    :Angry:

    Does anyone know whether it is actually possible to speak to a real person at the DVLA? I have just spent nearly half an hour trying different options and getting nowhere. My enquiry doesn't quite fit their exact categories, and there doesn't seem to be a "General Enquiries" or "All Other Enquiries" section. I am losing the will to live!!!
    (and I am fed up with my English spelling coming up as errors, but that's another matter!!!)

    early morning or around the 5pm mark are the times i have found best, just go for the most likely option to give you a person to speak to they will always put you through to the right department

    I spoke to a very helpfull gentleman when they registered my Mercedes, Hymer S700, Motor Caravan as a Mercedes, Renault Scenic, Pick up.

    You can always go to the Local DVLA office and speak face to face with someone. I had to resort to this to get it registered as PHGV instead of PLG.

    Yes, I would support John's suggestion, go to your local/regional office.

    We had to recently, and they were most helpful, another couple were also having difficulty getting the correct information from DVLA HQ, and a local officer was making the calls to help them also.

    I have to say we were most impressed

    yes ... and they were most helpful. I needed to speak to them after they told me my vehicle details were wrong and I did not own it :Eeek::Eeek::Eeek: after a bout of near hysteria the very nice lady sorted it all out and told me it was the error of the post office when I had retaxed Matilda. She then sent me a nice letter as well as my V5 explaining it:thumb::thumb:

    you do need to have perseverance though!
