DRIVING LICENSE IN THE UK
Driving a car helps a lot to feel independent in your movements. And for many Ukrainians who are currently in the UK, the issue of driving licenses is very acute. We will tell you exactly how the procedure of replacing a Ukrainian driving license with a British one takes place.
Ukrainians can continue to drive in the UK without exchanging their driving licence for 12 months after arrival in the UK.
After 12 months they must exchange their licence to continue driving.
STEPS to change your driving licence:
1. Order a D1 form from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) or you can get a D1 form from most post offices.
2. Send the form, the £43 fee and any documents (your BRP) you need (including your driving licence and proof of passing your test in a manual vehicle if needed) to the address on the form.
3. Your driving license usually arrives within 3 weeks.
