In a manic dash across a train station in London, I lost my wallet which included my EU driving license (issued in Portugal). Since I'm a UK resident, I need to replace the lost license with the UK driving licence but the information on how to this is quite vague (I've tried a few of the .gov sites but keep going in a loop).
When I try to replace the license online, the site requires that the last license had a UK License (mine didn't)
If I try to exchange the license, the site tells me it's not necessary until I hit the age of 68
I seem to be stuck in a catch-22 with this.
Can someone advise what needs to be done?
