This is a very sore subject with me that will not go away.

DVLA years ago removed a vehicle registration from one of my cars.

It transpires that the Metropolitan police instructed them to do so.

The story behind the car is complicated but I am now more interested in the legal aspect.

Does anyone have any experience of anything like this happening.

Thank you

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Not legal advice but i have 2 stories


1)  Years ago an old boy I know who collects vintage lorries was up in Scotland with his wife and the Mayor drove past in his car with the reg ED1. Old boy went mental as this was a plate on one of his lorries, they had removed it because the vechicle had not been taxed for decades.   He got the plate back even though they put up a good fight. 


2) Another friend worked for a huge international company and had a company car every 3 years.  He asked if he could put his private plate on and they said yes.  Came around to new car delivery time and he called the required department to get his plate transfered onto new car.  Problem, they had sold the fleet including his with the plate to a new owner!   Eventually got it back but took legal action. 


So you could say 2 good outcomes to both........there is hope.

I may have posted this a few years ago.


But with all the focus on the Metropolitan Police and how they covered up things with dodgy officers.


This has now rekindled what went on.


I am very familiar with private plates as DVLA have stolen quite a few off me in the past 4BYO & 33ALC being my favourite.


But this is about the actual removal of a registration of a vehicle that was registered with old green log book and new V5 at time. 

Never registered as scrapped and owned for 15 years with £75000 spent on it.

Registration removed = worthless.


Transpires DVLA admitted the Metropolitan Police had instructed them to remove the registration.

Police had taken log books and chassis plates.

I cannot find anywhere that this kind of action is legal.


Bare in mind I have been subject to a Forfeit order followed by a Confiscation order back in 1997 which should never be possible.

Again the Police get away with a lot of things.
