Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

Did they say how long it is taking at the moment? I sent my pack as tracked signed for so I know they had it on the 9th April, no change in tax status on the DVLA website as yet. I don't expect anything too fast and have to have an op next week so will not be able to drive it for a few weeks but it ...

Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

They do seem have made it all as obscure as possible when it should be easy. Mine is currently SORN and I have sent the pack of forms to DVLA so will see what happens. If necessary I will tax for a month and then cancel it once it is registered as tax free but I hope there will not be a problem as i...

Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

No, but I sent it to DVLA with the pack as CKS responded to an FB thread and said including it meant it was kept on the record for the future and therefore would not be required each year - if I understood correctly.

Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

My first Historic too but mine is a little different in that it is currently MOT'd (until 27th November '21). However, I thought you had to give them a V112 to confirm it was MOT exempt? Seems a bit daft self certifying it but DVLA do love their forms!

Re: Anyone recognise this part?

Images not showing. Not sure I recall any detachable white plastic parts though apart from the central lens housing (I think).

Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

Do they actually change the MOT record if it is exempt? I had assumed it would just show the last MOT whenever, not sure if it would show as Expired or Exempt at the top though if it was not done in the last year. I would plan to have one every year or two dependent on use just to check underneath a...

Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

Took my pack of forms into the main PO locally today and they didn't seem to have a clue. Just kept telling me they could not tax it as Historic as it was not classed as Historic on the website. Tried to explain that that was what I wanted them to do but did not seem to speak the same language. :rol...

Re: Gear stick gaiter 'grommet'

I got one turned from Delrin (a black engineering plastic) from one of the American suppliers some years ago. I remember someone here supplying something similar or in aluminium (might rattle against the stick but nice and silver) but cannot remember who it was. Suggest you try a query on the FB Tri...

Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

OK, I am in the same position as my car is currently SORN. Maybe I will leave it until April 1st (probably still make a fool of myself).

Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

Seems to be some differing opinions, some say the PO is OK if the V5 shows registration at an acceptable date (ie in 1980), but not if the build date is used. Others say the PO can handle it either way. Similar with dates, some say it can be done at the PO in the last week of March and some that it ...

Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

Received my certificate 2 days ago. The car was registered on 9th March '81 so was pleased to see it had been built on 13th November 1980 so should be tax free. All the spec is just as it is now (although it does not mention the rust but was probably built with it). Just trying to interpret the hoop...

Yes, or use a decent length of 4"x2" across the wings with cloth pads and a rope around the engine!

Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

You need the Heritage certificate to prove it tax free if not relying on the registration date. Not sure about the MOT thing. I think I am 'reasonably competent' having worked on cars for over 50 years but I don't have a lift so inspection of the underside is difficult and some things creep up on yo...
