    • EU deal replicated 'as far as possible' ... aka less than   "The British Government is continuing to work intensively on securing continuity with other countries. We have secured agreements – either signed or agreed in principle - that account for 64% of the UK’s trade with all the countries with which the UK is seeking continuity, should we leave the EU without a deal."   With what I've seen on that page I linked earlier, that would seem to be decidedly unambitious 'trade deals across the world larger than the EU
    • dx100uk - thank you for your advice.  I will send a SAR to Vanquis and really appreciate all the help on here.   I may have read your last sentence in the way that it was not intended but it has came across very judgmental and not helpful.  I have came on this site for some help, not to be judged.  If that was not your intention then I apologise as I realise text can be read in the way it was not intended.  
    • . I'm sorry but this is not correct. There is a very long established rule that you are required to exercise utmost good faith (uberrima fides) when becoming a party to any kind of insurance contract. This means that you have quite a strict duty to accept responsibility for disclosing any information which a reasonable person in your position might understand could materially affect the risk. I can imagine that the interpretation of this rule would not be applied quite so strictly to a very new and young driver – but the more that one has been driving and the more insurance policies one has held, then I think that the stricter  this rule becomes. It is also well established that one can misrepresent something simply by withholding information – by silence. I'm sorry to say that I think that this rule and the value of it is so self-evident that it is scarcely worth discussing. I wouldn't start raising this issue if I were you with insurers or the courts because you will come away with a bloody nose and loss of credibility
    • @unclebulgaria67 your point is particularly valid especially in regards to loss in the event of a claim. Irrespective of 2x SP30’s or not the vehicle is insured for its full market value. The insurers rating changes based on risk against those endorsements, where said risk calculation isn’t made available.    Also I question the validation of 22% in premium. Is that based on today’s risk profiling, or is that applied retrospectively to day 1 and can that be evidenced.    One thing that is very clear, is that to bring about any degree of misrepresentation the insurer has to have evidence that questions were asked in regards to the endorsements.   This was an auto renewal and when I’ve checked the Brokers electronic Copy on “My Policy’ at renewal, there is no section included relative to accidents in the last 5 yrs or Motoring convictions. Everything else relative to me and the named driver is listed.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

My car was bought in 2005 and I purchased my 1st private plate which went on the car in 2005. A few weeks ago I purchased my second private plate (a 51 registration number) off the DVLA website. I went to the DVLA office and asked for 1st private plate (which was on the car) to go on retention and the 2nd private plate (the 51 reg I just pruchased last week) to go on the car.

 

Ive now recieved a letter from the DVLA saying my application to put the original private plate on retention has been acceppted. They say the 51 plate (that I purchased few weeks ago) will now go on my car but that it is NON TRANSFERABLE. Why is the hell is it non-transferable? Ive paid over £1000 for it and it didnt say anywhere on the DVLA website that taking one privte plate off a car and putting a second one on makes the second one non-transferable (basically they are saying I cant transfer the second private plate to another car in the future).

 

Im sure this is wrong but I dont know what to do, the DVLA office is currently closed for bank holiday. Any advice?

Indded it is. It's a Public Holiday (and the Banks are only open for a few hours).

 

As to the point meing made, I've only been aware of two situations where a plate has been made non-transferable. The first was an error by the DVLA, In its original lifetime the plate was used on a motorbike which had a 'no transfer' flag on it (ok to another M/b but not another car). The old number was re-harvested by DVLA for sale from their 'own' stock - but they forgot to clear the old restriction on what was effectively a reissued' plate. A high level complaint got this fixed.

 

The second was when a plate had reached 10 transfers, and DVLAs computer flagged this as suspicious, sating further transfer would not be possib le. Again, this could be something that takes human intervention to rectify.

Interesting because my VRM has had way more than 10 without any problems.

perhaps, as buzby is suggesting, it is picking up a flag, but on review by humans (ed. are there such things still employed at the DVLA?) they are deciding it looks in order.

I cannot help with your problem, but I am a car dealer, and I find that probably about 5% of the vehicles I buy, there is printed on the V5 that the VRM is non transferable. In all cases the vehicle has previously had a private number, and the year related number the car has been allocated after the private plate has been removed cannot be transferred. Why, I don't know.

I'd forgotten about that wrinkle. The DVLA were so paranoid about creating a 'goldmine' for motorists this was brought in early on in the Cherished Numbers scheme of things.

 

Normally, if a car has a standard-issued VRM, then has a personal plate transferred in, then out in most cases the original number was returned to it. For cars that never had a standard issued VRM (its first V5 being the cherished number) when THAT plate was moved on again, DVLA had to provide (for free) a plate to match the original year of first registration. Now, this might have some value to the RK or dealer (I always liked SOD 1T) to prevent any value being attached, it had a bar on further transfers.

 

They're just bad sports. They can do it, and they don't want anyone else benefitting in the same way.

I had that situation a few years ago when I bought a S/H vehicle which was fitted with a cherished plate.

I had to wait a few days for the plates to be sorted out. The car was given, what I believe, its original plate back.

Surely the OP can apply to have this "lock" on the plate removed once he can clearly demonstrate the plate has been bought and paid for?

If the lock is in error - of course. They've been back at work for 2 days, I wonder what happened?
