  2. Hi, I applied for a provisional driving license in October 2016. To this day (Aug 2017) I am still waiting for it. Today DVLA told me it's still in a queue for a doctor to review but would not tell me how many months or years it would take for that review to happen. DVLA refused to tell me the average or approximate time it takes for a medical review to happen. No info whatsoever...just keep waiting... Is this normal? How long does this normally take? Is there a way I could get a provisional license and my lessons as well as the actual driving license abroad and then use that h
  3. Hi there. I'm having some issues trying to find the information I need. Here's my situation: I'm finally in a position where I would like to learn how to drive. Unfortunately, my provisional driver's licence is no longer valid since June of 2017. I'm applying for a new licence on the DVLA website but I am running into trouble. I am being asked to provide a passport (which I don't have and have never had). I need to provide 3 years of address history, but until about a year ago, I was homeless, and there's no option for this on the sign up page I was sofa sur
  4. Hello, This is my first time using this forum so be gentle I paid £34 online for my Provisional Licence as I have no current ID that I am able to use. I received an email on 03/02/17 to say that the payment has been successful but in order for the DVLA to complete my application, I have to send them some forms of ID such as Birth Certificate, bank letters etc. My problem is, it has been nearly one month and I have not received the letter/form which they have said I would get to be able to send a passport sized photo of myself and the forms of ID that they have requested
  5. Hi, I made a complaint to GoSkippy yesterday as they cancelled mine and my partners joint insurance because we got the date wrong for when his provisional licence started; they gave 7 days notice of cancellation. The mistake was unintentional but GoSkippy refused to let me amend the policy and pay extra instead opting to cancel the policy leaving me having to answer that dreaded question every time I apply for insurance from now on; they of course managed to charge me silly money for the cancellation as they said the mistake was ours and also told me I could reapply for a policy after
  6. Hi, I've ordered a provisional license about 2 weeks ago and within the next 3-4 days after ordering it, I've received a letter in order to send back my passport, photo, signature etc. So I've sent it back on Friday and they've received it on Saturday morning (from what the royal mail tracking thingy says) and just wondering if anyone knows how long it would take them to send back my passport since I need it ASAP to get other things done as well. Also, if anyone has also sent their passport for them to verify, did you include an empty envelope for the special 1 day delivery with your address o
  7. I am a resident of UK. I came to UK from India 2 years ago in April 2012 on work Visa. I work for a car manufacturing company in UK. On 14th Dec 2014 I was driving my company car and caught speeding by a speed camera for exceeding 40MPH speed limit(Recorded Speed:51MPH). The police contacted my company to get the driver details as the car was registered on my company and they got my address from my company and sent me the “Notice of Intended Prosecution” I have my Indian Driving License; I got the International Driving Permit during my last visit to

  9. Hi. I have applied for first Provisional Driving licence as I wanted to get 125cc scooter, all I wanted was A1 category and than I was about to do CBT. Today I found it in my letter box and it was issued for category A and B (I take it that has happened because I`m over 30 years old?) Does it means that I can drive any bike right now without supervision? Also do I have to do CBT? I have never done one as this is my first licence, I`m about to get 125cc anyway to learn how to drive and that do an upgrade. If anyone could explain this to me pleas
  10. My Brother in law, has just been caught driving on a provisional license. The circumstances behind it are. He owns a car, in which he practices driving with a qualified driver, it is fully taxed, mot'd and insured. He was asked by a disabled man, whom he has known for a long time if he could take him to a local shop to collect a washing machine as his had broken down, this man had held a driving license for a number of years and to his knowledge still held this license, it was only when they were stopped by the police the man told him that he surrendered his license unde
  11. Hi, Just applied for my daughters first licence and the money I paid was not to DVLA but another web site: https://www.drivinglicence.uk.com/index.php So we paid £50 to have the form printed out ! The DVLA have returned her form asking for another £50. I have spoke to my credit card company asking to do a charge back but they don't hold out much luck. Has anyone managed to get their money back from these people? JJ
  12. I was stopped last year for driving without insurance. This was partially my fault, as the insurance company did not send a notice to when the insurance had expired and it was a matter of ONE day. My licence was revoked under the new drivers act and 6 points were given to me. I received my provisional with 6 points on there and have retaken my theory test and am now waiting to take my practical test. Now I did a dumb thing today and drove the vehicle alone. I was also speeding, doing 54mph in a 30mph zone (about 20 other drivers were also pulled over) by traffic police with radar gun
