I discovered that my Italian drivers license has expired.
I need to renew it but I'm an expat in the UK:
- The Italian Driver License agency won't touch my license with a 10-foot-pole
- The English DVLA says they can give me a UK license (yay!) but
- it will take 4 weeks and
- they want the only copy of my current license and of my passport
I can't really stay without my passport for that long (as I travel much) so here's my question: is there a faster (paid for) application or an application that does not require physically sending my passport?
The only other alternative I can think of is also dire: apply for an Italian ID card (1-3 months), and then send that... but this would leave me unable to drive for maybe 4 months!
