I have had the wrong date of birth on my driving license for

Resolved Question:

I have had the wrong date of birth on my driving license for 30yrs. The month is wrong, 6 instead of 8, the day and year are correct. I was a bit impatient when i was 15 for my provisional driving license to ride a moped, and so put an earlier date of birth by 2 months. I have had several speeding fines in the last 20 yrs and have declared my correct date of birth. All other personal documents have correct date of birth ie passport etc. I considered just applying for a new licence with correct date of birth on line. What is the best way to correct this situation?

Is your insurance in the correct date of birth?

You should sort it out really. If your date of birth is wrong then your driver's number may well be wrong as its worked out on the date of your birth.

Obviously its not the DVLA's fault though that this has happened which does carry risk.

But if you send your birth certificate in with the notification then there should be no difficulty with accepting the correct date of birth.

If its just 2 months out and this was over 30 years ago then its quite unlikely that they would even notice the impact this would have on your entitlement to drive.

I'm happy to discuss this but please remember to click on accept.

Yes the drivers number is XXXXX

will dvla be able to view old paper application records from 30yrs ago?

What impact could this have on the entitlement to drive?

Is it best toplay country daft and apply for new licence on line stating old one is lost?

Could this be a case for prosecution?
