  1. The out of court settlement letter from DVLA did say I had a right of appeal. I wrote one, much of it copied and pasted in to my original post. I made a genuine mistake and had no idea that I would be clamped. I just wanted to legally get my wifes car fixed MOT'd and taxed. I even had it towed so that I would not be breaking any laws on the way to the mechanics. Quite honestly we're not all that well off and struggle to make ends meet anyway.

I don't understand why did they ignore my letter of appeal? I would have paid the out of court to avoid a huge fine looming over me. I tried to appeal to their better nature to be honest I didn't even receive a response, just a summons... Should have known be
  6. Hi, First of all thanks for reading my woes with the DVLA. I will try and condense the information down as much as I can but it is a little long winded, so here goes. The vehicle I am writing about was correctly declared SORN since June 2011 and for the most part sat untouched on a private driveway. On December 12th 2011, I started a new job and although we struggled with one car for this month it was decided we should get the secondary car back on the road. I work shift hours and my wife works part time core hours so a secondary car was absolutely necessary. The vehicle in
