Well after much sleeping and ignoring my illegal car it suddenly came to me in a dreamy sort of way when I was half asleep that I'd swept a lot of paperwork into a wooden box (currently buried under washing and ironing). Eureka! MOT certificate........No logbook though. This I know I posted at the same time as my licence to change the address, they obviously never got it, hence no reminder. However I did find the duplicate logbook (I thought I'd lost it last year and blamed them saying they never posted it so got it for free, then found it oops) and managed to pay £165 for a full year's tax, THEN realised it would go to my old address.
Just on the phone now!
Oo a helpful lady who's putting a copy in the post having checked address details are correct and should be here tomorrow. Phew. Gawd what a drama. Also the lovely DVLA people said I need to write to Peterborough office and give my reasons for not having taxed my vehicle (errr I was waiting to find out if I had a life threatening illness, yup I have) and they would reply back. If they fine me anything but the actual back dated tax I'm taking it to EVERY single local paper and anyone who'll listen grrrr. Wouldn't mind but they have my new address with my licence so they could have cross checked and done the maths with a warning letter - I thought they were supposed to have some whizzy new computer system that knew EVERYTHING? I'm getting my bestest pen and paper out for grovelling letter now........
