I just recently passed my driving test, on the 2nd December, the examiner took my provisional license straight away and that it would be with me within 3 weeks, however a lot of my friends received there’s within a week. I’m only desperate because My 20th is on the 16th and it’s now the 14th and no license has come through (passport has expired by 3 months and many places don’t accept it as ID if out of date) Just wondering if this is a busy period for DVLA and if there’s any way to track how long until the license arrives?

The best way would be to ring the DVLA, as they should be able to an update of where your licence is.

They'll 9/10 times tell him to call back once 3 weeks is up.

Mine took ages, almost 2 weeks. Yours might show up tomorrow or even Saturday. Remember it's a busy postal season; to be honest first thing I'd have done after they took my provisional license in your shoes is started considering passport renewal but it is what it is!

Admittedly I had a valid passport as a backup (this is why you always keep them in date), and when I got my 2nd provisional with my updated address; I never did find the time to send them the original back; so I still had that as well lol.

Congratulations on the pass by the way.
