    you can call and check up 6 weeks after the purchase i believe, it should say on the little green slip you got with it... Ive had em turn up anythin from 1 to 6 weeks from buying anythin longer and its probably been sent to the wrong place or not been sent off by the seller.
    N.b. any opinitons expressed above should be ignored and considered 'ramblings', under no circumstances should they be relied upon...

    There is currently a backlog at the moment with the doovla. I got told this when i had to send my license away to have the photo updated. But as mine was a different dept then i got mine back. The gsi took just under 3 weeks to arrive a few months ago....

    On the plus side my points got taken off when i updated my license so it's clean again. I wasn't paying for them to be taken off

    I have also noticed that it takes ages........unless there is money involved. usually super fast then

    Just under a month for a v5 - Money made £0
    Updating a license, 10 days - Money made £20
    Buying a private plate, 2 days - Money made £250

    The more you give them the quicker the service, and always send everything recorded. They have a habit of losing things which do not require taking your money.
