Ten years ago I passed my theory, CBT and test to ride a 125. This I have done with MOT, service and insurance each and every year for decade.
Last month I decided to upgrade my bike [bigger engine]. Long story short, I only have a provisional, not a full licence. Why? Because in the 2 years grace you where given to apply for your full licence, in my case 2003 - 2005, I didn't, I simply missed it.My error [it seems]
Now the DVLA are saying I need to start all over again. Can't even ride my bike i've had for 10 years until I pass a new CBT!
Made an appeal to the DVLA, no joy. With the new legislation in order to ride anything above a 125 I will need to fork out near enough 1000 pounds, CBT, tests Module 1/2 etc.
So has anyone made the same "mistake" and appealed with success to the DVLA, or any other ideas?
I don't have 1000 pounds to ride i.e. a 250 bike, even to get me legal on my 125 will be hundrerds of pounds.
Advice, help appreciated...
