Before you get into the meat of this post I am aware that I am a grade one nugget for not reading BFG standing orders, relying on hearsay and procastinating. That aside, here is my question guys. I have a car that I drove back to the UK over the christmas period. Sadly the car decided to throw several important pieces across the motorway and I had to get it recovered to my parents house. After getting a few quotes for the work it turned out to be costly so I decided to store the car in parents garage until funds would be available to carry out the repairs. On my return to Germany I discovered, joy of joys, that I would be posted back to the UK. Worrying I had about 3 weeks to sort my life out before the move and the car took a back seat a little. I would have been more concerned but after a discussion that night in the mess is seemed that I would be able to de-register the car from the UK...deepjoy. What I failed to realise was that the cat requires a current BFG Roadworthy ticket to be able to de-reg. On my return to the UK I sorted the quarter out, got booked in, saved money and carried out the work on the car. It now seems that I will be in the brown stuff as I will be unable to de-reg car in the normal way. Havent contacted the BFG office as yet. Before I do does anyone out there have any advice (apart from the afore mentioned) that might help take some of the sting out of the slap I am about to recieve. Thanks for your time and please try to keep any rants on my stupidity to a minimum of say...200 words or less.
