    I posted my application with a photo on Saturday with a first class stamp so that it arrives today, and I have tracked my application and it still says awaiting for application return form. What is happening?

    Whilst it may very well have arrived today, that doesn't mean it'll be processed today.

    Give it three weeks, and if you don't have your licence, contact the DVLA. It's very early days, though...

    For christs sake, it'll be in a pile along with the thousands and thousands of other applications they have to process every day...

    It can take up to three weeks...

    1) Government is always ****ing slow

    2) It's the time of year when sixth formers start wanting to learn to drive so it's going to be busy

    3) You didn't do it via the quickest method which is to allow the DVLA to use your passport photograph
