Vehicle was untaxed and parked directly outside a property I own on an unadopted road [confirmed by checking council database]. For clarity it was on the road, not on my drive [I don't have one lol].

I had sent off SORN ages ago.

Vehicle was clamped and then lifted [I don't live there and was out of the country at the time.

I paid up and vehicle was returned to me.

I rang to dispute with the DVLA and they said it wasn't declared sorn and so their subcontractors could lift it [which I understand to be factually correct].

However my position is that I sent them the sorn via the paper and post system and they lost it, so I want a full refund. I believe people have proved that there is no legal requirement for us to contact DVLA if no sorn certificate received [which is what they told me I should have done....].

Would welcome your thoughts on all of this...

Thanks in advance

Obviously I shall be ensuring I definitely have a SORN in place going forward [it's free and easy so crazy not to do it]

I'm not actually suggesting that it's within the curtilage....I asking if it can be considered to be 'within the vicinity of' [as per the regs] ?? It obviously touches the property along a length...is that 'within the vicinity of'??

Does anyone else ever drive along that part of the road, or park on it?

I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law.

Deffo not in the last two years...but it's always been 'our parking spaces [can hold two cars] and has 'please don't park here, residents only' on the railings beaide it.....but I suppose in theory that it's available to anyone if we don't have our cars on there.
