Logbook problems!

#1
I brought a car with no logbook or green slip (I know very stupid and I will never do it again) I sent off a v62 to dvla, and I am still waiting for logbook to come. I have rang and rang dvla and they have said it was being processed. I have now been told by dvla that there is a discrepancy on the records! Does anyone know what that could mean?? I have paid the £20 for a full check on the vehicle and everything is fine, not stolen, not reported for theft, no finance outstanding, so god only knows what could be wrong, but dvla will not tell me what the problem is!! The car ran out of tax 4 weeks ago so I am stuck without a car.

would anyone know what the problem could be??
thanks

Sounds like your motor might have been an insurance write off at some stage of its life.

You may be required to take your vehicle into a VOSA centre to have its identity verified.

It is a ball ache and it does cost.

The rac check (£15.50) i did on the vehicle all came back clear of any accidents losses etc. so I don't think the problem could be there. The check was totally clear of everything the vin number matches the vrm which is good news. I just wish dvla could give out answers!

It's stolen most likely (a ringer). Plod will be around soon to take it off your hands. And you will have lost all your cash.

Oh dear. (Hence the lack of telling you what the problem is so you don't torch it quick like.........).

But the car check I did, came back as not being stolen or reported as theft, and the vin matches the vrm, so not sure if it stolen as the rac check said it wasn't?

so sue the RAC for the price of your car and all assosiated costs, inluding the check in the first place.
Wouldn't that be just great? A pound to a pinch of sh*t that in the small print there is a clause that they cannot be held responsible for inaccurate information. Of course, that you had paid for such a check and are going to rely on it won't count for poo.

You'll end up with two V5s in the post tomorrow, knowing how totally totally useless the cretinous edifice that the DVLA has become is - its now staffed exclusively by mongs. Can you guess that I've just had four court cases against them [and won!] - MONGS!!!!

No chance, the T&C's are not going to be in the OP's favour

Below are a few key quotes from the RAC website regarding T&C's on Car checks

I hope so as I have a car on my drive that I can't do anything with :-/

Just don't go confusing large with efficient - they're friggin useless, just keep at them. I find visiting one of their local DVLA Offices in person can be useful. Where you based and find your nearest?
 
#18
Yes someone else has said to me about visiting the local dvla office, I think I may have to the nearest offices to me would be Worcester or Shrewsbury. Why can't dvla give any Answers out over the phone?

Lost my logbook earlier in the year took about a month to arrive after handing in the paper work at the local DVLA office so expect delays. At least its off the road hope you sorned it

But I have been waiting 8 weeks now, as it should take 6-8 weeks, but I have been told there is a discrepancy on the records whatever that means? No I haven't sorned it as the car has never been in my name yet so I have had no tax/sorn reminder.
