Kerry Woolley is having a two year battle with the DVLA to get her details changed

Hucknall motorist Kerry Woolley says she is being driven to distraction because of a two-year battle with the agency that issues driving licences.

Kerry (38), from Ogle Street, passed her driving test back in 1997.

She’s had an unblemished licence since then but two years ago she says she contacted the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency after she got married.

She changed her name and addresses and informed the DVLA but that’s where she says the problems started.

She claims the DVLA have been getting her name wrong, and has been sending information to previous addresses in Newstead Village and elsewhere in Hucknall.

And she now fears she could face legal trouble.

She said: “I’ve been getting stressed over all of this.

“I’ve been told that if I am stopped by the police, I could be arrested for driving with an out of date licence.

“I’m scared about what’s going to happen and really worry about getting behind the wheel.

“I’ve been using a taxi a lot of times recently. I just want my licence.”

She also claims that the DVLA has said it cannot find in its records any notes of any complaints she has made.

A spokesman for the DVLA said: “While we are not prepared to comment on this specific case, I can confirm that we are dealing with Mrs Woolley directly on this.”
