    • Yes she went back to them and asked them to remove the cancellation however the girl on the phone went to ask someone and came back and said she couldn’t.   Thing is they then tried to charge her £1000 to reinsure, I contacted a broker and got it down to £760, she went back to them and they miraculously could do it for £690!!  It feels like they are using this to fleece her, her previous ins was £300.   I will get her to write a complaint to them...do you know if there’s an insurance ombudsman she could contact?    I just feel it would have been fair fair to suspend the ins pending the court outcome!    Thankyou.
    • Hi,    Yes my daughter drove through a red light.   Yes her DVLA was still registered to her previous address at Uni hence them not being able to contact her hence the MS90.   This is her 1st car and she simply didn’t think to re register her car to our address she genuinely forgot!  However we left our forwarding address with the letting agent but the house was subsequently sold and the new owner used a different letting agency so communication was lost.   The courts enlisted the bailiffs and when the current tenant found her via Facebook she was genuinely mortified as she had no idea that she had broken this light.   She immediately rang the bailiffs and court who advised her to make The Statuary Declaration, whilst waiting for that date to arrive she thought she better ring the insurance company to explain what was happening thinking they may have to suspend her policy however they cancelled it on the spot she asked them not to but they just went ahead charging her £50 to do so.   At court after she explained what had happened the court dropped the MS90, and reduced the points and fine to what it would have been originally.   Going back to the insurance company they said they couldn’t remove the cancelled policy and it would show on her record for life and tried to charge her £1000 to reinsure!!  Previously it had been £300 as she had built up 2 years no claims.   I contacted a broker who said he could insure her for £760, she went back to her original insurance company, Admiral who then said they could now do it for £690!!  How can they suddenly do that sounds unscrupulous to me and that they are using this cancellation to now fleece her!!   She is a medical student and needs the car to get to the different places she is working on placement but can’t afford to pay this extortionate amount of money.  I would expect her policy to go up a bit but would say max £500 is proportionate?    I will I’ll get her to contact them Regards making a complaint in writing as you have suggested.   Thank you.    
    • I’m not sure who you mean by the OD and do you want me to see if the PDL is enforceable or not pay it at all?   And what should I do about the NatWest? Surly there’s a case getting it wiped if the charges came from them charging me for a PBA that I had told them to close and they said they had. Also am I paying the credit cards back in full or trying to get a reduced settlement?   Thanks Andrew 
    • Initial payments have already come in - we wouldn't have started otherwise. There's about £3,500 outstanding. The £800 was verbally agreed initially, but later correspondence from the customer shows that he's accepted the £800 for the extra work.
    • Each should send a cpr 31:14? Cant produce signed documents = no liability??

This is driving me mad, why do passports have to be so hard work, why can't I just choose my window cleaner, why are things so difficult :(

 

Absolutely. We should make it that anyone can vouch for you, with no regulation or accountability.

 

Make it easy. That way anyone who wants to open bank accounts with a false name or defraud people can do so even more easily.

Sheesh!

 

Mind you, if your window cleaner has known you more than 2 years, and is a director of their own limited company : sorted, even within the current regulations ......

Update: Yesterday, one of my teachers contacted me on Facebook as I posted in a group asking if anyone knows who can sign my passport and she sent me a message saying she can sign it when she get's back from her holiday on September 9th, so that's my holiday to Benidorm sorted haha! Can't wait... :)

Need more advice please,

I have now filled in my passport application form what I got from the post office and also my friend who is an health nurse has filled in her bit where she has to put her details and sign and also sign my picture.

 

Now, where we put the date on the last page on section 9 and 10, we put the 14.09.2018 but I am not going to post it at the post office until a day later on the 15.09.2018 as I am in work on 14.09.2018 - will this be an issue?

will my application get rejected if I send it on the date that I haven't put on the form?

the same with the picture as well as my friend put the 14.09.2018.

 

Can someone please let me know as I am worried I will have to fill out the form again if I done it wrong, thank you.

Hi CT.

 

 

Are you serious about a day's difference in the date? I'd be amazed if it's a problem.

 

 

Have you checked the Passport Office list to see if your health nurse friend can countersign the form and photo? I thought your ex-teacher was doing it.

Hi, I was just a bit worried that the date might be an issue? my neighbour is doing it now, and yes, she is on the list of the countersign on GOV website as she is a nurse like I stated.

OK she's a nurse but the Passport Office website states she need to have one of two qualifications, have you checked that?

Yes I have Honeybee13 - I contacted her on Whatsapp and she told me this: Qualified healthcare assistant with Level 3 diploma in health and social care. Not sure if she has one of them qualifications what stated on the Passport Office as she didn't say, but will this do that she has Level 3 in diploma? or will it get rejected if she signs for it?

25 days in (since the OP said they were using “Check & send” at the Post office).

 

List of persons able to sign clearly states “RGN or RMN” yet the OP is asking about a health care assistant.

OP is either on a wind-up mission, or needs to get someone to “hand hold” them through the process IRL

I have rang Passport Office and two advisers said that my friend who works in Health Care who has a Level 3 diploma in health and social care can sign the passport form and picture, so everything is good! So, the person who said she is not on the list, you are wrong!

I hope they're right at the Passport Office, channing, because that isn't how their list reads to me.

That's true Honeybee13 but I think they are right as they work at the office so they should know, 2 different advisers said it's ok so it must be lol.

I have just spoken to another one and another adviser said yes, my friend can sign as she is in health care work and she has that Level 3 in diploma so it must be right then lol.

Level 3 in nursing isn’t a RGN or RMN.

It may be that the Passport Office will accept it, but:

a) that isn’t what their own guideline says (you’ve been provided with the URL to look for yourself!), and

b) you are taking a risk that they might not accept it despite what the advisers said.

You did get their names and record the calls, didn’t you?

From experience, as long as the person countersigning the picture has a uk passport they'll accept it.

I had mine countersigned by my neighbour who works in a school as admin, not a teacher, not even graduated.

Update: Yesterday I went to the Post Office to post my Passport application and I used the check and send service, the lady who served me looked through my form and she said everything is ok with the form and I got my former teacher (who she now has now retired) to sign for it and the lady said it will take six weeks to get an update on my interview to continue my passport application. So all good! :)

Update: Passport office has booked my interview for Tuesday 25 September at 12.15pm - I am just wondering what's the dress code for these interviews? could I come in my jeans and t-shirt slogan (Nobody Knows I'm Gay) or do they not allow slogan t-shirts into the building?

Given how seriously you're taking this and how much you've fretted about things going wrong, do you think it's appropriate to wear a slogan?

I fyou get the answer wrong, then you shouldnt have one. They just ask for name, address, employment, they pick some random amounts from your bank statement and ask about them ( yes they have access to them), and a couple other questions just to verify your identity.

 

Youre worrying way too much over all this. its just a passport. Youll be in and out of the office in less than 20 mins.
