    Just wondering on average how long it took for you guys to receive your full license after passing your test (providing your examiner did it for you). Please let me know if you're including or not including weekends

    Passed my test on the 30th March 2016, any estimated arrival times?


    (I know there are threads like this before, but many are outdated and won't be a reflection of current times)

    I sent mine off around 15th March and got it back a week later and I sent it not the test centre so pretty quick.

    Took about a week for mine

    Sent mine on the 15th March, sent it via the test centre so my examiner sent it all off for me once I'd passed my test. Came about 2 and a half weeks later so not too long You can drive legally without your full licence until you get it though. I was just told to carry my certificate if I was worried about anything!
