Just to clarify, you are saying that you have never even been pulled over (in your life?) but your license has been suspended?

If that is truly the case, it sounds like a clerical error to me. These things do happen.

Others here will know the process better than I do, but I would suspect there must be some contact information in this letter, you should contact them to get more details.

Another avenue to look at: have you ever been ordered by a court to pay child support? and if so, is it current?
Only asking as the courts can order the FRO (Family Responsibility Office) to enforce those payments and one of their favorite ways to punish people they deem are in default is to have your driver's license suspended.
Now - they do have to summon you to court to achieve this, but if the address they have is not current, you may never know and it will just happen in the background.
