The standard retirement age in the Department for Transport is 65. Prior to 2006 the standard retirement age was 60. The numbers of staff that worked beyond the standard retirement age in each of the last five years is as follows:

Standard retirement age Staff working beyond standard retirement age
2008 65 141
2007 65 155
2006 65 145
2005 60 771
2004 60 (1)358
(1) The figure for staff working beyond the standard retirement age in 2004 excludes staff working in the Driving Standards Agency. Due to a change of system in the agency in that year a reliable figure is not available.
