  1. Hi, I bought a car which is currently taxed in the disable category. I only have the MOT and the green slip of the new buyer. How can I tax it?
  2. Hi, I've just bought a car from a private seller. Very happy with the car but when I went to tax it before picking it up I noticed that it is classed as disabled for tax purposes. It is currently SORN. I have the new keepers supplement but the seller retained the rest of the V5. I have the MOT certificate. Can I change the tax class at the post office and pay for tax at the same time?
  3. Hi, this is a bit long. I am just in the process of get my drivers license back after having to have surrendered it due to some medical treatment that didn’t go to plane. My Wife has just had to surrender her drivers license because at the beginning of last summer (2018) she acquired an autoimmune disease called Miller Fisher Syndrome and spent a significant period of time in ICU before being transferred to a long term rehabilitation hospital. As a result she’s semi paralyzed and has reduced eye function, speech impediment, limited movement and reduced confidence. we are getting a ca
  4. Dear Forum members, I would like to ask you if you could kindly help me draft the best POPLA appeal that I can in regards to the NTK I received from UKPC? Appeal sent as the Keeper of the Vehicle on the following grounds and asked for further information: 1. Equalities Act 2010 compliance (have sent them proof of disability for an occupant of the vehicle) 2. Parking Charge amount claim grounds 3. Asking them to give a breakdown of their actual loss. Is the charge a true reflection of damages? 4. Their status – the creditor? 5. Ownership of premises?
  5. I received a ticket for parking in a disabled bay. The markings we so bad I honestly didn't notice it was a restricted bay. The warden even said he'd appeal which I did. The reply from the council acknowledges that the bay markings 'are not in the best condition'. Is there rules about the road marking and their condition which would give me grounds to appeal

  7. Hi all, I wonder if you can help me. My partner and I had to rush our son into queens hospital on 02.02.17 on doctors advice as he had quite a severe reaction to antibiotics and needed to see a Paeds speciality doctor. we arrived at the hospital and found there were no disabled spaces outside - infact there were no spaces outside available at all initally. We drove around past A&E towards the Maternity car park where someone was leaving a space - which are marked as normal bays. We have parked in these spaces before and asked site security (actual queens se
  8. Hi, I am writing this on behalf of a disabled friend, who has received a Parking Charge Notice through the post from Civil Enforcement, mid last week, around the 26th of Feb. Some info: Date of infringement: 15th Feb 2018 Issue Date 22nd Feb 2018 Date Received 26th or 27th Feb 2018 No photo evidence mentioned, but possibly auto cameras. Cannot see any Section 4 mention on the letter. Just says Maximum Parking Allowance Exceeded. Not appealed yet, we will, and I will detail in a moment what we are thinking to say. Parking Company is Civil Enforcement Spinning Gate,
  9. Hi need some advice on this please. I'll try to keep this brief basically we don't have allocated parking, you can't park close to the house as there's no road up to it so I need to park as closely as possible. I have asked the housing association many times for disabled parking and they've delayed and now their latest excuse is they need to survey the other tenants, why they need to ask other tenants when i'm the one asking for what I think is a reasonable adjustment? I'm not in a wheelchair but I do receive both elements of PIP and I do have a mobility scooter, some days the
  10. Hello! This seemed to be the place to put this, though equally it could have gone in transport or benefits. I had a look through and couldn't find any similar threads. I have fibromyalgia and have been trying for the last two years to get a disabled bus pass. It's been complicated by the fact that I have never been in receipt of mobility in PIP, something I decided not to appeal the first time round as I just didn't have the strength. When they re-assessed me, I decided to take it to tribunal and have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting... In the meantime, I have been trying to
  11. Received a yellow PCN whilst in retail park 3/1/18. Yellow one from VCS. I was parked in the Disabled bay and in a rush. Placed my badge, not right down at the window, because I can't reach it to put it away. Saw the PCN, opened the car door and the badge was on the floor. Unfortunately I did say I was driving and sent copy blue badge. I have sent two letters to VCS and the one I got last week said I still had to pay and I could still pay the original amount of £60. This is stressing me out, sleepless nights, worrying and causing my asthma to flare up. Not good at

  17. Aplogies as an absolute newbie here, however I was asked to create a new thread. There is another recent thread (I can't post links, maybe someone else could as seems daft to recreate a whole heap of stuff). I am in the identical situation at the same location I have just received an identical letter from UKCPS, all details completely as the above mentioned thread (same paperwork). My wife was driving my car that day, obviously she didn't spot any signage etc. 28 minutes over a 4hr limit..... Disgusted that companies can request such 'fees', she is disabled (was parked in
  18. Careparking where: Whitefield Metrolink Free carpark , Bury new rd , Whitefield, Manchester. (behind the station) Hi I hope you can all help me with this query on behalf of my father who is 80 years old. Attached are two photographs of my father's car parked clearly in a disabled bay but slightly too far to the right hand side. He had to park this way because on arrival the original car in the left-hand bay was parked at an angle and was impeding into the disabled bay, forcing him to part to the right hand side. He correctly displayed his disabled badge. My mother

  21. Got PCN at hospital in NI. Ticket says no valid disabled badge on display. Disabled badge was on display and was visible in my opinion, though which side was up I couldn't say due to extreme stress. The badge belonged to registered owner who was in hospital and who in fact passed away a few hours after the ticket was put on the windscreen. The registered owner was not the driver but there was a key family member who was a passenger with mobility difficulties and so one of the disabled bay spaces was used. This is brutal and I am wondering how to address this as quick

  23. Hi everyone, been searching through the forums looking for answers to my debt worries, my head is swimming with information. My story starts approx six years ago when due to ill health of my partner I gave up work to look after her, unable to feed herself or do just the basic things that you and I take for granted, our lives changed rapidly for ever and with this came the debt worries so I was able to freeze the interest six years ago and begun paying the nominal £1.00 for each debt every month. Slowly but surely this year most of our creditors have dropped off the
  24. After the news in today's budget and the back tracking on certain UC policies it seems that if it CAN be done then WHY WASN'T IT IN THE FIRST PLACE? Originally, if you transfer from another benefit or a new claimant - NOT A PENNY FOR 6 WEEKS apart from an advance of 50% when claim approved Now: - No 7 day waiting period on new claims - Advance now full amount (not 50%) paid back over 12 months instead of 6 - Previous HB claimants now get 2 weeks grace on HB from their LA when claiming UC So all in all no waiting period and a 2 week HB grace and a cut in time for your fi
