DVLA warns motorists of further delays to driving licence applications – seven week wait


The Government agency has been battling against a number of obstacles which have caused the backlog of paper applications. Drivers who are looking to renew their driving licence with a new photo will have a wait of at least six weeks, as the DVLA are still processing paper applications as of February 23, 2022.

Anyone applying for a driving licence with a non-UK identity will also face delays, as applications for this are still being processed as of the end of February.

The DVLA website states that the online services are as normal and without delay, advising drivers to use the “quickest, easiest, and often cheapest” way to deal with a licence renewal.

When applying online, drivers should receive their driving licence or vehicle registration certificate (V5C) within five days.

If a driver has already applied online, the application is already being processed.
