I'm 70 soon, how can I renew my licence when the DVLA haven't sent me an application?

My 70th birthday is coming up in June but I've not received an application form from DVLA to renew my licence. I also want to renew my C1 and D1 categories. How am I supposed to do this?

The DVLA is no longer taking paper applications due to coronavirus. Online forms are available for renewals (www.gov.uk/renew-driving-licence-at-70). However, many drivers are reporting similar issues and delays with renewals from DVLA.

We've reported various issues that drivers, mostly those over 70-years-old, are having with licence renewals at the moment. However, the DVLA is yet to respond to our request for comment: www.honestjohn.co.uk/news/coronavirus/2020-04/coro.../

I sent the V5 slip to the DVLA as soon as I won my car at a local auction, but it has now been over six weeks and nothing has arrived. I have tried ringing and emailing repeatedly to no avail. I appreciate...
Are there delays from the DVLA with renewing driving licences?
I posted the renewal of my over-70 driving license on 23 March 2020 and still not received it back on 20 May 2020.
