Renewed Licence and Fraud Prevention
To avoid potential driving licence impersonation, you must destroy your old licence after receiving your renewed one. With your new licence, you can drive legally as long as you adhere to all medical and vision requirements.
UK Residents and Postal Applications
A UK driving licence can only be obtained by UK citizens. If you need to renew your licence, you can do so via the postal service or online. The latter requires you to send the DVLA your filled-out form and any necessary documentation.
