No it is the case, in my case - I can understand the questions i get asked by the words that they use!That's not the case. The question is normally phrased along the lines of "How long have you held a full license", not how long you've held your current one. It's not an issue.
Thank you, this is helpful, I was not given this info but I didnt specifically ask for that assuranceI know someone who did this a number of years ago. It was very easy to sort out. From memory, NDLS issued a letter to the effect that a valid UK license was held for x number of years. This was acceptable to the insurance company.
