Hi jo c yes i have a new licence but dvla have lost my records with my entitlements ie like towing and 7.500 tons they say i must find records from when my first passd my test it was a red book licennce
Expert:  Jo C. replied 6 months ago.

Well, it is quite unlikely that you could do that now.

But they must have the green licence records. They did add them all to computers in the 1970s so it should have come to attention before now.

They have lost 3 million records in recent years so you may have an argument.

You can complain to the information commissioner and also to your MP as this is becoming quite widespread and the DVLA can find information when it suits them.

Can I clarify anything for you?
