    DVLA Driving Licence Renewal

    All our branches have online systems that connect directly to the DVLA to issue your new driving licence digitally. We’ll take the photo and do all the paperwork for you. The service takes about 5-7 minutes to complete. You must bring your existing photocard licence and ideally the renewal letter. If you have lost your licence we can usually still do the application. If you are applying for a provision or first licence we can provide D1 forms for you to complete by hand.

    You are legally required to renew your photo driving licence at least every 10 years (the expiry date is printed on point 4b of your photocard driving licence). If you do not have an up-to-date licence, you will have difficulties getting car insurance or hiring cars in the UK or abroad. Driving without a valid driving licence, carries a £1,000 fine or your entitlement to drive withdrawn. If you’re driving abroad you may also need an International Driving Permit (IDP)
