I have a medical condition and am waiting for the DVLA to renew my driving licence. Can I continue to drive while I’m waiting?

Due to coronavirus (Covid-19), there are likely to be significant delays with the DVLA receiving the information they need to make a decision on renewing licences. Therefore, providing you have a current driving licence and you have not been told by your optometrist or doctor that you should not drive, you can continue to drive while DVLA is considering your application. However, if your condition worsens you must inform the DVLA as soon as possible.

Please see The College of Optometrists website for further coronavirus (Covid-19) related information.

General information on the coronavirus can be found on the gov.uk coronavirus (Covid-19) web pages, along with additional information for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
