“Our licences prove DVLA fraud claims wrong”

MCN readers have come forward to show their licences are identical to one DVLA said was forged because the vehicle symbols were wrong. Marcus Mee, 38, was charged with fraud after producing photocopies of a licence which appeared to prove DVLA had lost record of his motorcycle entitlement. He is one of scores of riders to complain of the DVLA issuing a...

DVLA

What an absolute farce. I'm very glad people are coming forward to support Marcus Mee. I hope he gets some sort of compensation for what he's had to go through.

DVLA

It's funny how they know they made a cock up with the licences and the dates this happened but yet won't investigate claims for riders. They must have records of where and when we passed our test to check up with. Typical English system, we've got to do all the leg work for them to then say YES YOUR RIGHT. What a load of...

Notarised copies

Anyone worried about sending their licence in can get copies notarised by a solicitor for a minimal fee - less than a tenner.  Just take the original and the copies into any solicitor's office and ask for the copies to be signed off.  I  haven't had to do this for my licence but have done it for a number of other transactions where copies were needed.  If you're worried, and who wouldn't be after all these stories, it's worth a little bit of trouble.

Have MCN got this one wrong?

I was the first one to get ready to write on here in an anti DVLA campaign. I asked my dead to check his licence and he to has this licence with a date of 1978, bingo DVLA have it wrong? unfortunately my dad wreckons the date stated is the date he passed his test and not the date of issue. Can any one else confirm this? are motor cycle news supporting a criminal, do we want these drivers on bikes?

Sorry?

Only a small word but how about an apology to Mr. Mee who has been put through hell because the DVLA got it wrong. All very well walking from a court because of lack of evidence, but the CPS still assume he is guilty until proven innocent.
