DVLA and vehicle history

Post by GeoffD » Thu Oct 01, 2020 7:24 pm

Just wasted half a day trying to contact the DVLA, to get the ownership history for my Classic, only to be told that due to compliance with the Eurpean Data Protection Act, they can no longer issue details of a vehicles previous ownership.
What a pity they do not have the same reluctance when it come to serlling our details to pivate car park firms.
So it looks like we can no longer put a history together for our classic vehicles.
Don't you just love bureaucracy!

Speaking of the dvla, I could not Sorn my two long standing bikes I have tried several times. I suused somthing changed and have now sornd both bikes the other week.

one wonders why the change are the Dvla gong to start selling of reg numbers that have never been taxed or sorn since the scheam came in.
