  1. this is a good one(not for me) I had my car sorn and parked on my drive, i pre booked an mot for 1030 next day , circa 8 am as the mrs went to take the kids to school she asked me to save her a parking space , i went to try and tax the car on line but could not, i went outside and swapped cars came back in and tried again to tax it could not, i thought well ill just go to mot place as i was going to the car and wait for the mrs she walks in with a smile on her face " you ve been clamped " i replied " yeah sure dont you want to park yours as i go to mot" low and behold i had indeed been clamped . it was now circa 840. i had to pay £260 and then got £160 back, the guy who clamped it was ok and said i should get all the money back as it was a mistake since i had a pre booked mot. However this was only the beginning of my troubles, I tried to contact the dvla - its like asking for an audience with the Pope! Eventually i was told that not only would i not get the other £100 back i would be fined, low and behold a summons came through , it was not clear what exactly it was for i contacted the court and explained the situation, and sent them a copy of the garage diary with my details etc etc, next i get a letter from dvla stating that as i had entered a guilty plea they were offering me the opportunity to pay £285 to settle out of court. I hadnt heard from court yet nor entered any plea. To to it all the letter from dvla had a contact number and fax number that does not exist, and they put down the address of the offence wrong. i tried to contact them no response sent them a letter asking for a copy and all relevant material to be sent to me, never heard back, got a court summons to appear this monday at watford magistrate court to answer for keeping a car on the road under sorn. any one can help with what i should say in court????
