    • this is not making much sense but thats not usual for the threads from you... the fact that he is abroad and ill ? he cant use a phone..... he cannot easily communicate vocally so phone is out? fullstop? can he not use a chat online facility, most banks websites have them? can you not simply write to the bank and explain this? all banks must under banking rules have methods other that voice to communicate with them 24/7 do you know the reason why the account was blocked yet? is this bank a UK bank? if this has been going on for months now you should have logically already worked these things out for yourself.......
    • well i see what they respond with from carreg as i paid them for the plate and they put it with a wrong name which is a joke   i did try dvla to register the v750 to change name to my account but say its already been joined to another account 
    • He wasn't and isn't transferring any funds overseas.  It was 1 small transfer - ironically to me (which he'd done before) - and 2 small ATM withdrawals.  He has a 300/d limit on the card. And can't transfer more than 2k at a time.  This happened a number of months ago. And he isn't able to call the bank from overseas due to health issues.  He's getting his pension monthly (which I set up for him) and he can't access it.  It's a sad state of affairs
    • the RK on a cars v5c is not necessarily the owner nor the driver of a car as long as the person driving is insured it matters not. the bottom line is the VIN Number if push comes to shove that proves without doubt that they are indeed 'the same car' i seriously doubt you'd be that unlucky during the short period this might extend over till sorted.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I had to return my licence to the DVLA 7+ years ago for medical reasons.

 

 

I would now like to reapply for my licence as I feel that I am no longer subject to the medical condition.

 

 

I don't have the letter which confirmed the receipt of my licence by DVLA.

 

 

I don't have record of my licence number. Also I don't recall that the suspension was a fixed period.

 

 

Can anyone advise me what is the correct process for applying for a new licence?

Did you voluntarily surrender your licence? or was it revoked / refused?.

 

If revoked / refused, you'll need to wait until they re-issue you a license.

 

If voluntarily surrendered, you can drive as soon as they receive your application (subject to conditions - see webpage below).

 

Hence, if voluntarily surrendered and you are eligible to drive as soon as they receive your application, then send it by Special Delivery, so you can prove it was received :)

I was unwell at the time, but my licence would have been returned because my doctor would have informed the DVLA was unfit to drive.

 

 

I have the same link which you are sending me to - form which is headed Confidential Medical Information. The first thing is that I don't have my Driver No. The second point is that it is not an application form. The third thing is that I wish to report that I no longer have the condition.

 

 

Do I just send the form with an accompanying letter?

Phone Driver's Medical Group at DVLA, Swansea.

 

Give them your name, date of birth and address at the time of licence return, and the date it was returned

(has your address changed since?)

 

See if they are able to give you your Driver number (or send it to you). It may be helpful for you (before you call) to try to recall when & where you passed your test, in case they need this for verification.

 

They may also be able to inform you if your license was revoked / refused or voluntarily surrendered.

 

The medical info form is distinct to a D1 or D2 licence application which you will also need to complete.

 

You will likely find that you will no longer have Group D1 (small minibus) entitlement on any newly issued licence, even if you previously had this entitlement.

"Your first thing"; no recollection of driver number :

Phone Driver's Medical Group at DVLA, Swansea.

(has your address changed since?)

"Your second point"; the med info form not being an application :

The medical info form is distinct to a D1 or D2 licence application which you will also need to complete.

 

You will likely find that you will no longer have Group D1 (small minibus) entitlement on any newly issued licence, even if you previously had this entitlement.

 

"Your third thing"; no longer having the condition:

Put that in the medical info form. Note that you had your condition and the dates. Put when you no longer have the condition from, with an explanation if possible

e.g. "obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA): Treated with CPAP 2006-2014.

I lost weight and was retested for OSA, when I was found to no longer have OSA (Aug 2014)

Since Aug 2014 I no longer require CPAP, and do not suffer from daytime or excessive sleepiness"
