If I pay by Direct Debit, do I need to cancel it when I turn 74 or 75?

There has been a change in the law for free licence applications on the Isle of Man and Guernsey. Find out more.

Please don’t cancel your Direct Debit - we will do this for you once we’ve processed your application (this may take up to 28 days). Simply apply for your free over 75 TV Licence.

If you're over 74:

We'll send you a revised payment plan detailing the remaining payments we will take from your bank or building society account up until your 75th birthday.

Then at the correct time we will stop taking payments. If you have overpaid we will refund any money that we owe you.

If you're over 75:

We'll cancel your Direct Debit and refund any money that we owe you.
