    Vehicle : Insignia VX-line RED Tourer

    Trim : No, over weight!

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    Default Just had a mad couple of hours !!!

    Just remembered i hadn't sorted my road tax out for the next 12 months !

    Panic ....!!!!!!!!
    Found my MOT but not my insurance cert, so quick thinking ... need to go online and do it.

    Logged into DVLA and message came up as down for essential site maintenance !!!! Oh blummin' great, now what do i do ?

    Phone call to Adrian Flux and they emailed my insurance details so i could print them off.

    Came to print only to find the kids had used all the printer paper ! Oh just perfect !

    So raced down to Staples and got a new pack. Sorted.

    Sorted MY AR5E !!! They'd run the printer out of ink aswell !!!

    Back down to Staples for emergency ink purchase !!!

    Now all sorted and legal from tomorrow.

    DVLA site down due to striking public sector workers !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Glad you got it sorted mate.
    I have been in the exact same situation about 4 months ago when we onyl had one car.
    Remembered on the way to work (on a bus) that I dont recall buying my tax. So I gets off the bus and called the wife, who confirmed my horror!!!

    Anyway, rushed around and got it sorted, but it was 11 days over!!!!

    PHEW!

    As for the red statement above - I thought the whole idea of an online facility was so that you dont need people to process it for you? That is a CR4P service some something that meant to be automated and simplify things!!

    !! ULTIMATE FAIL !!

    I never realised why the site was down until someone in the post office que mentioned it to another guy who was in taxing his car.
    But my thoughts were the same about the online facility !
