Hi guys. I would like to ask a quick question. I have finally passed my practical driving test . I have submitted my provisional driving licence + D1 form and pass certificate via post to DVLA Swansea. I have sent it to SA991BJ. That was the address mentioned at the back of pass certificate. I saw some online forum mentioning that I should have sent it to SA991BN if needs to change the address before converting to full licence. What will happen next ? Will my full licence will be delayed ? I hope someone can guide me. I took a photocopy of my licence and pass certificate though.

thank you. they will be used to people sending it to this address and will forward it along. i advise you to use the online services (didn't even think DVLA did paper any more...) and you can change your details on the .gov website

Yep, you sent it to the wrong department so it will be delayed until it gets passed to the right department via internal mail. You'll only be impacted by a couple of days.

Why didn't you change your address before taking your test...? Are you aware it's a legal requirement to update it ASAP?

Hi, I wasn’t aware of it. If I knew it earlier , I would have changed it online to save all the trouble. Lesson learnt. I do shift from one property to another almost every year due to the nature of my job. I will keep this in my mind. Thanks for the advices.
