    This is yet another short sighted move that has been allowed by government

    I have spoken to a few people recently who have a new car every 2 years.
    Because of the road tax situation more than 1/2 of them have delayed replacing their motors
    I suggested to one lady that I thought it was a bit petty seeing as how she spends a few grand over and above every time.. She said it was just the principle of the whole thing

    Considering the government are trying to get folk to spend money they do seem to be going out of their way to turn folk off the whole idea

    Paying car and van both by monthly DD. When I sell - I'll just cancel the DD. Sorted.
    If they want to chase me - they can if they can get that right!!!

    Assuming you returned the V5 to DVSA with the dealers details then it looks like the only way now then is declare sorn on the dealers forecourt when you drop off.

    Maybe I am being thick but I don't understand the problem. You return the V5 to Swansea with a claim for refund of tax (VED) and it comes back. You do only get complete months worth, and at the 12 month, not the six month, rate. But I've done this many times, never had a problem. I have always sent off my claim immediately, though.

    Looking forward to receiving a cheque back for VED from my £480/yr Saab I sold last week. Took a photo of the V5 after completion by myself and buyer with date on it. My understanding is refund of FULL months remaining from date of sale.

    Well you started it so !!!
    Yes, you are either being thick or amazingly naive
    People are sending the docs in on time and the DVLA then sit on them for SEVERAL WEEKS !
    When they finally get around to paying up you get paid from the date they deal with the paperwork, NOT THE DATE RECEIVED the docs

    It happened to me on the van and has happened to a chap I bought a bike from in October.
    He just got the tax back from the 1st of December
    The DVLA are making a total killing on the whole deal

    I suspect things will get better as time goes by but at the moment they do not have the staff, the resources or the drive to get the mess under control

    As well as alerting all the MHF members it might be a good idea to get your MP on the case.

    Not my experience.

    I changed my van last april and went through the procedure. Yes it took them about 5 weeks to process but the refund was from the date the old van ceased to be mine, so the only loss to me was the 3 weeks to take it to a month boundary. I changed my car a few months earlier and had the same experience. Perhaps I am filling the forms in correctly!

    And I do not take kindly to such an abusive post. But I will not sink to your level in a response.
