Well it's been over a month now and I am wondering if any of our younger riders that took there "A" restricted licence before the 19th Jan 2013. Has anyone's restriction elapsed/ended after 19th of Jan(within the last 5 weeks). Have sent your licence to the DVLA to have the restriction removed? I know you don't have to send it it by the way, but you know how the police can get confused, and having the 25kw writing removed makes it easier
I am asking because my son has one year left on his restriction before he can ride any size bike. And right up there among all the idiots in this country's red tape system is the DVLA. It would be interesting to hear from any one who has sent there pre 2013 licences in for the restriction removal. Some ones got to be the first to do it, and it's my betting that the idiots at the DVLA will get all confused with the old 33hp restriction licences and the new overly complex licence system.
It would be nice to know that they will get this right, but I won't hold my breath. No doubt the DVLA will get all confused with its self.......like they do. I am wondering what problems will they/have they caused the bikers who sent there licences in for a simple removal.
Any one guys? Or maybe it's a little to early and I should ask again in a couple more months. Thanks guys.
