    Are you sure? I've heard many people say less than a week.

    Did your order yours online? I did + used the option where they'd use my passport photo. It ended up coming in a day. I was really shocked cause my parents told me it takes around 2 weeks.

    It shouldn't be long then. If mine came in a day then there's no way yours would take over a week.

    Yep, absolutely sure. Whilst many do show up within 2 weeks, the DVLA have a 6 week window to sort an application. 😆
