The key worker address is: Lee Jones, DVLA, Swansea, SA6 7JL. My application took 3 weeks from early June to be scanned on the system and to receive a reply from the DVLA. Good luck.

Cheers mate have you done the medical
No not yet. I'm an HRO, ban ended a couple of years ago and I am on my 3rd annual temporary licence renewal. So I returned the annual renewal forms to the key worker address early June. DVLA wrote to me a few days ago to tell me they are writing to my GP for more info. When they have this, they will probably send me for another medical. I've done a couple of the medicals so far, and they are absolutely fine. Both times my CDT results were 0.5, but DVLA are thorough and will progress through all their checks. If you are not an HRO, your application will most likely progress much quicker. But certainly there are good posts on here where people have pushed to get their medicals booked despite DVLA resistance. I sent all the questionnaires and licence photo renewal in one envelope special delivery and our brilliant postal service had it delivered and signed for by 9am the next morning! Phoned DVLA regularly to check progress, It then took 2 weeks to be scanned on the system and another week to write back to me. But I think each case can vary some.
