what should i do?

You just need to inform the DVLA that the information is incorrect.

I presume its an administrative error? If so, this is nothing to worry about. They will just amend it.

People have errors on their driving licence's all the time. Its just a simple matter of correcting it. They do charge a small fee.

They might want sight of your birth certificate but apart from that this is very easy to put right.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.

My license was issued to me in 1990!! and I have only now discovered it!!

It doesn't matter.

Unless you acted dishonestly when you applied its a non issue. Driving licences have incorrect information all the time. Unless you did something like lie about your age in order to get a licence early etc there's no case against you.

There is a duty to inform now that you've noticed but they won't take any action against you.

Phew, thats a relief, thank you so much. So I just contact the dmv and then what... sorry I am very nervous

Yes, just write to them and explain.

Send your licence in for amendment. They will probably charge a fee.
