    How long does it take to get DVLA medical results?

    Following a DVLA medical, it usually takes around 15 days before you can expect to receive the results. This could extend to 90 days if you are asked to provide further information. It also takes a further week for blood test samples to be analysed.

    How long does it take to get my driving licence back after the medical?

    Your driving licence will be returned to you within three weeks after your application documents have been accepted by the DVLA.
