the text carefully before handing over any banking details.
The official website for driving licenses can be found here. If you are concerned that this scam might affect you in the future, consider bookmarking this page in your browser for future reference. The actual cost of renewing your license should be no more than £20.
Number Direct is a telephone directory and call routing service and is not connected to DVLA. The direct contact number for DVLA can be found in the public domain or on their official website.
