Although a licence application must be made at least nine weeks before the chosen operative date, it is possible, in some circumstances, for the Traffic Commissioner to issue an interim licence. Following submission of the GV79, applicants may complete a separate form INT1 to indicate the need for an interim licence and giving reasons why the issue of an interim is being requested. The Traffic Commissioner may grant the interim licence which is subject to a special fee. The interim licence will remain in force until the full application is considered. It is important to remember that the issue of an interim licence is no guarantee a full licence will subsequently be issued.
The form INT1 to apply for an interim licence can be downloaded from here.
The current fee for an interim licence is £68.
