Hi, I have been in and out of the country for a few years. I am back and want to register my business and do a self assessment. Everytime I click the passport and drivers licence option when registering it keeps saying there is an issue with it. My licence was renewed around 4 years ago, I am not sure why this is happening. There is a section where it asks for 3 letters but on my licence it has 4 'DVLA' and it keeps rejecting any attempt at signing up. I wan't to do things by the books and properly, but its impossible to even register and get past this stage.

I found it easier and less stressful to select the "I don't have these items" link in blue below the questions and get a pin sent in the post
