You'll need to retake your test and DVLA won't give in on the issue either.

I passed my direct access bike test in 1997 and submitted my pass certificate to the DVLA , however it was returned as I forgot to enclose a cheque for the update on my licence, I then misplaced the test certificate in a house move. Recently I discovered the certificate and submitted it to the DVLA but they are refusing to up date my licence because it was not returned within a 2 year period although they acknowledge that I did pass my test in 1997. I would like to become a motorcycle riding instructor but according to most websites I must hold a licence for at least 3 yrs, How can I overcome this problem. I have the original copy of the pass certificate.
Personally I'd write a few more letters explaining the situation, try if possible to get the name of someone higher up the chain and see if there is anything they can suggest. I'm not sure that anyone on here can offer any advice as its not really a police matter.

I have only ever read about people managing to do it after 2 years by literally going to Swansea and making a fuss about it there and then they are more "flexible"

one of my relatives did their test in '96 and they said it was free (from what they can remember!!)
Me too. No cost to add a entitlement.
