I'm worried my provisional licence is lost in the mail

I applied for a licence online on the 3rd of July 2020 , but my passport photo was out of date so I had to finish it off on a paper form (which came by post like five days later and which I sent back on the day it came). It has now been nearly a month since my application was fully in, but I've had no sign of it or anything related to it through email or the post. Am I right to be worried? The website says Covid-19 might make the process slower, but does that mean they're gonna wait til there's a vaccine before they open my postal application??

Try and get in touch with them and see if they can give you an update. There's every chance in has been lost in the post as you say.

They're not going to wait for a vaccine, no. My dad is a driving instructor and he says the wait is currently around 6 weeks due to the backlog. I wouldn't worry just yet.

I think you should perhaps chase it up because I applied for one and got it 3 days later in the mail (and that was a couple of weeks ago)

I sent mine off 7 weeks ago and still have nothing, I managed to get through on the phone line but they couldn’t tell me anything, not even if they had received my application

I applied and sent back the form a few days earlier than you did and I’ve still heard nothing, I assume it’s just a backlog due to not many people being in the office where they process the applications
