Does anyone know a phone number that will get me through to a manager, or someone who knows what they are talking about, at the DVLA.
I bought a car back in March this year.
It has a private number plate on it that the original owner wanted to keep.
No problems so far. I don't want that number.
He sent off all the documentation back in late March to do the change of ownership and transfer the number.
I have phoned him a few weeks ago to find out what is happening as I have not heard anything and tax is due tomorrow on this car.
Turns out DVLA or Royal Mail have lost the documents.
I can't tax the car 'cos I have no documents.
Previous owner can't tax the car 'cos he has no documents and also he no longer has insurance for it.
DVLA said I can't drive the car from tomorrow as it wont be taxed and it could take up to four weeks for me to get new documents.
I want to go on holls in 9 days time.
There must be someone I can speak to who can get this sorted.
I'm surely not the first person this has happened to.
