70s over uk driving

UK Driving for Over 70s
#1
Anyone dealt with the problem of UK driving with your Spanish licence for over 70s?  There's plenty of info that you can drive for up to a year on a Spanish licence, but then there's the caveat that it will expire when you turn 70.  Beyond that, there's no information on the DVLA section of the gov.uk website.  Has anyone found any answers for this?

I believe it will be the same as the UK rules, my British  licence expired every two years and you just simply renewed it, although I have no documentary evidence that it will be the same, I just feel it is to small an issue to become a problem.

I exchanged my UK licence for the Spanish licence last year at 69 years of age.  The Spanish gave me a 4 year licence.   Expires September 2024, when I will be 73 and a bit.

There is a paragraph in here that says you can drive in UK on Spanish licence, for short visits, or exchange it for a UK licence.

Thanks Tamara, that clarifies that point, I really could not see it as an issue.
