When to expect your licence

DVLA aims to deliver your new driving licence to you within 3 weeks of receiving your application.

• It will take longer if they have to check your health or personal details.

• Allow at least 3 weeks for your licence to arrive before contacting DVLA.

If you're disqualified from driving you can still tell DVLA if you change your name while disqualified.

Write to DVLA Swansea, SA99 1AB giving details of your old and new name, your driving licence number (if known) and date of birth. Your driver record will be updated and you’ll receive a D27 driving licence renewal application 56 days before your disqualification ends.
