    • Ok thanks guys for all the help & advice I think I will go the DRO option but will open a new bank account somewhere else first etc.  The only other things im little worried about is reading on the DRO it says about I wont be able to apply for credit but what about things like my car insurance as thats classed as credit paying it monthly Plus they say i must not have assets or car worth over £1,000 so what about things like my car worth around 2.5k and as said before when my father passed away he left me his camper that I cant part with its worth about 4k and what about things in house and jewellery etc ?? Can they come to house and check and so on
    • threads merged  please keep to one thread per issue.   dx  
    • read it proprly.. it doesn't say WILL anything and original creditors don't do court as they don't want the judge delving into their business model nor the bad publicity.   as for the FOS you just have to let it run. yours is a very short time since yo put it into them typically it always takes 6-9mts normally before they move on anything though they usually send you an ACK they have the complaint.        
    • Since the last post on this thread I have sent a complaint to the FOS but have not heard anything from them as yet either, I'm guessing they're rather snowed under and on reduced staff so no real surprise.   Still had nothing approaching help from lending stream but today they emailed me default notices for the loans, again demanding I phone them and pay up in full or they will begin court proceedings.   Any advice as to how I should proceed please?
    • Hi,   I received two PCNs in October 2019 from Havering Council. All the below applies to both PCNs, as the correspondences were at the same time:   Fast forward to February 2020, I file witness statements on grounds that I made representations within 28 days but did not receive a rejection notice.   The TEC cancelled charges.   Havering write to me asking for supporting evidence of representations that I made.   I email them screenshots with timestamps of the representations.   In early March Havering reply to me by email 'confirming receipt of email and both cases are now on hold pending an investigation. Please allow time for a full response to be sent.'   Fast forward to 18th June Havering write to me the attached:  Havering Charge Certificate.pdf   Now, it seems as though the sender of this letter is not up to date with both cases and is unaware of the TEC's decisions, as well as the email correspondence.   My questions are, 1) What should I do next? and 2) Is there a way to use their misstep to avoid paying for the PCN entirely?   Thank you.

    • 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

What is the legal position? My car is currently SORN (no tax, no MOT), I need to drive it to a garage tomorrow to get a full service etc. Then on to a separate MOT center.

 

I have insured the car by phone. I have insurance policy No, docs posted to me today. Can I legally drive it for such purpose?

 

I have searched .gov, VOSA, and Google - could find nothing other than must have valid MOT, Tax, insurance. :confused: Help appreciated!

As far as I know you are allowed to drive the car to the MoT test as long as the test is booked. Unless the service garage and the MoT centre are in opposite directions you should be OK - not strictly legal but OK.

Well you have left it a bit late to ask so all you get so far is me and hightail and I am no expert.

 

However, my understanding is that you can drive to a garage for an MOT. So hopefully, in the event that you are stopped which i must say would be very unfortunate, you will be on your way to the MOT and will explain that calmly. You can invite them to contact the garage for confirmation that you are booked in and you should be ok in my opinion.

 

If you are pleased with my response please tilt my scales and my name is Pedross

 

p.s. if anything goes wrong I am popeye the sailorman.

car is exempt from having road tax and mot for the journey to mot station only after you have made an appointment , if you pass tax exempt to return home , if you fail you get vt30 on vehicle , you are mow exempt from tax and mot , to and from place of repair , and back to mot station

Thanks all :), I think the best thing for me in view of your advice is to reverse my original plan, and to sequentially do in line an amalgam of what you advise. In other words, I intend to book MOT first thing tomorrow, car will probably fail, drive car to place of repair and back to testers under exemption of vt30. - Would that be legal? From my understanding of what you say I think so. I hope not to get my car seized. Thanks for the advice :) - Mike.

Thanks mate!:) If I get stopped, road worthiness wise, I believe it will fail on emissions due to it needing full service having been off the road for a year, and due for a service before hand. It is otherwise safe everything works fine. Its very old, but its a Toyota :) Mike.

Having the MoT first would be the most sensible thing to do and then any failures can be fixed by the service station if you don't want the MoT station to do them.
