Also many of the new field hospital in wales and the south of England it would benefit my employer to get me back on the road rather than expecting other people to get me to sites

Hello i am a criminal law solicitor I will assist you.

Currently DVLA have been working reduced hours and reduced staff, many applications have been delayed because of this and covid19.

Very important, DONOT drive until you have received your licence. As frustrating as that maybe , until it has been returned to you, you are classified as having no licence and if stopped by police could be charged for that.

Thank you for your help as not knowing all the answers could have got me in to more trouble just if they could have let me know if they had even received the application may have helped

Your very welcome.

it is an issue that does catch people out. Once the ban has ended they think they can start driving again. But until they have received their licence back, they would be driving otherwise in accordance with a licence, and could end up back in court.

Good luck.
