          The DVLA driving licence form! Approximately three hours spent trying to work it out and fill it in, even with the instruction pamphlet. It eventually needed a lengthy phone call to themselves and they couldn't answer all the questions either without making their own internal enquiries, grrrr! :mad: I still don't know whether it's right or wrong so I'll post it and wait for the backlash. :doh:

              Do they have cameras for taking official type photos up there in the wilds of the north? :snorky: you'll need one for the licence. ;)

                I'm a bit to long in the tooth for that now @Jiffy. :biggrin:

                Mr S and I have to change our licences, not only because of change of address but because we've moved back to the mainland and have Manx licences - and that's been the stumbling block! :doh:Although the licence has GBM on it - it's not classed as British.

                Yes they have @shiney and they're not cheap. Although we only need one each, six are printed at a cost of £8 per person. At the first session we were told we could wear glasses (spectacles), not so having checked the form. So, another session without and the total cost was £32.00. On the island we could have had them done free at the Licence Department at the Government offices. We also have to get them and the licence form signed by a local business person or someone in an official capacity. :doh:

                I also have to send my birth and marriage certificates because I don't have a passport to prove who I am, my old licence is not enough. What a farce!

                  Sorry to hear you're being messed around so much. :sad:

                  I still sign passport forms for people but have never been asked to sign a driving licence form. :hate-shocked:

                    Thanks Shiney. :) You wouldn't believe the hassle we've had just to get ourselves established back here on the mainland. Even the international high street bank that we've had our accounts with for 40+ years wouldn't let us transfer our accounts back here from the island. They wanted us to draw our money, close the accounts and open a new account here, so we told them to go whistle and we've opened accounts with a good Scottish Bank! :)

                      A supermarket store manager who thinks that lying is a good form of communication; not once, not twice, not even thrice ... each and every time he spoke! :rrant:
                      I won in the end though :heehee:

                        That reminds me of the old joke about Politicians...........If they pinch their nose, they're not lying, If they stroke their chin, they're not lying, If they rub their forehead they're not lying,......if they open their mouth, ......they're lying.:coffee::snorky:

                          That'll explain why he never pinched his nose, stroked his chin or rubbed his forehead!

                          It also explains why he went looking for headache tablets after I "won" our conversation ;) :roflol:
