Extend the 12-month period drivers can use non-GB driving licences
The Government should extend the 12-month grace period allowing UK residents to drive on a non-GB licence, due to Covid-19.
During this 12-month period new UK residents are expected to apply for a provisional driving licence, pass theory test and a driving test. Due to Covid-19 provisional driving licences have been delayed, theory and driving tests have been cancelled or delayed. Even if the DVLA returns to operate as normal there's a long backlog. New UK residents may not be able to drive or perform many critical tasks involving driving such as drive for a living, commuting, attending health treatments, etc.
