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 may be able to drive while DVLA is considering your application. However, if your condition worsens you must inform the DVLA as soon as possible.

Further information on renewing your licence including a guidance leaflet called 'Can I drive while my application is with DVLA?' which provides more detailed information can be found on the DVLA Coronavirus webpage.

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