    • Thanks Dx , FTM Dave, Andyorch and brassnecked for your input.   As my car was scrapped while living at the same address as the PCN, do I still need to get an SAR from the DVLA?   Dx: I have tried calling dcb(L) several times and it just goes to answerphone due to lockdown. I have been onto their website which asks you to leave your name, phone number, email address and a brief description, for them to call you back.   Wasn't sure what to say in the description, or whether to give them my number and email. Would you suggest asking if they will consent that way? Or do I need to get a consent order properly drafted by a solicitor?      
    • could admin put this on the right part of the forum please as I realise its not capital one   Thanks
    • I can understand that you mean well (cheers for that and I appreciate it) but really its the kind of upbringing I had where being mean to mean people is highly discouraged as it leaves one struggling to distinguish between good and bad. I have slightly modified the letter as recommended by honeybee13. Please let me know your thoughts guys. Thank you   Dear Simple-Simon, VCS invoice no: VCS4***** You clearly are not as simple as you sound. Why would I part ways with my hard earned cash and hand it over to a to a company that has no locus standi here and has fallen into the same trap as OPS v W at Lewes CC 24th April 2020, particularly paras 52-65. Your prohibitive signs are just that and no offer of a contract. Even if they were a legitimate offer of a contract, they completely ignore the 5-10 minute grace period usually afforded in such cases anyway.   I believe VCS is already in breach of GDPR as it had no legitimate reason to ask for my details. If you want to take me to Court, you’re more than welcome as I will be seeking a full costs recovery through a recovery order. No liability or debt is owed to VCS so please refrain from sending any future letters demanding money. Finally I'll refer you to the Arkell v Pressdram case and the letter from Private Eye magazine, act on that!
    • Apologies that this is similar to other posts but not quite what I need   I'm a home owner but took the mortgage when I lived with my mum as she wasn't in full time employment, and I paid it as board after she gifted me the house sale money from when her and my dad divorced. so although I'm the owner it really is my mums house. £12,000 mortgage and £9,000 secured loan remainig   I've had a gambling debt before and paid it all off using payplan apart from a loan I got against the house when I lived with my mum.   I'm now married but not on the mortgage of our house and my wife is the owner   January 2019 I gambled again using paypal - There was a switch you could tick and I didn't need any funds on my account. I chased and chased and ended up losing £54,000 over a couple of days.   I quickly got loans as my credit had got better as it was 6+ years after my IVU for what I could and used overdrafts and credit cards to pay as much as I could back to Paypal. I had no idea how much Id lost until it came through a few days later.   I still owe paypal £15,100 who have now passed their debt on to wescot    I contacted paypal at the time and said it shouldn't be allowed to deposit that much without some sort of check but they said as they don't lend they don't have to comply with a lending agreement. seems worse than a payday loan to me ? has anyone took this similar situation to court or anything. I know I was wrong for gambling but I genuinely thought at the time I would win more and pay it back which is why I kept going !   So now I owe    Paypal - Wescot - 15,100 no agreement to pay anything back ratesetter loan £11,150 - they wouldn't agree a plan to pay £1 per month but seems they've passed it on to Cabot financial and I've not contacted them yet. Aqua master card 5,800 - passed on to cabot financial and £1 payment agreed per month Hitachi loan £14,500 - no agreement in place just received a letter saying I now owe the full balance Halifax loan £4,500 - agreed to pay £1 per month Halifax overdraft £210.00 - agreed to pay £1 per month Santander overdraft £1,238 - on hold Barclays credit card £2,200 - on hold Next shopping account  £293.74 on hold   is it conceivable that I'll pay £1 for the rest of my life to these companies ?    What are my options ?   Thanks for your help

As mentioned in the title

 

i had purchased this car on 16/09/12 with my son.

 

The car is a fiesta 2009 1.6 tdci and all seemed well besides a few scratches to which the salesman knocked £200 off for.

 

All was well until today i took the car to my garage for a full valet

which was then i realised that there was a patch of carpet glued over a hole on the passenger side.

 

I then lifted the carpet and to my horror i had then seen holes for which dual controls would have gone.

 

I then also noticed a clean scratch free square shape on the roof where the learner sign would have been.

 

When purchasing the car i had asked the garage who owned the car and they said it was company vehicle hence the higher mileage

and on the logbook was the name of a company of which sells and hires cars.

 

I was NOT told it was a driving instructor car at the time.

 

I contacted the garage today and the seller has refused any wrong doing despite him admitting that he knew it was instructors

and didnt tell me and refuses to refund my money or even give some compensation:mad2::mad2:.

 

Please tell me what are my rights on this and how would i go about them?

 

Thank You

Well, for a start dx, the car is a little dodgy. Holes in the floor, simply covered with carpet?

 

You are probably right, but its a good idea to get it checked out.

What is silly about some ones concerns? Isn't this what CAG is all about?. The only thing remotely silly is your comment.

Today i met with a friend who used to work for trading standards and he has got me in contact with an old colleague of his who is now looking into this.

Good luck. Just be warned, used car dealers can be very shady.

What is it exactly you think you will be claiming against/for?

 

Are you claiming he lied to you? (which, while he may have been economical with the truth, he doesn't seem to have done) Driving school cars sometimes are hired through major national companies and, as such, would have been recorded with the national company as the RK.

 

Or are you claiming an ex driving school car is some how inferior? This is often a midguided assumption as the are generally extremely well maintained and, should they be unfortunate enough to have a bump (which are 99% of the time non-fault), repaired to insurance industry standard as the 3rd party is frequently paying for the repair.

Sorry Karan, but i don't think you will get anywhere with this. You bought a high/er milage car which you know was a company car. Tuition cars are not generally thrashed like some company cars (some of which have had many drivers). Perhaps a little more wear on clutch and box. Many people nowadays buy X leased cars and there is no way of knowing what sort of life the leasee gave the car. As previously stated, tuition cars generally, are well maintained as the school's cant afford breakdowns whilst working.

However, it may be possible to get seller to put right holes in floor. We always filled them up with bolts and large repair washers to hold in sealant.

Good luck.

Its not down to the dealer to tell you what the car had been used for its got nothing to do with him he is just selling a car. His only obligation is to not make false statements, such as 'one lady private owner'. He told you the vehicle had been comany owned if you didn't want a driving school car you should have asked before you bought it. If you went back and complained it was owned by an 'estate agent' would you expect him to do anything, why should a driving school be any different? Your only issue should be the holes in the floor and do they affect the car making it 'not fit for purpose'.

Hi

 

My concern is not too much about him selling me an instructor car but about how poor the repair to the floor is and i am not looking for my full money back as the car does seem to drive fine but i am only looking for compensation in order to repair the carpet back to a factory standard. Which part of the soga i will be using i dont know im leaving that to trading standards to decide they are now taking care of it

If you had specifically asked whether it had been a driving school car and was lied to then you would have some recourse.

 

Companies often have names on V5s which don't relate to what the car was used for. Provincial Securities used to be a name that Swan National hire cars were registered under.

 

We once sold a lovely white Mondeo ST, name on the V5 was Ford Motor Company, actual use was for a demonstration car for the Police, it even had the calibrated speedometer fitted.

 

There are plenty of cars out there registered to VW Financial Services which could be used by anyone for any purpose.
