What would you like to know about this?
Well, there could be lots of reasons.
Only the DVLA can tell you that.
It could be that you didn't renew after ten years.
It could be that you didn't send your licence in for points to be added at some point.
It could be an error of the DVLA. It wouldn't be the first time.
From what you say, it is probably that incident. It is not likely that you were revoked in court but if you didn't send your licence in then it would have been revoked by the DVLA.
You just have to apply for reissue which is very easy to do but there is a cost involved. It is fairly small.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No, you wouldn't have done. It is automatic.
You can just apply using the D1 forms here
at any post office. They probably have specified forms now but I always use the generalised ones.
