You cannot currently apply for a new provisional licence because of coronavirus (COVID-19).
You can still apply if you’re classed as a critical worker - for example, a doctor, nurse or school teacher.
If you’re a critical worker and need a provisional licence urgently, contact DVLA to check if you’re eligible and how to apply.
If you’ve already applied for a new provisional licence, you do not need to contact DVLA. Your application may take longer than usual because of coronavirus.
