So after seven tests, three years and two hospital admissions ya girl scraped her pass with 13 minors (it sounds bad but I have a serious personality disorder and chronic anxiety meaning that I can't cope with test conditions; I'm actually a very safe driver outside of driving tests).

My question is this- when will I get my sexy pink licence? I've been using my provisional for ID and my passport is out of date.

When did everyone get theirs?

Still waiting for mine (only passed last Weds) but I was told about three weeks (examiner told me that DVLA are busy this time of year apparently).

OP needs it for ID as her passport is out of date.

I need my licence for ID but they took my provisional so I don't have any ID. I'm also a pretty baby faced 20 year old.

Says within 3 weeks, but mine came a week and a bit later! I did take my test in January though, so they may just be busier now

Also congratulations on passing! I remember I failed mine first time round and literally panicked because I thought I'd never pass. Happy for you!

What I was asking was is the "up to three weeks" closer to three weeks or one week I wanted to see what other people's experiences of the waiting were.

I'm aware that my social life will be dead for at least a week regardless- but that's the price of success!

Maybe the OP just needed to talk about it because it has been a difficult road for her.

Don't you have to send off your provisional? I gave mine to the examiner after the test as he said do that or post it. Believe it is around 2 weeks until they arrive, I can not exactly recall. I drove with the test certificate in my car until it arrived though.
Well done!

You caught me. It was a massive achievement and I wanted to post about it!

But I am really short on ID right now and I need to know for how long. The instructor said "up to three weeks" but that honestly can mean a lot of different things. I just wanted to know what other people experienced because sometimes "up to three weeks" means a week and they're just covering their asses whilst other times it really does mean three weeks.

I'm off to uni in less than three weeks.

Depends on the time of year, amongst other factors. No one can tell you how long it'll take.
