This story started two months ago, all I wanted to do was re-apply for my driving license. Now you would think this would be simple, "Oh !! No it ain't", ( I gave up my license over 15 years ago, after two major heart attacks and being diagnosed with unstable angina. I dually got a D10 form from the post office along with a £65 postal order, filled in the form , sent it off and thought no more about it. after a month of not hearing any thing I rang DVLA Swansea, they had no record of me ever having had a license,odd I said at the time, but they said they would keep looking, eventually received a letter asking where and when I had taken my test, and was it a book or paper license, filled in this questionnaire and posted it back. gave it another week and rang again. Still no joy, we are now searching our archives say the man on the other end of the phone, OK! says me will try again next week. In the mean time another questionnaire arrives through the door, this time they wanted all my addresses since I got my provisional, ( AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!!!!!!!) They're having a laugh aren't they, I've lived all over this country since I was 17, and being a Merchant Seaman, I was away more than I was at home.
So there's me looking up old addresses, Post codes, took all flaming day , but I got there in the end. Posted this lot off and left it until last week, rang up again, more or less got the same answer, we are still looking. B****r me if I don't get another letter asking If I'd lived at an address in Lancaster which as it happens is my Uncle Vic's, but his son is called Harry, my cousin, Ok! it's a reasonable mistake to make for Joe Public, considering my name is Howard and we both carry the same middle and surname but different DOB's. NOT a Government body though. Now I'm getting sorely you know whated off.
Rang again today, Guess what, I had been driving for 40 years illegally because nobody told me I had to renew my license every three years up until 1978 when life time licenses were introduced, Oooops!!!
#The upshot of all this culminates in, I am now getting a Bleeding Provisional license again and have to re- take my test. Now this should be hilarious. I'm already half blind, half deaf and totally nutty, so I'm booking a bed in the local Nut House just case. Me, Nin or the Driving Instructor need it LOL. 'Cos I got I got a feeling in me water one of us will.
