Hi all,

 

Sadly, my car will be walking the green mile soon following a diagnosis of a massive oil leak causing multiple problems, including head gasket issues.

 

It's now sitting folornly on my drive.

 

I want to sorn it & reclaim some of my tax back so went rooting for paperwork such as the v5c. I remember being sent the new red style one a while ago but I can't find it. I've still got the old blue one.

 

I'm loathe to fork out 25 quid for another one just to scrap or ebay the car as spares. Does anyone know if the blue one is still valid? It's looking like a trip to the dvla office in Chester anyway for the tax disc.

 

Cheers for any insight!

If you are the registered owner then just post the tax disk back to dvla with a tax refund request and also send them a sorn as well. then if you need to send your car to car heaven then write to dvla and notify of the vehicle loosing its fight with life.


I hate bailiffs. Let me know if you have had a problem with them. I am sure i could upset them.

I've just spoken to dvla. I told them I can't be 100% sure I received a new v5 so they are sending me a new one free of charge.

 

Still off to dvla office as need to get my tax disc back before tomorrow to be able to claim from 1st Dec.

As long as you post the tax disc off before the end of the month you will get back a pro rata monthly basis refund.

Not sure that is correct. I think they have to RECEIVE it before the end of the month.

Yes, they had to have it back by today. I saw something online about ?strike action today so thought it worthwhile having a wee jaunt to Chester with the littlie.

 

But, the day trip will get me 4 mths tax back, pro rata so worth the effort in my opinion! They will only refund based on full months.

To be fair, I think by the letter of the law, I agree with letsmakeamark in that you should only need to have posted it. But, as we all know, the DVLA have a habit of ignoring legislation or re-writing it to suit themselves and this may be one of them. The DVLA seem to have introduced the "we must have it back in our grubby little hands before the end of the month" rule coz that best suits them.

Interesting. DVLA admitted they hadn't sent one to my friend but still insisted on £25 for a new one!
