    Hi, I don't know if those who get data cards need the vin number, I'm sure it's been done from just a licence plate before. If so, can someone help me with the card for BJ12 HKF? Thanks.

    Driving Licence codes

    I've today received my invitation to renew my Driving Licence as I approach age 70, but (possibly due to advanced age) I'm a bit confused as to whether I need categories C1 - medium size vehicle, and D1 - minibus. I need to be able to drive a Transit type LWB occasionally, and DVLA quote "a...

    Dead Licence Plate Bulbs

    So, I decided to replace the licence plate bulbs on my CL since they'd become pretty dim. After replacing both of them, neither will illuminate and I've got warnings on the dash whenever the lights come on. I've tried different bulbs with no luck and, since the fuse for them is apparently...

    DVLA revoked Driving Licence

    I wonder if anyone can give me a bit of advice to offer to a friend and her family. Let me give you a bit of a back story, though I won't go into detail.

    DVLA licence check code now valid for 21 days

    I hadn't noticed this until going online to obtain a code. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/driving-licence-check-code-extended-from-72-hours-to-21-days The original 3 day limit was not well thought out. 21 days is rather more practical. But I'd prefer to see them simply provide a means of...

    Having a discussion last evening over a few beers regarding the Which Report on actual consumption figures compared to manufacturers claimed figures.
