Full licence for a car does not do away with the need to do the CBT.

Thanks very much price
You were always helpful and always kindly answered to my post
From day 1 I had conviction until went to course (DD) and the applying for the licence again etc…
it was very stressful journey and all was my own mistake
I should not do that silly thing in first place
Lesson is learned
 
Whilst Dvla are processing the application, can you still drive once your ban has been lifted or do you have to wait until you physically have the license. I sent mine on 30th June and my disqualification ends on 4th August so I don't know if I can drive or not. I was not high risk and no other disqualifications

You cannot drive until your new licence has been issued. (You can check this on the DVLA website) once you see it has been issued and the date on it, you can drive from that date, even if your licence has not yet arrived)
 
Thanks for the quick response. I have just done the checker, where can I see if it has been issued? It is just saying I am still disqualified?

So it hasn’t been issued.
When it has, it will show a “valid from” dateand your licence number will have a one higher sequence number at the end than was there before.

Hey guys,
just received my licence.

can i get a quote to see how much my insurance will be with a car 1.2 L
By the way, i don't have car at the moment.

thanks
 
I still haven't recieved mine - I sent it on the 17th June and now the ban is over it is frustrating that I can't drive again.

Is it worth sending a new application do you think. I just want this to be over now, and get my license back.

Go on moneysupermarket.com each day for a week and get quotes but avoid insuring you car between Friday 6pm and Monday 8am as it is more expensive then
