They merely say that under the Act they quote they have to cancel my licence clearly ignoring the fact that the Act relates to people who have passed their test recently...they must be aware from the details of my licence that I passed the test in 1951.
I think there is some muddled thinking going on in Port Talbot!
I think ,for some unknown reason, they are under the impression that I only recently passed my test and they seem to assume I have had two speeding offences in the first two years after passing my test. If this were so they would be justified in cancelling my licence. I have been caught speeding twice within the past two years but the first offence was wiped out by the police and no points were added to my licence. So the only points on my licence must derive from the second offence. They do not say how many points they are attributing to the second offence merely stating that I have 6 or more points on my licence which they say justifies them in asking the DVLA to cancel my licence.
I have told them my age(88) and the approximate date when I passed my test (1951) but, so far, no response.
Thank you very much for your help. I am glad to hear there is a way of appealing the decision if they stick to their misguided guns !!
