Yes, they can get access to that information from the DVLA. They don't necessarily see old licences but the DVLA records will reveal this.

There isn't really much more I can say on the point.

They do not always disallow claims for reasons of non disclosure. Sometimes they just ask you to pay the difference. However, there is a risk that they could disallow the claim.

Its difficult to predict what action they would take. I imagine its a high value claim so there is a risk they will be looking for an excuse to avoid paying.

I'm sorry this isn't the answer you wanted but it is the position that you face and I have a duty to inform you truthfully.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
