    Hi Everyone,

    Just had my private plate put on the motorhome and the log book came back today, so I ended up reading it.

    I noticed that under taxation type my van is noted as "HGV"
    Is this correct?

    Its an Autoroller 600 on a twin wheel transit 3850 KG

    Ours is a "private HGV" the private bit might be important, but it's fine as the road tax is lower than a sub 3.5 tonne.

    I've posted this before, but this is what the taxation class should say, this is from ours:

    How much do you pay for road tax ?

    £165 should be the answer.

    Send the V5 back with a cover letter explaing it should be PRIVATE HEAVY GOODS (VEHICLE)

    I need to check, I paid for it when I bought the van and I am sure it was about £245 , never questioned it really, and I had vague memories recentley about this being discussed then spotted this on the log book when it came back today

    @Peter Ashcroft Yup, that is wrong, by the way, I love your way of redacting of the V5 :D

    As mentioned you need to get that sorted, as ever, it will be your fault that DVLA got it wrong!

    if that is you in your avatar, you may need to check your licence. its fine for the old buggers that passed their test years ago. now you have to take another test above 3500kg. not knowing you though i have no idea of your background but asking this question makes me wonder

    Peter a bit of good news for you - if you did pay out £245 for the road tax you need to make sure you get a refund from whoever got the tax for you as it should only have been £165 ... possibly a genuine mistake on the seller/dealer's part but it should have been picked up and refunded to you then.

    Thank you Mel, I paid it myself online with my card at the dealer, so direct to the dvla, will they give me a refund do you think?
