Re: Calling the horticulturalists

I've been trying to get a better picture but the Sun is that bright the camera shuts down the iris.

I've been working on the garage roof ripped all the old felt off and replaced it with box section galvanized sheet. Still quite a bit to do yet but getting there.

This one is similar, I’m sure you will agree:

Re: DVLA nearly over 70 renewing licence

Thanks again guys

It's the possible loss of the C1 and D1 that I'm trying to avoid but they don't half make it hard for you to retain it. I have heard of folk who lost it and the DVLA refused to reinstate it, how true that is I don't know maybe a touch of hearsay.

I'll plod on and see where it gets me :? :? :? .com

Re: DVLA nearly over 70 renewing licence

I really don't know why I'm bothering.
Initial observation looks like form D2 is not a form, could be my error.
D4 is a medical examination for a for HGV licence as was.

I thought it would be quicker to download the forms myself

This is the most spherical testicular obfuscation I have ever come across. ( insert head in hands emoticon)

Re: Headphones for watching television

on my pc I've used a plug in wireless transmitter that connects to the headphones.

Curries PC world might have a solution. I've tried google with "connecting wireless headphones to non bluetooth TV" and came up with

Re: DVLA nearly over 70 renewing licence

thirdcrank wrote: 17 May 2021, 11:51am I should by now be on my third over-70 licence as I am 76. As I still had only a paper driving licence when I was 69 I received a paper renewal application form by post automatically and that went well. The only slight glitches were a personal one - struggling to keep my signature within the box - and then getting a kosher mugshot from Max Spielman. The regular shop manager was off and the relief made a big song-and-dance about the camera not being where it should be.

The first renewal again went well. I received the paper application automatically by post and it said the existing photo would be ok. I cut a little paper template for the signature box and bingo.

During lockdown, the DVLA announced that all driving licences would be extended by eleven months and I've not received an application form. The stuff online said renewals could be done at any time online but that requires the applicant to be in the system with a suitable passport.
It's been quite a journey this morning I checked several weeks ago and the web site intimated that I would get a letter 90 days before my current licence expires. 90 days came and went and still nothing.
It does say in the depths of the website you can use other things instead of the passport. letters from the pension people with your NI number etc, but I wait with baited breath to see what drops on the door mat. meantime I'm off to the local supermarket to get a mug shot .

Re: DVLA nearly over 70 renewing licence

after another trawl through .gov It became apparent that the easy way was to exchange the paper licence for a photocard one and then go for the over 70's road.

WHAT A PERFORMANCE

so as it stands at the moment paper to photocard applied for £20.00 they send the application docs out, takes about a week, then send back with picture of me, and who knows they might want one of the cat!!!!!at least I've got till 20 July in the meantime I can get my mug shot.

time to get the bike out :oops: second time in 12 months :oops:

I'll keep you informed as how it goes

Cheers Malc
