    I haven't received the V5 for the W124 although when trying to SORN it, DVLA say they have issued it so I must Sorn by post and the direct debit continues unstopped so I am being taxed on a Sorn vehicle through their inefficiency. While we are at it, where is the unexpired portion of the tax...

    V5 not matching DVLA records

    Went to buy a new (to me) CLS this evening from a dealer. When I went online to register the car into my name with the DVLA, it said the V5 doesn't match the records they have. What he said is its in a traders hold (yellow slip filled out) and because he used the v5c/2 (new keeper supplement)...

    Current DVLA times for new V5C?

    I bought a car about 6 weeks ago from a private trader and still haven't received the new log book. He says he posted it straight away and I have no reason to doubt that. On the DVLA website it says it should arrive in 4 weeks but to wait for at least 6 before contacting them. Should I...

    MOT computer glitch at DVLA

    I always get my cars MOTd as soon as I can to allow the breathing space of the "extra" month in case work needs doing. However, I took my CLS in a couple of weeks ago as usual and was surprised and disappointed to see that the new MOT ran out exactly 12 months after the test, not 13 as is...

    DVLA Ineptitude

    Come home from work today and on the doormat is a letter from the DVLA. I open the envelope to find a letter dated 6th March informing me that this my "Last Chance" and "Do Not Ignore This Letter" in bold capitals because I haven't taxed or sorned my new E63. "Well," I thought to myself, "that's...

    Dvla robbing motorists

    What's the correct way of contacting the Dvla concerning them robbing money for car tax. Yet again!! I've sorn a vehicle on the 29th of last month and they've took the payment this month. It's not the first time they've done it since the new tax thing came out. Is there a number you can call...

    DVLA - online vehicle info wrong

    Has anyone had any experience with the DVLA's online portal showing incorrect details for their car and then getting them corrected? I've checked out a used MB that I quite fancy buying by putting its registration number into the DVLA's MoT history checker. This showing incorrect info, such...

    DVLA are checking.

    Spotted for the first time (for me) a small hatchback parked ahead on the grass verge of a 50mph carriageway just outside Bournemouth today. On drawing closer I saw a camera set up on a tripod and thought "Ah, speed camera". No. As I passed I saw the lettering on the car "DVLA Road Tax check"...

    DVLA licence check code now valid for 21 days

    I hadn't noticed this until going online to obtain a code. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/driving-licence-check-code-extended-from-72-hours-to-21-days The original 3 day limit was not well thought out. 21 days is rather more practical. But I'd prefer to see them simply provide a means of...

    DVLA Swansea

    A quick, urgent, question. Does anyone know if I can get a replacement V5 at the DVLA in Swansea? I know they closed all their regional offices, but can I drive to Swansea to get a one in the same day? I've somehow managed to misplace the V5 for my car... and leaving Saturday. M.
