Taxing bike...

Post  john87 on Mon Aug 07, 2017 7:03 pm

Anyone else had problems with the dvla??

On my V5 [not a week old and in my name at my address] it said "not licenced"

Ok, so i go to the post office and go to tax it. The polish girl behind the counter tells me that the system is saying for me to contact the dvla. I tell her that what is required, is to tax it for me, and then the post office send off the V5 on my behalf, and i get a new one back with "historic vehicle" instead of "not licenced"

Ok, so tax is issued and i get a receipt from the dvla system.

Now, weeks later, no new V5, and the thing still shows as not taxed. You can only contact the dvla by email now, and to say that they are not helpful is an understatement. They are obsessed with what fuel does it run on and engine size. What difference does it make??

Taxing !

John, you are correct in your assumption, The post office should tax it, and send off the logbook to the DVLA as you say, they should also have given you a receipt and let you keep the one half of the document.
These days when you go into the post office you can buy currency, licence everything from cars to fishing, buy pet insurance, draw your pension, but the one thing they constantly fail at is their core business postage !
If you need to reapply for a "lost" logbook with V62 form , there is no fee, if you still have the new Keepers part of the document

Hi John,

You are exactly right, that is what they did, i still have the one half of the logbook and the receipt too, but the DVLA have not updated their records OR sent me a new logbook either.

Not sure what i should do now...

Email the DVLA attach  photo of receipt and new keepers supplement and wait, do not expect a reply soon.
Technically you have taxed it and have a receipt for the tax, whether PC49 will go along with this is another matter, as the plod is not the most intelligent creature, best to keep the receipt in your wallet just in case?

Generally I have found DVLA to be
a very helpful
b confused and ignorant

it just depends on who deals with the enquiry , like most things

Hi John,

Yes, i sent them a scan of the receipt and the bit of the V5 too. it was only issued about a week before i went to tax the thing. It is the "free" bike that Ian Thornton gave me the other week that i am sorting!!
