    Re: Cat C write off - VIC Check? Help!

    Do you have the V5? (log book)

    It would have the date on it when it was vic tested and put back on the road, if not and the dealer managed to tax it for you then it must have been written off between you buying it and it getting taxed and the time you've had the letter.

    no we got the green slip from the dealer, sent it off to the dvla who said it could not issue a v5 until a vic check had been completed.... shall wait and c what dan digs up.... either way Harris of Wakefield will be getting a visit.

    Re: Cat C write off - VIC Check? Help!

    Interesting indeed.

    As I understand it when a car going to be written off as a Cat C you have to surrender your tax (for a refund) and the log book and MOT become 'invalid'

    From here the insurance company will give the car to a salvage management company of some sort who will sell the car on for them.

    Next someone comes along and buys the car, upon purchase you get no log book, no tax and no MOT. The car will then be repaired, you can drive the car to an MOT station then and get it MOT'd (it must have an MOT for the VIC) Once MOT'd you call up the place that does the VIC - can't remember what its called - and they will tell you if it needs one. Not all Cat C's need VIC's its just a sample (every 1 in X)

    You will then have to apply for a VIC (Vehical Identity Check) - a common misconseption with this is that it checks the repair quality it DOES NOT it is simply to check that stolen parts were not used to repair the car. From here you will be issued with a new log book (stamped with CAT C in the notes section on the front page - See photo below)

    At this point you can then Tax the car.

    And Dan, I guess you haven't heard from your man at Trading Standards yet?

    So how did they tax it without a logbook or a vic check?

    Re: Cat C write off - VIC Check? Help!

    Check the date on your tax disc, it'll tell you if they did tax it that day or if it's from 6 months earlier it came with the car.

    It sounds like they've done wrong and if you approach them right will/should be very helpfull, they'll not want to have done anything wrong/illegal

    Might be worth doing one of these https://www.mycarcheck.com/ cheap car checks, 4.99 it'll tell you when it was wrote off.

    Do they actually have to scan the green slip? If not i'm guessing thats how they've taxed it.

    Do you know when it was crashed? How long does the tax have left?

    Could it be tax that it had before it was crashed?

    Re: Cat C write off - VIC Check? Help!

    It could also be a mistake with the DVLA records, come across that plenty of times during my trading days!! Hope you get it sorted one way or another mate..........

    The car deffo had no tax when we came to view it. They put on a fresh 6 months the day we bought it. We even had to wait while he went to the post office to do it ha ha

    So it's been written off since you bought it.

    Was it damaged/dented when you bought it? freshly painted?

    DVLA can take some time before updating their register so it is possible it was taxed before the register was updated, it is also possible they have made a msiatke about the requirement of a VIC check, they have made many mistakes in the past!!

    But not with it's original ID, you would not have been able to get a V5.
