  1. The new business about the tax not being transferable when selling a car will make them a bucket load. eg You sell a car on the 15th of a month, you claim the remaining tax back except the month your in. New person buys the car, then has to tax and pays for the whole month that we are in - even though we are now half way through. Maybe if tax was bought per day it would be fairer.
  2. Maybe this is why they are doing away with paper discs?

  4. have a read through here: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/body/dvla?utf8=%E2%9C%93&query=lost&request_date_after=&request_date_before=&commit=Search
  5. Send another letter, film yourself putting it in an envelope, addressing, posting etc. Irrefutable proof that you have done as required, by law.
  6. https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/v5c_registration_certificate_rec#incoming-492551 Any thought on more to ask/clarify? I'd really like to pin them down on posting is an acceptable method and maybe even an expected method to to the address given on the V5C form. Any thoughts?
  7. I'd tell them to stuff it and to see them in court. There is a FOI in progress: It will be interesting to see who they answer.
  8. Well in the absence of anything official from DVLA, given that DVLA is a government agency and that is the government website, it's pretty clear advice imo.
  9. This Government website plainly says POST if you sell to a trader - but SEND if it isn't a trader. https://www.gov.uk/notifying-dvla-if-you-sell-your-vehicle How about a FOI to DVLA asking how many V5 they receive per year by post? If not by post, what other methods do you receive V5? How many V5s do recieve by these alternate methods?
  10. Maybe DVLA should state this info should be sent in that manner, but they don't. Maybe this method is far too profitable for them, rather than helping their users use the service efficiently..?
  11. Hmm, I wonder if I'm due one of these letters then? I sent my V991 off in November and have heard nothing... Given that the DVLA provide a POSTAL address in which to "send" notification to, what else could you have done? In quoting the interpretation act back at you they seemed to have missed out the small part that states: "the service is deemed to be effected by properly addressing, pre-paying and posting a letter containing the document" Given that the DVLA do not require to send via recorded/special delivery, what more could you have done? You cannot be liable for their failure to process properly or the RM losing it.
