Re: SORN scammers

Whilst I can appreciate it borderline scamming, as they possibly do offer a "service", they have deliberately impersonated the DVLA website and even appear above the legit DVLA listing in a Google search. After yet another 1 hr 10 mins stuck on hold trying to speak with Lloyds Credit cards...

There was no apparent link to the SORN section of the Gov website, so I did a quick Google and followed the link to what I believed was the Gov DVLA website. It looked pr...

SORN scammers

I'm sure many of you will believe you'd never fall for such a scam, but I just did :( The tax falls due on two of my vehicles at the end of the month.

Re: New Owner

I simply polish the alloy on mine once or twice a year, by hand, using Autosol (or similar) metal polish. If the wheel paintwork is OK, a little car wax polish keeps them looking good.

Re: UK Census form

Thanks for the heads-up. As I'm currently overseas, it may be touch and go that I actually receive the letter in time to be able to fill it in online!
