Yes you can. If you dealyed renewing it, there is a fine of £1000 - I know someone who has been fined! If you are stopped by the police it is accepted that these kind of things happen and you would just have to produce it when it is returned from the DVLA. They don't take very long to renew it in my experience - I kept a photocopy before I sent my off - but luckily it was not needed!!

You are supposed to carry it with you but in those circumstances you could produce a photocopy and then you may be require to show the 'real' one within 14 days at a police station. The police can look you up on the PNC to check the details if they want to.

Keep photocopies, and make sure that you have record from the post office that the item was sent. Many go missing in the post, and you don't want the hassle of trying to persuade someone of what you actually did.

Why not do it on line?

I've just done mine

When the new one arrives you send the old one back.
