Not sure it is a security issue unless you think the licence has been taken out and copied in some way.

 

Ring DVLA and ask them if they think it is a problem and whether they would think it necessary to issue a new licence with a new number (but I doubt it)

Sorry Crem but you cannot get a new number because the one you have is your name and (DOB) date of birth as follows the number is

 

NNNNN a b c d e f II XXX XX

 

NNNNN are the first five letters of your surname with numbers appended for short names. The II are the initials of the fornames.

 

The year of birth is 19 a f . the day of the month is d e and the moth is cd if you are male and the month plus 50 if female. The only distinguishing feature is the XXX to allow for more than one person born on the same day with identical names e.g. there are lots of Jones in wales.

 

My reason for replying is that my license ( and one of my freinds) also came back with the envelope slit open I suspect someone is using the license details as the starting point for identity theft.

 

With the 2 million fake V5C's out there before you buy a car from ebay or privately: ask to see the driving license of the Registered keeper and look to see if the age is about right (the police do this at the roadside). You can also ask the DVLA if the DOB of the registered keeper is the same as on the license.

Yep. Quite right.

 

 

The only distinguishing feature is the XXX to allow for more than one person born on the same day with identical names

 

so they can issue 6,084 DL numbers to MEN with the same first 5 digit surnames born on the same day in the same year, and another 6,084 to WOMEN. I think that is more than enough to have one spare to reissue to the OP :)
