Having read a lot of the posts on here it is no surprise that the DVLA get away with so much incompetence and cause such a huge amount of injustice.

A good proportion of replies to those looking for help are very pro DVLA or "its your own fault you deserve it" and "The law is the law"

The reason we have a justice system at all is so that the law is applied fairly, evenly and without bias.

The key word here is FAIRLY. There is nothing FAIR about a public body who claim INFALLIBITY and use all the might of the government to punish people without trial.

Aaaah people will say you can choose a trial !!!! However,most penalties are set at a level that force you to take the punishment because you can't afford to pay for a trial.

Is it fair that someone who has no tax for a couple of hours receives the same punishment as someone who has no tax for years, is it fair that someone who takes their car off the road but doesn't tell the DVLA about it gets punished more than a shoplifter or a burglar.

Criminals who break the law deliberately, get legal aid, have more punishment options (including non financial penalties) and more importantly cannot be convicted in their absence nor have their possesions removed without a special court order.

A motorist with no road tax, parked too long, or with no car on the road is treated with contempt by both the government and more importantly the general public at large. And is subject to summary punishment far more extreme than the "crime" merits.

Whilst I can agree with many of your sentiments in your post, I cannot say I can see where you get the comment that many replies are pro DVLA. I have been posting on this board for well over a year and would say that most replies do not support the DVLA in any way.

I have to agree with crem. As for these 'trial's that can't be afforded, they will be small claims around £30 so are affordable.


is treated with contempt by both the government


While they are certainly that, they are also seen as a cash cow as the government knows the people will not give up their cars and that is why fuel tax is going up another 2p per ltr on 1st Sep.
