Oops. I misunderstood your request.

What you are describing is org-mode's default behavior---i.e., to show
all todos with deadlines in the todo list, but only to show deadlines in
the agenda when they are within org-deadline-warning days.

To ensure this behavior, you'll want to make sure that
org-agenda-todo-ignore-deadlines is set to nil (the default). All todos
with deadlines will then appear in your todo list.

True, but then we're back to the problem with the driver's license renewal.
