MCN Campaign: End the lost licences fiasco now

MCN is demanding the DVLA end the lost bike licences fiasco by cutting corners off old licences and returning them to riders when replacements are issued.   Hundreds of motorcyclists tell of sending their licence to the DVLA to change details such as address only to get a replacement with entitlement to ride bikes missing. When they notify the DVLA they are...

Problem solved - i think!

I just spoke to DVLA and think i found a way around it - don't send your old licence back at all! Report it lost instead - that way if they cock up you have the old licence (that you luckily just found!!! ;-)) as proof. The fee for a lost licence is the same as for the 10 year photo renewal so thats what i'm going to do.

lost licences

Hundreds lost?  Don't suppose this could be a ploy to force a retest on older bikers!

DVLA muppets

It's not just bikes. I know a bloke who runs a skip firm who lost his HGV entitlement after sending his licence in and guess what DVLA had no record he'd passed so he had to re-take his test. It's poor that that they can't accept proof if you have it and re-instate the entitlements

My licence...

... is hopefully managing to fight its way through the house of horrors in one piece at the moment (renewal).  Mine's with the DVLNI though... don't know if they're any better or worse or just the same.  I have copies of everything before I sent it off though :)  ... Anyway... gonna go sign that petition, cuz I'd be well p*ssed if they cocked it up.
