Yep but then again , university students have no fees to pay in Scotland

Prescriptions free

Their decision but are we not paying towards it ?

Iíd like our kidís university to be free, our prescriptions free

Are they managing their money better

It seems they must have more to play with

You know you can SORN it at any point in the tax year? It's very easy to do online and is effective from that date. It's also pretty much instantaneous to reinstate the tax (which is effective from the 1st of the month in which you tax it.)

Yes we know that Jean , but as our van is over 3.5 our tax is much reduced

Never really understood why, we wouldn't save much on a whole year

Iím hoping it wonít take that long for DVLA to reinstate our license but going on past dealings with them I think they will have us jumping through hoops

It took over twelve months from applying and filling in all the relevant forms for them to finally refuse to renew the license ,having failed to refuse it on the grounds that Albert had cancer,as Alberts consultant at Christies challenged their decision that the melanoma which is in remission could spread to his brain, and pointed out he has 6 monthly scans ,they then requested a further eye tests, which he had already passed on his original application twelve months earlier

Good job they donít consider that as we age our chances of a stroke or heart attack rise or non of us would have a license to drive

Iím sure Covid had some effect on the process and Iím guessing it still will, so we will have to wait and see

It will be good to get the van back on the road, if only to make a few local trips , we wonít go far now with Shadow , but we need it to transport the tricycle to where I can practise

So fingers and everything crossed
