More trou­ble with the DVLA

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Your Letters -

Ian Banks’ trou­bles with the DVLA ( Let­ters, 17 Fe­bru­ary) prompted me to write as I ex­pe­ri­enced sim­i­lar er­rors on two of my cars over re­cent months.

The first is­sue re­lated to the DVLA in­di­cat­ing that the Daim­ler coupé I have owned for 24 years was built one year af­ter it was reg­is­tered. The se­cond was with a Jaguar X-Type I had just traded in. The agency had some­how crossed over the doc­u­ments, with the re­sult that the new owner’s road tax was de­clared in­valid. His car was clamped as a re­sult.

The DVLA did send me no­ti­fi­ca­tion that I was no longer owner of that car. How­ever, 10 days later a new V5C ar­rived still show­ing me as the owner. I re­turned it with an ex­pla­na­tion about a week ago but have had noth­ing back so far.

I have heard of nu­mer­ous sim­i­lar oc­cur­rences over re­cent years on all types of cars. Nick Parks, Craw­ley, Sus­sex
