Not your fault Cyprus at all. Dont blame yourself.

You have done well to come through. Try not to forget that.

Take care. X Chris

Hi Cyprus

I presumr the dvlc have done this. Did you notify them. If so I would advise you to tell them nothing in future. I remember this happening to someone else
I understand your annoyance. It is their inept way of handling things. You're doing great.
Take care

Public transport is character building (just joking). I'm really used to buses but I know that for those who don't use public transport it can be quite unpleasant at first.

That's good the DVLC aren't involved. As I said, tell them nothing. Getting them to renew your license would be difficult.

Take care
