Neil +1.

And we've not been helped, either, by the bloke who masteminded the 'specialist vehicle' dodge to help owners of T244s in particular to register their lorries without the need for any kind of test by lying about their intended purpose.

Of course, nearly all of these lorries mysteriously morph into motorcaravans - or get sold on as 'unfinished projects' to unsuspecting victims...

It could be a bit of a struggle, this.

You are absolutely right.

We are being shafted from within which doesnt help.

I think too many people have put their heads above the parapit.

FOI Act request sent to DVLA this morning. The full request is long, dull and involved but the salient points (for now) are these specific requests:

1. Under what authority is DVLA lawfully empowered to apply an External Appearance Test in determining the classification of a vehicle?
2. Assuming you have the lawful authority to impose such a requirement, please supply a copy of the policy document to which members of your staff presumably refer when required to consider the External Appearance Test.
3. Please provide a clear and unambiguous list of criteria that need to be satisfied in order that a motorcaravan would pass your External Appearance Test.
