Driving licences renewal dates extended

Driving licences renewal dates extended

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has further extended renewal dates for driving licences that expired, or are due to expire, between 1 February and 31 December 2020. Driving licences expiry dates were originally extended for seven months until the end of August 2020.

This means that drivers whose photocard driving licence or entitlement to drive expires between 1 February 2020 and 31 December 2020 have an 11-month extension from the date of expiry. Drivers do not need to do anything as this extension is automatic. Those affected by the temporary extension do not need to apply to renew their licence until they receive a reminder which will be issued before the extension expires.

This extension only applies to full GB driving licence holders. It does not apply to provisional driving licence entitlement.
