Angry F*c*ing Useless Dvla



I got back from work today to find 2 letters from the DVLA both of them are fines for not renewing my sorn, the best part is that i didnt recieve a reminder to say that the last sorn was ending. I called the customer lack of service and when i finally got through they told me the reminder was a courtesy letter and not a legal requirement i.e im screwed. So now a have a fine of over 100. I have a few bikes at the min and these 2 are projects which have been sorned for the last 2 years and if they would have sent the remider they would have been this year aswell im fuming to say the least. It really pisses me off as i am always taxed, moted, and insured on any vehicle i use and always renew sorn when i recieve a F*ck*ng remider, ok my bitching finished but what a joke!

Seems to be a common thing at present. I know a fair few people with SORNed vehicles that didn't get a reminder. Maybe it's one of those "free money for the Government" loopholes.

I dont see why you cant just apply for a sorn once and then tell them when you want to return the vehicle back to the road, instead of this 12 month bulls*it

yep , and as we can see this is why they do it , you forget about the SORN for a year , they dont remind you like they do when the tax is nearly out and then fine you .

Wish my business was that well thought out at making a quick buck , robbin geets

Nope, your wrong, sorn is like a tax disc, when it runs out they must send you a renewal
to either re sorn or tax it

This happened to loads of people in the Northwest area a couple of years back. When it was investigated, it turned out that they weren't reaching their quota or something so they omitted to send out reminders for sorn & tax to see if they could make it up in fines.
