Hi there,

I ordered my provisional license on the 26th October and people on most websites have said they received theirs within two weeks. I did not use my photo from my passport so had to wait for them to send me an extra form allowing me to give them a picture and my signature. All seemed good, but it has been over a week, I used 1st class stamping and the application tracking says that they are still awaiting my form.
On the form it said if the form is not complete and delivered within 21 days of the original application, then it has to cancel my application and remove my data. Is it something to be worried about? I have only 6 days until the 21 day limit.Name:  Screenshot 2018-11-10 at 17.57.02.png

It's three weeks following them receiving the form back. If you sent it first class, it will have arrived the next working day.

The online portal will not update until they process your application and send out your licence (this happens at the same time).

Just wait.

I don't really have any experience in this area but I would ring up DVLA asap, try to arrange a call rather than email as it's probably easier to get the message across over phone.

Call them and they will send a application return form to the address on your license for you to fill in and return back to them.
