The DVLA have announced that photocard driving licenses that expire between 1 February and 31 August 2020 will be extended for 7 months from the expiry date.
The extension will be automatic and drivers will be sent a reminder before their 7-month extension ends.
The extension applies only to the photocard renewal date. It does not apply where a driver’s entitlement to drive is due to expire – in those circumstances they will need to renew their entitlement in the normal way.
