But what is it though, this being the first I have heard or read about it.
It appears that the council want to play by the rules, but won't issue a 3 year drivers badge
Nowt to do with 3 Year licences...they are still just the same, it's only when you need to renew yours at the end of a 3 year period like we normally do, they'll still be 3 years and this is a one off proof that we British ain't Illegals in our own country....mean time the country floods with illegals and we Brits get the UK inquisition at our door.
It's a waste of time, All my family history, NI number and place of Birth is all shown on my Police Enhanced Procedure Check (CRB) and on my PVG (protection of Vulnerable Groups) certificate and on my DVLA drivers license...for Feck sake can't they bloody see that???
My advice to anyone who is not happy to provide the details required should simply not provide them. Go and get another job where you are not required to provide the information. However you may find that you may need the information for any job, anywhere before long.
