I first came to the UK in August 2019. But in March 2020 I changed my visa category and had to leave the UK and apply for it. So question is will my 1 year allowed time to drive restart from March 2020 to March 2021?
You can drive in Great Britain on your full, valid driving licence for 12 months from when you became residentSKJ1984 wrote: ↑Thu Jul 30, 2020 3:20 pmIf you have went out of the country and changed your visa, then your overseas license new 1 year period starts from the new visa date. I have validated this with insurance companies and DVLA. Several ICT Short Term to Long Term visa change use this to drive in their first year of long term visa.
That seems to be a big risk you have taken, just for the sake of not learning to pass the UK driving test.
