  1. Actually this isn't true. I was caught via a speed camera in 2013 and because the DVLA won't issue me a photo ID licence because they claim I do not meet the ID requirements to be issued with one, (no idea what the hell they want since I have a digital passport and sent that off as proof of ID), I don't have a licence in my hand due to my last licence, (which was paper), being lost in a fire. I paid the £100 fine, 6 months later it was refunded and no further action was taken. So having the entitlement to drive but not a licence in your hand seems to be a way around NIP's and FPN's. And
  2. No it doesn't at all. It highlights the fact my intent on the day was to harm myself and nobody else hence why there was no provocation from me or causation by me for the police to attend. I had no idea I was going to get a visit from them and I'm saying if I had, if I had of been a threat then I would have taken a different course of action to the one that I took. I'm not willing to discuss funding issues with you. That has been discussed above. I didn't assault anyone on the day and that happened a number of days before hand. But I'm not going to discus
  3. So that's why they were pointing HK 9mm carbines at me is it as well as taser? It's also why they were given firearms authority. Firearms authority isn't required for taser use. Yes I agree I was in a position where I could have killed myself, but I'm at a loss at to who I was threatening or how a naked, unarmed man in a bedroom who is heavily sedated poses a threat to anyone but himself. Unless of course you can offer some rational and cogent reason why and how I was a threat to anyone but myself. I say again - I did NOT threaten anyone, not even the police so I don't want
  4. At what point were they alerted and by whom? There is no log of a phone call being made expressing concern for my welfare. So the question remains who alerted them and when did they alert them? The police have no answers to these two crucial questions. The crux of the matter is at the time, based on what they had said I had no obligation at all to interact with the police. I was not told I was going to be arrested, I was not placed under arrest and I was not accused of committing an offense which needed to be investigated. I spoke to the officers via my bedroom window and
  5. Sadly Steampowered I can't move on from this. The police behaved excessively in this situation, I cannot get past the lies or the fact that they cannot and will not admit that it was all a massive over reaction. What's eating away at me is if I had any idea the police were going to come to my house and that this whole situation was to get as out of hand as it did then because of my state of mind at the time I would have forced a situation where they would have killed me. I feel cheated by all of this and it's not right on any level. I did nothing wrong and I was blameless in causing
  6. Actually I believe them when they say they didn't call the police just on the basic fact they had no reason to. Based on what exactly? I know as fact, (mainly because 1) There was no reason for my family to contact the police & 2) I believe them when they say they didn't call the police & 3) There is no police log of any such call being made) they had no reason to suspect what I was doing. I didn't tell anyone and I certainly didn't tell the police when they were at my door. And at what point does a "concern for safety" mean firearms authority is given? It's madness to confr
  7. Fair enough on the solicitors, what about pointing me in the direction of issuing proceedings against the police myself? There seems to be nothing on the web about this unless I'm missing something.
  8. Hi all, I hope someone can help. I'm not going to go into the full details of this but in short last August the police attended my home following, (what they claim), calls from members of my family with concerns for my welfare. I refused to speak to them, or let them in. About 5 hours later fully armed police burst in through the door, (both front and back door was locked), and found me in the bedroom in a heavily sedated state. The crux of this is that in my complaint to the police the findings state that forced entry to my home was used because I was in the process of a
  9. You should have given the insurance the counter part, (as you would with any new keeper), and sent off the V5 yourself. Contact your insurers and get them to deal with this as since they had the V5 it's up to them to complete the paperwork. If you are still showing as the registered keeper then the insurance company hasn't done its job and they should be liable for any costs such as fines. I'd put a flea in their ear and say if it's not sorted out I'd be taking them to the county court to recover any costs. That should spur them into action.
  10. Wrong! For vehicles attending a pre-booked MOT, all that is needed is the pre-booked MOT appointment and insurance. You are allowed to drive to and from the MOT station without an MOT, (unless it passes of course then you drive back with an MOT ), without any road tax. You cannot tax a vehicle without either valid insurance or a valid MOT.
  11. I got a "fine" for no declaring a SORN a few years back. I rang the debt recovery company and invited them to try and enforce this fine. I got a couple of letters afterwards with exponentially increasing "fine" amounts. I think after ignoring the 3rd or 4th letter they moved on to someone else and easier target. Such "debts" won't show on your credit score and it's just a low life debt recovery company along with the DVLA paying a craps game hoping to scare people into coughing up. Just ignore them
  12. Fill out the V5 yourself and send it off. That way you'll know it's been done. Also send it recorded delivery so it needs a signature as proof of delivery.
  13. Long story but perhaps worth the read. I'm one of the fortunate ones the DVLA has successfully managed to screw up but it's actually worked to my advantage. Just to be clear, I passed my car test when I was 17 way back in mid 1980's and my bike test the following year long before the latest theory test and staggered motorcycle test [problem]s were introduced. Anyway, being a bit of a lad I went through a period of shall we say I felt the requirement for things like road tax and insurance didn't apply to me, (yes I was young and stupid), so naturally I found myself in and out o
  14. Oh dear! Some people just don't get it. For years now road tax has run from the 1st of the month to the last day of the month which is the 28/29th Feb, the 30th or the 31st. Just because your initial payment came out on the 14th doesn't mean your road tax ran from the 14th, it was back dated to the 1st which is why in the confirmation Email DVLA will have sent you it will have said your vehicle is now taxed. It's also why if you sell your vehicle in the middle of the month you won't be refunded any part of the road tax used, the DVLA haven't offered partial refunds for road tax
  15. That's a fair comment Ray BUT ... (Oh there's always a but isn't there ), the OP said he'd paid the fine on time and makes no mention of the money being returned then getting a summons to court. I would imagine the court action is for failing to produce his driving licence rather than the speeding offense itself as with the fine paid and the cheque cashed then surely the admission that he was speeding has been accepted by the money being accepted by the FPN team??? Now I know the laws of the land change on an almost daily basis in favour of the authorities, but surely they haven't c
