No, this is nothing to do with a TV footie programme.
DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency) are on the ball and paperwork regarding cars old and new are flying through the mail.
Yesterday I got my new owners registration document and noticed that the Post Office had not removed the DISABLED category from the document, despite us saying that as the new owners it was no longer a mobility scheme vehicle.
So we had to leg it up to the Post Office up the road before they closed to get it sorted.
Luckily I had all the other new documents (insurance, MOT and receipt proof that we had taxed it on Monday before coming home) and the cashier who served me was very helpful. This in itself is unusual as they are normally a miserable bunch here, but then this was a new face. It was easy enough to rectify and cost me 30p for an envelope as I already had a first class stamp. I should get my revised new document in about 4 weeks (and this one only took three days?).
Today, we have had yet more correspondence from the DVLA, this time them paying us as road tax can no longer be transferred with the vehicle when sold on. The road tax on the I10 was horrendous** and you get a refund for each full calendar month remaining. For us, this was four months, so a third of twenty quid (**well it is Fibbing Friday) equates to £6.66. Hubby and I will have to go to a bank to deposit it, so field trip on Monday!
I wonder what will we treat ourselves to with this new found wealth?
