    Best thing to do is email DVLA with your full details including driving licence number if you can remember it.

    You also need to keep your D1 qualification to drive over 3500kg !!!

    That seems to be an inordinate amount of time to wait-I would tend to ring DVLA and find out what's happening.
    Have you had a medical and applied to retain all classes on your current license ? As you know,you will have to renew license every 3 yrs from now on-I am 75 and have never had to wait that long,more like 10 days.

    Yes, a telephone call is in order, although they do say apply three months in advance. If you have a local regional office, you could enlist their help. I have always found the local office very helpful.

    Mine was four months in the process, including the medical boys writing to my GP for clarification on a point, but all was well in the end.

    With luck, it will be in the post, and all will be well.

    If you have a local, try them first.

    Good luck:thumb:
