Driving Licence on Reaching 70 years of Age

Cyprus driving licence

The information in this page refers to FULL non-vocational driving licences.

You should read this page in conjunction with the main Cyprus driving licence page.

To obtain a Cyprus licence.

Application has to be made in person at the District Offices of the Department of Transport or Citizen Service Centers (CSC) with the documents shown below. I would recommend the  Citizen Service Centers

If you already have a Cyprus driving licence you will require:
1) A completed TOM 7 application form – only available in Greek.
The form is is available and an English translation of the main headings can be downloaded pdf here.

2) A form TOM 153 already signed by a doctor, stating that you are fit to drive. This is in the main an eyesight test. Drivers require a medical on reaching 70 years of age and each subsequent renewal.

Staff will take a photo.

Drivers will be issued with a temporary paper licence. The temporary license will entitle the holder to DRIVE ONLY IN THE REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS until the arrival of the photo-card licence. You will be notified when the new licence is available for collection at the District Offices of the Department of Transport for your area.

Cyprus temporary driving licence

The licence is normally valid for three years.

The earliest a driving licence can be renewed is within the last month before the expiry of the old one.

If you don’t have a Cyprus licence then the document requirements are listed on the Cyprus Driving Licence page.

Cyprus Driving Licence

Cyprus driving licence
The information in this page refers to FULL non-vocational driving licences.

FULL driving licences issued in the Republic of Cyprus from Monday 29th June 2015 will be EU photo-card licences. This has been an EU requirement since 19th January 2013.

Student/learner drivers and those reaching 70 years should read this page and those pages specifically for those groups on this site.

If you are resident in Cyprus and from the EU :

1) You can drive on your FULL domestic EU licence until it expires.
Providing:
a) the licence was issued by an EU member state,
b) it is valid,
c) you have reached the minimum ages applicable in Cyprus.

You cannot change the address on your EU licence to one outside the issuing country. It is accepted within the rules that the address will be from the issuing country and will not be current.

2) You may exchange your EU licence for a Cyprus driving licence, which is exchanged on a like for like basis.

If your licence is in a language other than Greek or English you have to supply a certified translation. This must be done by the Embassy of your Country or the Cyprus Press and Information Office.

Cyprus may refuse to recognize the validity of a driving licence issued in another State where the holder has a licence that is restricted, suspended or revoked or cancelled in another State.

A driver cannot hold more than one driving licence issued by an EU State.

driving licence

When your current EU or National licence expires:

It must be renewed in your country of current residence.
Photo card licences only have a validity of between 10 and 15 years depending on country of issue and should be renewed before they expire.
The earliest a driving licence can be renewed in Cyprus is within the last month before the expiry of the old one.

If your current EU or National licence is lost or stolen:

It must be replaced by one issued in your country of current residence. The replacement will be based on proof, supplied by you, from the issuing country.

Cyprus driving licence

To obtain a Cyprus licence.

Application has to be made in person at the District Offices of the Department of Transport or Citizen Service Centers (CSC) with the documents shown below. I would recommend the Citizen Service Centers.

Documents required to obtain a Cyprus licence:

A completed TOM 7 application form – only available in Greek.
The form is is available and an English translation of the main headings can be downloaded pdf here.

The photograph can be taken by staff at the District Offices of the Department of Transport or the CSC.
OR
Two recent photographs which are 45mm in height by 35mm in width and complies with passport photograph standards.

  • Aliens Registration/Residents Permit and copy(s)
  • Produce evidence that you have been resident in Cyprus for six months e.g. utility bill. If you don’t have this, or similar proof, you will need to attend the District Offices of the Department of Transport to find out what might be acceptable in your case.
  • Passport and a copy of the page with the holders details on it
  • The appropriate fee

When exchanging your licence, the original and two copies of all pages of your national licence (which you will have to surrender).

The cost of the Cyprus licence is:
€ 40 (up to 65 years of age)
Over 65 free

Drivers will be issued with a temporary paper licence. The temporary license will entitle the holder to DRIVE ONLY IN THE REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS.

The licences are sent to a laboratory abroad to be prepared. You will be notified when they are available for collection at the District Offices of the Department of Transport for your area.

paper driving licence

Drivers who have a FULL Cyprus paper licence issued on or after the 19th January 2013.

The Road Transport Department will inform those drivers in writing when to go to the District Offices of the Department of Transport of the Department or CSC to obtain their replacement EU licences. The replacement will be FREE because their owners already paid the Department €40 for the plastic driving licence. This is to avoid overcrowding and discomfort to those drivers.

The period of validity is 15 years from the date of issue for categories AM, A1, A2, A, B, B1, B+E.

After reaching the age of 55 years if the driving licence holder falls into one of these categories, the licence will be renewed, valid until age 70 years.

The period of validity is 5 years from the date of issue for categories C, C+E, C1, C1+E, D, D+E, D1, D1+E.

The existing Cyprus full paper licences issued before 19th January 2013 are valid until the expiry date on them, except those that expire beyond 2033. They are only valid until the 19th January 2033 no matter what the expiry date is on the licence. Drivers who wish to exchange their paper licence for a photo-card licence may do so at a cost of €40.

The Transport Department has issued the following guide regarding the new arrangements in Greek. It can be downloaded pdfhere.

If you wish to add a category of your paper licence or it is lost, destroyed or for other reason need to be replaced or renewed it will be issued under the new arrangements.

Doctors Certificate.

Drivers require a medical and a signed form TOM 153 from a doctor stating that the driver is fit to drive in the following circumstances:

  • The applicant is 70 years of age or over (see specific webpage)
  • has disabilities
  • when applying for licences in categories C, C + E, D, D + E, subcategories C1, C1 + E, D1, D1 + E,
  • special classes G, H, I.

The form can be downloaded here.

If you are resident in Cyprus and from outside the EU :

Some countries outside the EU have an agreement to exchange existing FULL domestic licences.

Your FULL Cyprus licence is valid:

For 15 years for cars and motorcycles and 5 years for buses and trucks.

In all EU member states.

In many others when going there as a visitor. Check with the country you are visiting if it is outside the EU to see if you need an international driving permit is also required.
