Yesterday I decided to look up the procedure for changing the status of my 1000 SP on the V5c to an Historic Vehicle.  Something cropped up, so I didn’t do it.  This morning I received a new (current) format V5c  which now declares the bike as an Historic Vehicle.  As I’ve yet to receive a tax refund for a Kawasaki I sold in May, together with the leaflet declaring I’m no longer responsible for the bike, I’m impressed that they’re on the ball with this.Thumbs Up

different dept when my V1000 became Historic they were on it I sent the log book details to them 1 month early they just e-mailed to tell me that and did it, for tax refund IF you paid by DDM check bank account they refund directly sometimes their e-mail goes into spam box that is what happened when i swapped the V11 le mans to Cali EV .... and when i sold a car ... did the "swap" online on the day ...

I took the Fanny-B's V5 (plus MoT exempt form etc) to my local post office as instructed - it had been off the road for decades and was last taxed in 1979. They happily taxed it at zero rate but didn't take the V5 off me - which I believe they should have done, and passed it back to DVLA. I'll probably send it off with the new tax class (historic vehicle) when I get round to it....

Today I received a cheque for £51.15 from the DVLA, and I hadn’t even chased them for a refund!!

Not sure if SORN is treated differently as it is off the road

I’d mistakenly taxed the bike for six months, and recently had it MOT’d, so they’ve refunded the full amount. I are quite pleased! For a change!!

Strangely, the local PO taxed my FB (1955) for a year for nowt and didn't want to see the form stating that the MoT was unnecessary. However, I've looked on line and it shows the tax rate as being £44 / year.....

I'll pop the V5C in the post with a covering letter and see what transpires.

Do you still have to tax Historic vehicles, albeit at Zero rate?

My 63-plate Golf 7 is taxable at Zero Rate too, but I have to renew it's RFL at £0.00 every year.  Inscrutable.  Nice too.

But that's only once a year - they can easily look it up online via ASKMID.

And the Police do, but that's the reason given for renewing a zero cost RFL. On more recent vehicles it also checks MOT status.

I suspect it's more to do with not wanting to change computer systems.....
