My Son sold his moped back in mid April 2020.  

I helped him advertise it as  a non runner and this was specified in the ad.

 

It generated a lot of interest and promptly sold to a buyer who offered £120 less that original asking price.

They were great, turned up to trailer it away on time.

Did all the transfer of ownership on- line etc.

 

All happy until a day ago when I got a call to say they had tried to sell it on but there was no VRN or VIN anywhere on it so the buyer said my son sold a dodgy bike and they contacting the police to report it.

 

The bike was owned by my son for over 4 years, serviced regularly and MOTd up until Dec 2019.

It just lay about for almost a year so I asked him to fix or sell. 

 

I checked the last mot and there is a vin number showing on it.

My husband says they can't mot it otherwise. 

 

Am at a loss now as they have had the bike for 2 months.

Can someone advise me at all please?

send them the VIN number

they should be able to get a V5C using the V62 form.

 

not his problem after that.

Hi thanks for the reply.

I failed to mention it was sold with the v5 and last mot certificate service history,

but the buyers did it all on line outside whilst loading it onto their trailer.

 

They sent me proof that they had transferred ownership as my son hadn't heard from dvla to confirm. 

 

Will send them the vin.

As I read the problem, it is not about knowing what the VIN number is, but where it is because the actual VIN number cannot be found on the moped itself.

It should be stamped/engraved somewhere on the main frame, usually on the right side of the steering neck/head. but can be elsewhere.

Doubt you'd get a mot done as you did with the vin ground off.

So they need to look on relevant websites as its not just in one place on a bike.

 

Not your problem they cant sell it

And i doubt they have reported it to police as they'd know where its secretly marked.

 

Imho they are just trying to pull a fast one on you.

well, that wont get them out of a jam if they have missold the bike, the buyer will know what address they bought it from.

You cant argue with stupidity, they will beat you hands down with experience.

*You need to contact the DVLA and inform them of the date that the machine was sold and to whom. Unfortunately you have fallen foul of a chancer who no doubt said ' I will get the ownership changed over for you',  which is wrong. It is the responsibility of the registered owner to notify DVLA by sending the completed V5c to them. . I've given them the old log book with your details on so if theres issues they contact you.

As far as the sale of the vehicle is concerned, you do not need to worry, should you be contacted by the 'new' new owner, simpy refer them to the person that you/your son sold it to.

*You should notify DVLA by letter with free proof of posting.

My time as a Police Officer and subsequently time working within the Motor Trade gives me certain insights into the problems that consumers may encounter.

I have no legal qualifications.

ie the first person your son sold it to, not the people they sold it on to.

 

Sorry - it's probably obvious but I think it's sometimes easier to spell everything out to avoid confusion...

They sent me a screenshot of the new v5 in their name on 28 April, as my Son never received confirmation from DVLA . It shows clearly the new owner and address. But I will still do as advised thank you.
