    Useless DVLA ( Thereís a surprise )

    So I see a 38 yr old car that I want to buy up North thatís on SORN but obviously I would want to test drive it so the guy takes it off SORN and and taxes it on the 29th of June . I take a train up on the Ist of July with the car insurance in my name and buy the car . I drive it home working on the assumption that any ANPR camera will see itís still taxed and then park it in garage . Parked up in garage I do not tax car or SORN car but when V5 comes through I then use the 16 digit number to SORN car . Then 2 weeks later I then tax car on line .
    Then I receive a TAX refund cheque made out to me for his tax refund , as I am away for a few days my wife has banked it . Oops
    How did this all happen itís not rocket science and now what ?

    I bought a modern car , guy before me had taxed it . Cos it was a couple of days into month I then had to tax it in my name . I sold it within that month and new guys had to tax it as well. We had all 'used' it none of us got refunds ...nice little earner eh ?

    I also bought a car a couple of years ago, and I also received the seller's tax refund - maybe it's when the seller notifies DVLA the same day online, so everything is instantly in the new keeper's name?

    (By the way, I did pay the seller their refund )
    Screw EU

    Yes, nice little earner. It's got to be illegal to charge for the same thing twice ?? Label it as an admin cost would be acceptable. My previous local MP didn't want to bring the matter up in the House.
