It can be done but costs the VC5 has to be changed and the VC5 class to PLG from disabled too this costs £25 also the DLA 404 Disabled Tax Exemption certificate sent back to Blackpool cost was £25 ish could have gone up now

But soon as you park away from home you might be spotted by blue disk in car unless thats going back too ?


Hi Dave,

Are your comments relating to WPMS, or DLA, with regard to the £25 fee?.

cheers

Having just spoken to Alan at the DVLA Exemption Unit, there is no charge (other than the cost of buying the relevant plg excise licence) if one surrenders ones disabled exemption.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for clarifying this for the members.

The reason that I posed my question to Dave, was that I had encountered this scenario personally, and there was no charge.

It is good that we have such reassuring givers of facts, such as yourself, and the other Mods.

cheers

I thought £25 use to be the charge when a car with free tax disc was no longer being used by a person who is disabled be it DLA or WP this would be none diisability car but one where the registered class has been changed from disabled to private goods light or PLG

this would happen when someone dies and the car is going back to normal use

just looked into it and that was not charged for change of group but for change of plates as myself and all other ex forces use to use own plates

:blush: thats now £80 direct :)

Thank you

Thanks for your admission of an error here Dave.

I totally understand that you are trying to help, but you must realise how potentially damaging errant information can be to members who have little knowledge about the subject that they are posting about.

As a new Mod, I try and stick to answering things that I am sure about, if I'm not sure, then I will leave it to one of the other Mods.

As I have said I understand that you are offering opinions with the best of intentions, but please be careful about the advice that you give.

Best wishes
