I have a little issue with the dvla regarding a car they have seized, looking for some advice.

 

Im a car trader, the car was not registered in my name, being a car trader means I don’t have to sorn the vehicle, so the taking of the car is null and void?????????

 

The car was stored on a supermarket car park, I was being cheeky but I had no choice due to personal issues etc etc.

 

.since the car was on private land and I am a car trader, does the car have to be stored at my premises, and does the 3 month limit for it being in the trade apply before I have to register it.

Was it definitely the DVLA that have seized the car?

 

Was it definitely on the car park at the time.

 

Could the supermarket have removed the vehicle from their premises?

 

Yes the 3 month limit should apply,

 

however it all depends how the log book was filled in by the previous keeper.

cars left on private property can be removed if certain steps are correctly taken,

 

the only thing that cant be done is to charge you more than it cost the landowner to remove it.

 

If it looked a bit tatty they can send it to the scrap yard so be more cautious where you leave things.

 

BTW, you always have a choice, even if it broke down there

Thanks everybody for getting back.

 

It was the DVLA who took it,

I have started the appeals process

,where it will get me Im not sure,

 

here is the answer to stage just a rehash of things,

 

Ive included a copy of their letter,

the next step is to write to the director of the dvla (cant put the link in to the letter image, not enough posts)

 

It looks as though the car was put on the public highway deliberately, making those who did culpable

 

How the log book was filled in by the previous keeper,

 

can you expand on that.

 

 

 

cheers Ian

Maybe the ones that put it on the highway were only being cheeky ?

 

Don't the conditions of being a trader mean that whenever a car is off your property it has to have trade plates?

The exemption for motor traders only applies to vehicles kept at business premises, which may be why the DVLA removed it from the supermarket car park.

It seems to be every willy nilly of the dvla,

treating somebodies livelihood in such a manner,

do they actually have the power in law to do this,

i suspect its not on as firmer footing as they make out

The offence is contrary to s.29(1), Vehicles Excise & Registration Act 1988:

'If a person uses, or keeps, a vehicle which is unlicensed he is guilty of an offence'.

 

 

The exemption for motor traders for vehicles kept on business premises is s.29(2) © of the same act.

 

 

The power to clamp and remove unlicensed vehicles is Sch.2A of the same act - and would apply if it was in a supermarket car park or on a road.

They got you bang to rights, buddy. It wasn’t taxed, it wasn’t on your premises. Boom.

Raykay's extract from the Act didn't say "your" premises - but "business premises".

 

Could a supermarket car park be considered to be "business premises"?

But then again, although privately owned and maintained, a supermarket car park, having public access, introduces other legislation.

 

(just musing)

Muse away.... They have defined and answered that question in the reply from the dvla.
