I passed my test on Monday and I have been using my provisional licence as ID.

I'm currently without suitable ID (I don't want to take my Passport out). How long did it take for you guys to receive your full driving licences in the post after passing your test?

Mine took about three months. (and three months after that another one appeared strangely)

I think they normally appear in about two or three weeks.

Yeah, the second one arriving makes me think there was some kind of postal muck up with it.

My guess is the first one disappeared, the post office told the DVLA it had vanished by some strange black magic, they sent another, then three months later the one they sent first finally hit the mat.

It's meant to be no longer than three weeks, I phoned up after 3 weeks and a day, they said it had been sent out on last day of the third week, and it arrived the next morning.

Pre Covid, it usually takes 2 weeks, but due to current circumstances, probably longer. It gets updated once they send your full licence out to you.

You can still drive whilst you are waiting for your full licence, you just need to keep your pass certificate on you.

It will take about 7 working days to arrive, but longer for the system to process
