The following information also applies to renewing an enhanced driver license (EDL).
You must renew your license before it expires or you could face fines.
We’ll take your photo, make sure your signature meets DVLA standards and check your application. You should receive your new photocard from the DVLA in 3 weeks – though if they have to check your medical or personal details, it may take a bit longer.
When all that’s done, we send it straight to the DVLA. Find out if your local branch can sort out driving licence renewal with our Branch Finder. Bring your renewal reminder and your photocard driving licence (if you have it), along with any other items requested in the reminder letter. We take your picture, make sure your application is correct and take your signature using a digital pad. We charge £4.50 to take your picture, check your application and send it off, while the DVLA charges £17 to renew a driving licence. You're risking having your entitlement to drive withdrawn (you will not be allowed to drive) or a fine of £1,000 if your driving licence contains out of date information – so don’t take any chances when it comes to renewing yours.
