    :cry:Just received my v11 form from dvla as this will be my first time to tax my m/h as it was taxed by the dealer when purchased from them. I have just noticed it is registered as plg and as the m/h is a hobby toscana 750elc tag the weight is 4500kg. It should be phgv. Need to take steps tomorrow to put things right. Others may want to check their V5 doc?:cry:

    A useful reminder to all....

    The dealers often cock registrations up! Our Transit had a 24 litre engine for a while!

    As I have posted on another thread, this is still ongoing with us.

    V5C arrived back from Swansea and my name was incorrectly spelled.
    Thought that I would check for other mistakes and found that my three axles had turned into two and the weight had dropped from 5000kg to 4005kg. The colour had also changed from Silver/White to Grey.

    This has been ongoing since August and we still haven't had a new V5C from Swansea, despite many e-mails and a visit to our local DVLA office.

    Hard luck if I am going abroad eh ! :Angry:

    And I thought it was Rolls Royce who developed the 24ltr Merlin engine, not Ford. :Doh:

    On the subject of road tax.
    I have just signwritten a customers 17 tonne 6 wheel truck with annual mileage of 76,000. It has the Euro 5 engine and his road tax is £260 per annum. My Renault Master Euro 5 weighs 3850 kgs and I cover about 7500 miles, cost £165.
    Whoever worked out these taxation classes and weights must be without a culculator or on commission!!!!

    Hi there,

    I am surprised that they have not asked you to present the vehicle for their inspection. I was asked to do this by the P/boro DVLA office, after contacting Swansea about details on the V5 not appertaining to the vehicle. I pointed out that their car park wasn't large enough for me to present my vehicle, and that I wasn't prepared to pay for 3 x on road parking bays. I managed to entice the inspector out to the house with the promise of coffee and biscuits. :Wink:
    Upon arrival, he took one look at the axle configuration, and immediately knew what needed to be done. All was sorted out within a few days, as was a refund of overpaid duty, and a new RFL for a PHG. Very efficient indeed. :thumb:

    Good luck with your ongoing saga.

    Cheers,

    Jock.

    We have a diesel Peugeot 308 car - £30 tax, great.

    Can't understand why our Peugeot Partner van (small) has the same engine as the car but is £215 to tax. :Sad:

    I have all of the relevant paperwork from the manufacturer, complete with chassis numbers etc, and specification sheet with axle loads, spacing etc.
    They will have to come and visit me if it comes to that as there is no room at my local DVLA either. I believe it is closed down now anyway.

    Keeping my fingers crossed, but not hopeful of an early(ish) outcome. :helpsos:

    the reason that the post about two vehicles being different duty with same engine is probably that one is registered before 2001, and one after. After then you pay duty according to emissions. This does annoy me a bot with my vehicles, which are all older ones, but run on biodiesel that gives practically no harmful emissions, but as others have said, be thankful we can still make 2500 litres a year for our own use with out duty. Since our DVLC office moved from Leeds centre to great new place out of town with ample free parking, the service has improved dramatically aswell. you go to a primary desk first, who take all your details, then you sit and wait for a cubicle to shout for you. They have everything needed then to sort you quickly. On my last visit to change our car to invalid status, it was 25 minutes from entering to leaving. In the old one you could queue for up to three hours, and then ages at the desk. Not changing motorhomes to private heavy goods is a common oversight, and I cant believe the previous owners of ours have paid full up over the last 22yrs, but as said, this is a common thing motorhome users overlook.

    Just had an e-mail from Swansea saying that they have received my info and V5C for corrections and have forwarded it to the Vehicle Customer Services section for investigation.

    Great, they told me that weeks ago, so I am no further forward. :Angry:

    Hi. If you're referring to my post about the Peugeot car and Peugeot van, the car is 2009 and the van is 2011. Still makes no sense to me. :Doh:
