d1 form dvla - FAQ

Which form should I fill in if I need to change my driving licence from an EU to a UK one, D1 or D9 form?
If you currently have a Cat C or C+E or D D1. D1 +E or a D + E or. Lorries and buses you will need to fill in a D9. For all other licences you need a D1. Also to drive C and D vehicles professionally you should be in possession of a Blue Drivers card to show you have current CPC training.
How can I lookup for my UK driving licence without going to DVLA?
I don’t think you can. If you’ve lost it, you need to declare it lost and ask for a replacement. This is important because someone could use your licence fraudulently to steal your identity. You’d then have a whole load of horrible work proving that you weren’t responsible for things done in your name.Go to Welcome to GOV.UK and search "driving licence". That should return the maximum number of results and looking through them you may find what you need.If you need a new licence, it’s really easy to do online, particularly if you have a valid passport. My ten years are up, so I’ve just applied for a new photocard licence to last another ten years. OK, it may be harder if you’ve lost your licence but I think DVLA are doing everything to make keeping your licence valid easy.
Do I need a (DVLA) V5C document to sell a car to someone who wants to export it out of the UK?
Yes you need it.First, most people won’t buy a car without the V5. However the V5 isn’t proof of ownership and a simple handwritten receipt is legally fine to transfer ownership.However, you need to send off your bit of the V5 in order that you don’t get all the paring and speeding fines, etc.. The police will have very little sympathy if you say “It wasn’t me, I sold the car” and haven’t sent off your bit of the form. You will end up wearing any points and/or fines.Apply for a replacement form before you sell the car.
How do I go about importing an American Van to the UK? Is it easy to switch it to DVLA for road use?
Pretty simple. You go through the physical act of shipping it to the UK. You may have to pay “£x” import duty - depends on the value of the vehicle. You then advise the DVLA that you wish to register an imported vehicle - there may be “£x” excise duty payable. Before you can use the vehicle on the road, it will have to pass an MOT test: this will be done on the vin number if you’ve not been allocated a registration number (likely a “Q” plate). Details like complying with UK regulations regarding lights and emissions will need to be attended to.
My lorry/bus driving licence was suspended 3 years ago due to brain injury. Now the prognosis is good, so I just want to find out if the consultant is responsible to send an update over to the DVLA (UK)?
I’ll quote DVLA letter dated 3 years ago: “We have received medical information as part of this enquiry that tells us you have a liability to seizures having suffered a traumatic brain injury, so you must not drive. We would only be able to consider a re-application from you for a Group 2 (lorry or bus) driving licence when you can provide medical evidence from your doctor/consultant to confirm that your liability to seizures has reduced to 2% per annum or less. You will then be subject to satisfactory medical reports”.So recently I have had a follow-up appointment (after an MRI which came back OK) with Neurologist and everything turned out OK and prognosis was good so I was greenlighted to get my lorry/bus driving licence back. I contacted DVLA and been told that it was a doctor himself who needs to send a prognosis letter over to DVLA, yet a doctor claimed it is not his responsibility. I got confused here but I believe that doctor provided misleading information in this case. Any advice here please? Thank you.
Can you write to the DVLA in the UK and state that they are not allowed to give out my details to anyone without either a court order or my written authorisation?
Sure: it’s a free country, do what you like. However, your letter would be an incorrect statement of the law, and they would either ignore it, or send you a polite form letter back with a copy of their personal information charter.Check out The Road Vehicles (Registration and Licensing) Regulations 2021. regulation 27.The Road Vehicles (Registration and Licensing) Regulations 2002The Secretary of State for Transport, via the DVLA, is empowered to reveal the information in the vehicle register to several different bodies, including the police, Customs and Excise, local authorities, and:any person who can show to the satisfaction of the Secretary of State that he has reasonable cause for wanting the particulars to be made available to himThat would include private parking companies, or even private litigants.‘Reasonable cause‡ is defined by the DVLA as situations relating to:motoring incidents with driver or keeper liability. These can include matters of road safety, events occurring as a consequence of vehicle use, the enforcement of road traffic legislation and the collection of taxes.They give several examples, and a motorist parking on private land in breach of the owner’s terms and conditions is specifically listed as a case where it would be considered reasonable to give out the owner details of the vehicle in question.https://assets.publishing.servic...Tl,dr: you can’t use data protection legislation to get away with either crimes or civil torts.
What time period do you have in which to do the theoretical exam for the DVLA in the UK?
It’s been a while since I took the driving theory test, but I think I had 30 minutes to complete it. I finished it in a little over 4 minutes.However the test is now longer, and includes a hazard perception section comprising video clips, so that obviously takes longer. I believe it lasts 45 mins. It’s now computerised, with touchscreens for answering, and you get your result before you leave the testing centre (paper-based when I did it, and the result was posted out to me).I believe the pass result allows you to complete the practical test within two years, which is unchanged from my time.
