The DVLA has recently announced an extension for some motorists.  Motorists whose image expired between February 1 and August 31 will be entitled to an automatic extension for seven months.


I wonder whether the renewed license will be different to the expired one now we are no longer in the EU, the old symbol on the license of the “UK” in a circle of Eurostars will now be out of date too!!

Actually, I Googled the answer before posting and saw this quote from a FOI request.

“Outside the provisions of the FOIA we can advise that the EU flag will be removed
from UK driving licences. It is our current intention to keep the EU branding during the
transition period, which ends on 31 December 2020. The details and data on the
current driving licence are required by the UN Convention on Road Traffic so any
further changes are likely to be minimal. ”

Mine runs out in December 2021, so they may have a more UK-centric license by then!! :yahoo:
