Applying online is the quickest way to get a replacement driving licence. Once you have completed the online application process, you should expect to receive your new replacement licence in the post within 2 weeks.
Your Driving Licence Photocard
If your photocard licence is due to expire within two years or you have had a UK passport issued in the last five years, the DVLA will use an electronic copy of your passport photo on your replacement licence.
If you do not have a suitable passport photo, you will need to complete a D1 Form and submit a new photograph in the post.
