I sent both documents with cheque. I was not aware counterpart DL D740 was out of date nor that my DL isuue 70 was imcomplete!!
No licence issued 23.08.12 to 28/10/15 Personal details correct and references are same as quoted on Form D740.(I am over 70 - DOB 29/10/36) and I know it is renewable every 3 years.
There is nothing within the info on reverse of form D740 which indicates it is a renewable document. I have examined son's document and it is the same . Phone numbers on reverse no longer in use. I have had no changes to address or personal details in over 30 years; Can fiond no reference to this form under DVLC.
