- Anyone from DVLA (driving licence experience) in the house?!
I need to get an endorsement removed from my licence so I have a “clean” licence. Here’s the theoretical scenario (with dates changed for ease):
1st August endorsement expires so can send off licence
10th August leave the country to go and work in Europe for at least 6 months
21st August (theoretical time DVLA will return licence with points removed)
Therefore I’ve got a few questions apart from the obvious. Firstly could I send my licence in a couple of weeks before the 1st August so they can reissue it on the 1st? Secondly is there an express service (like the passport service) where I could visit the DVLA etc… to speed things up. Thirdly what would happen if I drove in Europe without a licence and got stopped and said it was with the DVLA etc…
I’m sure this is a reasonably unusual question but I am likely take a role involving driving in Europe (France) so have a clean counterpart without having to explain an endorsement would just make life a whole lot easier (yes I know it has expired etc…)
Thanks all.Posted 8 years agoxc-manMember
The endorsement will have def expired by the date, the reason for asking is that it's an endorsement that stays on for 11 years from conviction, they are a bit harder to explain away… (no excuse but was over the limit the morning after a few ales the night before – note be very aware of long it takes for booze to leave your system if driving the next morning).Posted 8 years ago
