  1. Then the ones who after making all the right noises pre-test drive "It's really nice , exactly as you described!" .... say "yes it's really perfect, can I call you first thing in the morning as I need to have a chat with the wife." You feel like a punching them straight between the eyes
  2. Yes exactly David. How long before you found out they would waive the fine for an innocent mistake on their horseshit system?
  3. Yes I got hit with a not insignificant fine of £250 for not confirming my address was still the same on the new "connect portal" it's not easy to navigate and at the end you have to search for a submit button after it looks like everything has been submitted. This has to be done every year. Surely a £250 fine for NOT notifying a change of address would make more sense, rather than having to confirm your address is the same every year. I don't know many other organistions that could get away with such a large fine without first given written notification in form of an actual letter rather than relying on e-mails which get easily lost in busy inbox etc
  4. Some great answers from you knowledgeable lot. I've just had a very similar claim on the Golf which was just 3 days inside the 3 month warranty and wondered how I would have played it 3 days outside.
  5. Interesting Twerp, not heard of this before. Just joined but it's not recognising alot of the regs I've entered? do you use just for basic searches or does it require a subscription to get the proper info?
  6. For future reference Turns out it could be taxed with just the old style V5 at the PO
  7. Update! After 38 mins on hold I got through to the DVLA welsh hotline and the chap there tells me I can 100% tax at post office using the old V5 that I have and just fill in new keeper details, don't even need a V62 apparently. I checked and double checked with him and he assured me this would be straight forward, I'm dubious! Just wish I had an app to record these calls on my phone.... What do you reckon my chances of success are?
  8. OK thanks so check Monday with DVLA... who were so busy do to covid on Friday they didn't have anyone to answer the phones!! Assume if not in trade I will have to V62 it to the business? Thanks again
  9. Thanks Tony, BHM seemed to imply that it would need to be in the trade to able to tax at the PO using V62? But your saying it won't make a difference? It seems like an eternity since I taxed anything at the PO!
  10. So having thought about it; assume i'm going to need to V62 form it to my business name adding a keeper? No other way round it that I can think of?
  11. I just checked online and its still showing as taxed so assume DVLA have not declares to trade. Whats the best way to proceed in light of the above please?
  12. Thanks very much for the advice David and BHM really appreciate it.
  13. Hi car just in from BCA who have have kindly sent me an old style V5 which I can't use to tax the vehicle obviously. What are my options please? assume I have to apply for a new V5 in business name? adding a keeper, a £25 fee and then wait 4 weeks for DVLA to pull there finger out?! Many thanks for any help Huggins
  14. I was thinking the same , they seemed to be doing very good business and had built up a good following on social media.
