Excellent !
That's a big result - justification for NFU cover not always being cheapest.

Excellent news! It just shows what insurance companies can do when they actually care!

Top marks for the NFU! I am also with the NFU and if they carry on like this, I can see I always will be!

A good result for you then, have a good (work) trip and then it is just pure pleasure from there on with the truck!

I spoke to DVLA today the accident marker has been completely removed. But my application to change it to a motor home now has to go before a panel of “experts”. I asked the person I was talking to “ If you look at the photos I supplied how can it be anything but a motor home” they replied “ I know but the “experts” have to decide...and they can be a bit funny at times”......so just waiting to see what the “experts” decide!
At least its not been crushed!!!!

Well, looking at the positive there re the write-off rating - which is good news. Hope the "experts" see sense now... good luck.

Imagine! You can get paid to be an "expert" motorhome identifier. I think I've found my calling. Though presumably anyone with eyes over the age of 2 would qualify for this job.

No reply from the "experts" yet but I have received a letter from DVLA saying they cant process my request because I havent sent the correct payment and they have sent a V85 form asking me to complete and return , with the correct payment stating if i want 6 or 12 months tax.
Seems strange since i havent received a V5c yet and it hasnt been for an MOT.
Dont know if i should just ask for 12 months tax or call them asking what is happening
The mysterious ways of DVLA!!!

It looks promising, probably best just to do what they ask...
