Several weeks ago, I sent my driving licence and the paper counterpart forms off to the DVLA to get the address updated to reflect our new residence. Neil was slightly more on the ball –¬†in this household, it’s an ADD crapshoot as to when things get done – and sent his off more than a week before mine. His returned corrected and mine went out soon after.

I phoned the DVLA in Swansea right away and have been instructed to hand write a little letter about the error and to send both my licence and counterpart form in again. Fortunately, there is no charge for updating you address, or apparently, birthplace.
