    Watchdog on the BBC are covering the DVLA cock ups with missing entitlements
    If you missed it watch again on your PC. Very interesting.

    I sent mine off last month as the photo had expired. I never photo copied it but it did come back with my bike entitlement still on it. Phew :)

    does any1 no if u can ride over/down there wherever it is and get ur licence sorted while u wait, with photo-copies in hand so u can show them b4 u hand it over that ur m'cycle entitlement is there..and it better stay there!
     
  4. I applied for a new licence the other week over the tinternet and got it back within 2 days. So it is quite quick if that's what you're worried about.

    If you'd watch the programme it is quite obvious that the DVLA are stupid
    and at worst arrogant beyond contempt I personally wouldn't trust them
    with my life, for them to make the claim that they are beyond making
    any mistakes is absolutely staggering, I would strongly advise anyone
    sending their licence to them to take steps and copy every last detail
    and get it independently witnessed, over the top you may say but if
    it happens to you I won't say I told you so ;)

    just as a quick add on to this thread, i recently changed address and so replaced my license.
    when it returned it said its only valid till 2010 something to do with having to change your pic now every ten years (cheeky buggars!)it has a little box on the front with sept 10 in it, also if it expires would you be done if stopped by the boys in blue even though on the back it says each endorsement is valid till 2041
    my question is when replacing it do you have to pay the full ammount again, it didnt say in the info that came with it, is this another stealth tax slipped in?
    dvla is very shady as it doesnt explain in the leaflet sent out with the license
