How long before the driving license expiry date should a driver apply for renewal?

Post by Prosk8er »

How long before the driving license expiry date should a driver apply for renewal? How long does it take to get a renewal digi card? Are there still delays or doing it 15 days ahead is enough?

As far as I am aware, online digi card renewals aren't doing too badly but still lots of reports on lengthy waits for licence renewal.

In this case, would it make sense to send for renewal a month ahead or so?

I'd be renewing as early as possible. The downside is "losing" a few weeks of entitlement, but in my mind that's preferable to finding yourself without your licence when you need it!

Licence only appears to be a problem when it requires a medical form with it.

Did the drivers require a medical when sending for renewals?
