Present Owner of Silver BX GTi Auto H ***FEG

I sold this car on, and have recieved a sorn declaration/tax renewal form, even though the log book was sent off etc etc and I recieved a notification of transfer.

Can you confirm the car is taxed and you have the log book in your name?

I don't fancy recieving a fine for an untaxed vehicle that I don't own.

It's probably a glitch in the DVLA system, but we all know how incompetant government agancies seem to be these days!!!! :o

Contact can be made direct at algtj@ tiscali dot co dot uk or here.


Many thanks Al Williams

Did you fill in the logbook yourself and post it on when you sold the car?

DVLA

Gentlemen re. the above please be aware that this is happening a lot and the first you will know is when a £80-00 fine arrives through the letter box. It has taken 5 months and repeated phone calls and letters to get a V5C.
All documentation etc. was correct and the car scrapped.
To the people involved who are members here I am not trying to "steal" your story but it is quite evident that the DVLA is making a real mess and trying to make £80-00 a time for the privalege.
Cheers.
Geoff.
