I have just phoned the DVLA about the progress of registration for my D3. I sent everything off with 'Post office next day guaranteed delivery' and it is recorded signed for on 18th... However, the person I've just spoken to says she can't find any record of my application even though she confirmed through my tracking number it was signed for with them. It's not on any of their systems.

Apparently, I now have to wait up to 4 weeks for it to be looked into (not registered but 'looked into')... maddeningly frustrating!

Just wondering if anyone has encountered the same, and what the outcome was?

I wouldn't worry too much just yet. DVLA are a law unto themselves and just because the person you spoke to cannot find it doesnt necessarily mean that it hasn't arrived. I have heard this happen before, then three or four days later the V5 arrives on the doorstep....

Give it a little longer, and keep your fingers crossed.....

Well, as intimated here it was a case of being patient as I am now on the road smile. It's interesting to discover from DVLA, that whilst completely sensible, sending the application pack by recorded delivery generally adds a week onto the process, as it's makes for a slower transition through their systems... Safer but slower it seems (perhaps how I should be riding).

Thanks to all
