got the answer i was looking for :)

If you hold a valid European community licence from Republic of Cyprus after passing a test in Republic of Cyprus you may drive in GB for the period set out below:


Car, motorcycle driving licence holders (ordinary driving licence)

until aged 70 or for three years after becoming resident, whichever is the longer period

Lorry, minibus, bus driving licence holders (vocational driving licence)

until aged 45 or for five years after becoming resident, whichever is the longer period; if you are aged over 45 (but under 65) until your 66th birthday or for five years after becoming resident, whichever is the shorter period; if you are aged 65 or over for 12 months after becoming resident

In order to continue driving after these periods, you will need to exchange your community licence for a GB licence

If you are a holder of a community licence with vocational (LGV/PCV) entitlement and you are a resident you must register your details with the DVLA. To register, you will need to complete form D9, application for a GB counterpart licence. The form is available from DVLA’s form ordering service at www.direct.gov.uk/Motoring or by calling our Customer Enquiry Group on 0300 790 6801.
