  1. Hello, I received a PCN in Harrogate before Christmas and I'm about to fight it. I've been reading around and it seems I won't have to pay because someone has got a judgment which states that the disc zone in Scarborough in completely unenforceable . The guy who won the judgment said that Scarborough, Harrogate, Whitby and Knaresborough are all unenforceable because they all share the same signage. It ended up in the local rag and it seems the councils involved want to fight the judgment he got. He also said it will cost the councils millions. His info is on t
  2. Hi Hoping to get advice regarding an issue that has taken two years to investigate but I don't know where I stand regarding my rights and any form of recourse. June 2014 Car taken in for a service. This included replacing brake pads and discs as they were worn. The day after the service I emailed the garage informing them of excessive noise from the brakes. the garage advised to run in the brakes over a few hundred miles. However the excessive brake noise persisted and it was captured over a number of recordings which was shared on youtube. July 2014 The car was returne
  3. Nearly 100,000 cars have been clamped or towed away by the DVLA following the removal of paper tax discs last October, with some drivers facing fines of more than £800. In July, 10,554 vehicles were clamped, up by 87% compared with the same month in 2014. Release fees start at £100, but double within 24 hours, and errant motorists may also have to pay storage fees running into hundreds of pounds. Drivers must also pay a £160 surety, which is returned once they have correctly taxed their vehicle. What is catching out many motorists is that vehicle excise duty is automatica
  4. Hello. Not withstanding - the recent changes in regulation re the display of a tax disc on a motor vehicle, could anyone please give a definative answer to the following question. Is it or is it not, contrary to the current law, to have a motor vehicle standing on adopted public highway, displaying an out of date tax disc? Thank you, Pete.
  5. I have painstakingly repaired an old Sony Network Walkman NW-HD1 have the 2.3 disc but ofcourse this does not cover or allow the playing of MP3 files the later 4.3 updated software does. now there are loads of sites that either point to the now defunked sony update link or ofcourse poke you a virus file which is nothing to do with it. does anyone par chance have a working download [proved] or a copy of the disc sonicstage 4.3 that they can send me an .ISO of? this for a disabled user that has learned for years to use this devise and c
  6. Hi. I had a local council PCN today. I have seen on Google all the technicalities one can get a ticket cancelled with, but everything seems to be in order, street name, reg etc, except, my last tax disc is still in the holder and is 7 months out of date, (the car is taxed!), but the number of the disc and expiry date of 30/09/14 are recorded on the PCN. Is this a valid technicality to get the ticket cancelled do we think ? I haven't removed the old disc because I don't have to, but in effect the PCN is incorrect. Thanks, all !

  8. Consumer Action Group received the following email from someone who renewed his tax disc online.. Please do be vigilant when using these "Look alike sites" Check that you have typed in the correct webpage and look for any sneaky sign that you will be charged. [ATTACH=CONFIG]51733[/ATTACH] We have previously highlighted similar issues with Look alike Passport and Driving Licence renewal websites
  9. went onto the GOV.UK site to renew tax disc queried this when i was charged £165 and not £125, Was told by DVLA that i had used a tax disc renewal service that charges £40.00 for renewing tax disc. Debit on bankstatement came up as taxdisc.direct.co.uk Any one else had experience of this? Registered this with the DVLA as a complaint and also with citizens advice consumer line.
  10. Hi there I'm new to this forum and could do with some help. 5 months ago I bought a used 207 from a dealer and at the time no issues with the car where pointed out, I was told that it came with 2 year warranty and a years free mot when the current one runs out which is around now.. I booked it in with the dealer for its free mot and then after dropping the car off I was contacted by the dealer stating that some work needed to be carried out and that it needed new rear disc brakes and pads which don't fall under the warranty I thought fair enough wear and tear, he quoted me a price
  11. Right, in keeping with my confusing life, here's a confusing clamping / tax disk issue. I bought a pup of a van from a "reputable" dealer in November last year. That is another story, but is going to court due to the fact it was a wreck that was patched up. It has been in a garage (Mechanical workshop type of garage, not a lockup) since the 20th December last year, getting major repairs. I got it back last Saturday, but the repairs hadn't sorted the matter, so I phoned the garage to come back and pick it up. I also noted that the tax disc had expired while it was in t
  12. hi, does any body know if a bailiff can remove a car displaying a disabled tax disc,have received a notification from rossendales saying"they have seized ,distrained and impounded upon the premises the goods specified in the inventory", but the vehicle isn't clamped. also the signature on the paper work doesn't actually say anything.its just a small squiggle.

    lost tax disc

    This is so weird and unbelievable. I have a magnetic tax disc hiolder on my windscreen and if it is a sunny day, it often falls off onto the dashboard. As I was driving today, the tax disc holder fell and I saw the paper valid tax disc fall on the floor by the passenger seat. When I got home I opened the passenger door to get a bag off the seat and I didnt pick the disc up. Later I went back out and thought I must put the disc back and now I cant find it in my car. I have looked under all the seats and wondered if it could have blown out when I opened the passenger door the first ti

    Online Car Tax Disc

    Hi all, My car is fully insured [fully comp] and MOT'd until end of July 2013, but my Road Tax Disc runs out in a couple of days time. I don't have the ROAD TAX Disc Renewal / SORN Declaration notification letter that the DVLA usually sends out with the 16 digit reference number as I'm currently (temporarily) out of the UK in the EU working. (e.g. car is therefore classed as being "temporary exported" - which means of course that my car must comply/meet UK Laws/Regs.) No probs I thought - use the online DVLA service - I have the car docs with me and my registered keepers address rema
  15. My sons Xbox 360's disc drive stopped working so I bought a replacement one from ebay. I followed the You Tube tutorials to replace it. Everything seemed ok, but the new drive will only play DVD's and CD's. It won't play any games. Anyone know what I need to do?
  16. Hi, back at the start of April I somehow lost my tax disc, or it was nicked. I applied for a replacement ASAP but I had to carry on driving my car as it is a vital part of my job, and was told if I couldnt come to work they would find somebody else to do my job for me. I got pulled one night and got an on the spot fine for 'failing to exhibit valid excise licence ve10), the copper told me the DVLA can impose a fine of upto £1000 but probably wouldnt do anything. The next morning my tax disc arrived in the post. A couple weeks down the line I get a letter from the police rescinding their ticket
