Start off by sending a SAR to the DVLA.

 

Have you ever been prosecuted for any driving offences? If so, when and what was the penalty? This might be a route into tracing your driving licence.

Insurance?

If you ever had one, did you have to send a copy of your licence and/or licence number?

They usually keep records for 6 years, so maybe you could get a copy from them or if they checked the licence record with DVLA, the extract of it.

Another way could be to contact the driving school if they're still in business.

sorry to say this is actually quite common and the DVLA will always say they are right and that is that.

When I renew my licence after 10 years I say I have lost the expired one rather than sending it back so I have proof of entitlement. However, in one caseon here years ago even that wanst good enough

Best solution from ericsbrother.

If new licence turns up messed up, you can always say that you found the old one.

Although the suggestions may help other viewers of the thread, it does not help the OP who has already lost entitlement on their licence.

 

The only way beyond what has been suggested, SAR request etc would be:-

 

a) if you have ever hired a vehicle, especially motorcycle, the hire company may have a photocopy on file.

b) if you have ever been employed in a position where you drove company vehicles, the employer may have a photocopy on file.

c) If you have committed an endorseable offence, DVLA can be directed to that date frame to search records (more specific than a SAR request).

d) If you have had a claim on insurance, the company may have a photocopy on file.

Unfortunately there is no magic bullet to direct you to a successful outcome. Sorry.:ballchain:
