Default How do you get a DWA License??

Thought this might be a good sticky for the new forum!!

So does anyone know how to obtain a DWA License? Any terms and conditions? Would be good to get some experiences on here too!

The only rule is...

You have to apply to your local council.

The actual rules, guidelines, costs, and difficulty to obtain vary hugely from county to county.. from places where it is nigh on impossible to get one, where places you can get one for £80 and almost no questions asked.

It's a bit like postcode lottery really.

there was a talk on this in May.
Nerys is compiling a list too.
I'm afraid it didnt cover my council nor Jenna's lol.

Are those fees basically annual? or pemanent.
And do vet inspections happen so many times a year or what?

I'll find out the fees for Barking and Dagenham for you.
