If your TfL PHVL will expire on or between 23 March - 30 June 2020
We previously communicated how we would be processing PHVL extensions for expired licences. TfL have since provided further guidance, announcing that eligible drivers will receive extended PHVLs directly.
Previously we said that we would automatically extend expired MOT’s and PHVLs on our system; however this will no longer be the case for your PHVL. Automatic extensions to vehicle licences will be reversed this week, and you will need to upload your extension via the driver portal as soon as you can.
If TfL are yet to be in touch or have not sent you an extended PHVL, be sure to call their vehicle contact centre on 0343 222 4444.
If your TfL PHVL expired before 23 March 2020
TfL licence renewal centres have closed until further notice. If you had an appointment then TfL will contact you directly to tell you what to do. Stay up to date with changes to TfL vehicle centres here.
If your TfL PHVL expires after 30 June 2020
Any PHVL expiring after 30 June is not affected by this change. You should renew your licence as normal.
Licencing a vehicle for the first time
