    I have just sent off for a provisional but a mate of mine said it took 5 weeks for it to get sent to him. This was a few years ago though so I hope things have sped up a bit since then.

    How long did yours take to come (if you can remember)?

    Mine was over a year ago, but as far as I can remember it was much less than five weeks -- in fact, I'd say it took less than two weeks to arrive.

    That will mean two and a half weeks yeah? So it should do, depending on whether there's anything wrong with your application/postal strikes.

    thanks I know there is a postal strike in london, but I live in hertfordshire, so I don't think it will need to go through london to get to swansea dunnno though.

    Yup you can this weekend
    I used my expired passport to get in places, I still looked like the picture so it wasn't too big of a deal just can't rely on it

    Think mine took a week, and when I passed my test I passed on the 19th of March, and by the 23rd I had my proper licence.

    They aren't too bad, to be honest. 5 Weeks sounds like they had a problem with his application.

    My provisional license came through in less than a week. It was my second one though. I think the first may have taken 2 weeks or so
