    Fcuking DVLA. An organisation so totally fcuking incompetent that it can't issue a driving licence in one piece now needs me to fill in a form for a replacement paper part so that they can replace the replacement with one with my new address.

    They couldn't just print it when they make the new plastic one could they?


    FFS! :frustrated:

    Did you check that when it came back you still had the same groups of Vehicles your allowed to drive?

    Been some occasions couple years ago where people were getting them back and had suddenly lost a vehicle group - great when you get stopped by plod on your motorbike but the group is not on your new licence.....
     
  11. Keep the other three, as one can be used for your passport. One for your new MOD 90s and one for some other id card.... perhaps the national one.

    And of course you always need passport phots for various courses.

  13. Guys, I had a change of address. I posted my card (without paper copy) in the envelope, with a message. (to the manager) saying I need it ASAP. I got it within 5 days (with lots of shouting). New card, new paper part (with old points taken off)………….. done. And it was for free!!!!!
