    Knew it was meant to be better. I tend to do it all via post, dont get the time to go down, its all the way in Garretts Green isnt it? I sent my plates transfer off in the post to Birmingham, when I got them back it was actually done at the Wales office, yet I had them back within 4 working days. Impressed!

    the only differnce is the old DVLA office was five minutes walk from my office, so I'd go in and get a ticket, then go back to my office for an hour and walk back, then have less of a wait

    its a 25 minute drive to the new one and it was heaving

    I went to the one in Chester once - in the stupid belief I could complete a 2 minute job during my lunch hour. I had to take an hours lieu time as it took the stated 2 hours. Perhaps its a requirement...


    DVLA office rule 13B. If the waiting time in the office drops below 2 hours all staff must SLOW DOWN. Management may consider closing one of the two open counters until the waiting time hits the approved period.

    And then fine people £55 for spending too long in their waiting area without the appropriate license, £35 if you accept and pay the fine within 20 minutes.
