DVLA t

Listening to the news

DVLA is so far back in attending to enquiries and in keeping up with their work

I really doubt they will deal with our request regarding Alberts eyesight anytime this year

Until then our van continues to sit on the drive as it has for well over a year

It’s no longer insured , we’ve paid over £400 pound for it to sit on the drive

This year another £400 except we decided not to pay it

Waiting for the DVLA I recon it could be another year at least before we can drive it again

Selling it becomes a more attractive proposition

No relief I am sure but;

https://www.gbnews.uk/news/dvla-to-b...cations/110978

The Government is being blamed for its handling of the dispute over Health and Safety and CoVid;

https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/n...-40518705.html

Interesting that that link is from the Belfast Telegraph, the dispute seems to have been ignored by mainland media.

Another, perhaps clearer, account;

https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/3...vid-disruption

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Dave I doubt we will be going any where for at least another year

Phone they are too busy to answer

Email they are too busy to answer

They really need to up their game , track and trace is the problem?

They answered nothing well before track and trace got going

At least we are not paying insurance for the van stood on the drive as it has for two years now , it looks like we will make it three

Agree and IMO it’s totally indefensible, indefensible by the Management who ordinarily would struggle organising a drinking session in a brewery, indefensible by HMG who seemed to have suddenly said “NO” in exactly the same way as they did with the action by medical staff. An agreement has been reached, then its pulled away by HMG’s political head.

I can understand the Union grievances - from what I have read elsewhere the conditions are conducive to the spread of CoVid and they are not ALLOWED to work from home.

Wasn’t it Boris who said “wherever possible work from home” ?

Except in this case it is not permitted and you all have to come in and work together, closely.

I wonder if you would get a faster response writing to the DVLA Sandra. It does seem somewhat ridiculous.

DVLA does not do ANYTHING fast, except maybe passing on your details to car parking companies.

If you worked there, would you admit to it?

To be fair to the DVLA, I reported some inaccuracies with the new registration document for our new motorhome using their on-line application, the new, correct document was received on the Saturday following the Tuesday it was reported. I'd say that's pretty good really.

Albert filled in all documentation , and payed the fees to apply for his licence, chased it up several times,
A YEAR later he was requested to re submit all the documentation, re pay all GP fines, months later again he was required to be retested at Specsavers and several months later his license refused

Meanwhile his consultant was monitoring his glaucoma and had decided it was now time to deal with the cataract and whist at it insert a drain to relieve pressure in his glaucoma.

He preformed the DVLA test , gave Albert a copy of the results and told Albert to write to the DVLA , give his name for reference if needed and send the test results

Which we did and have heard nothing , tried phoning and emailing no response

So not sure what else we could do

So, it appears they are concentrating on the “easy” ones, and just letting the more complex ones amass. That is their way of massaging the figures to make things look better than they actually are.

Not sure that is the best way to carryon, someone has to have told them to do that.

Sandra, I would contact your MP with copies of ALL documentation so that they can carry it forward, it is NOT an acceptable way of dealing with issues and is very poor service to an elderly citizen. Albert is presumably “off the road” until they reissue his licence.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

No he’s not off the road Dave , hie eyesight was good enough to drive a car, but not to drive 3850 MH

We could reduce it and get rid of the tow bar , but then we couldn’t r transport the tricycle

And we would be back to me having no transport on site , both of us now poor at walking , he has an electric bike , my balance isn’t good so I have an electric tricycle

It’s two years old now and I can’t transport it to a safe place to learn to ride it , I wouldn’t feel safe on a busy main road , I doubt I ever would

So that’s a couple of thousand to add to the wasted insurance
