I recall it was silver, can't remember the reg, thought someone down the South West managed to get it legal somehow.

I recall it well. Yes it was down Portsmouth way as I recall. I had done a provisional deal by phone to buy it but I was suspicious of the grinding on the inner wing in the photos. It was Chris Valentine that made me aware of its questionable history

Back to the original issue here... Hampshire Police have an active FB page so you could contact them that way. After all, if this isn't down to a simple clerical error it must involve some sort of criminal activity so their Road Policing Unit should be interested in confirming (or not) your car's identity

I fear they will not be interested unless there is some concern of a crime being committed. Car identity theft. Fraud. Certainly suggesting a DVLA admin error will not be a reason to investigate

That's how I'm thinking... as DVLA haven't found an obvious error at their end criminal activity is quite possible

Thank you to everyone who has given me pointers on how to get this issue resolved :smile:

I managed to speak to someone at the DVLA who really wanted to help and after a few phone calls everything was resolved and the car is now taxed and not marked as scrapped.

They also gave me information on the correct form to send in to request the details on who made the initial mistake - It was a failing at the recycling centre that scrapped a car and gave incorrect information to the DVLA.

It's been a stressful few weeks but can now look forward to the ongoing project of making her a good solid daily driver :grin:

Great news.

What a hassle through no fault of your own.

Just to show this isn't a one off issue at the DVLA, when I was selling my N/A last year the eventual buyer requested a new MOT which I had done. Another interested party then asked why the car had no previous MOT history. It turned out the MOT testing station had input a 0 instead of an O (or visa versa) and instead of the database rejecting it, a totally new MOT identity was created and all the old history lost. As I had sold the car I didn't follow that issue any further.
Unfortunately, that wasn't the only problem the sale threw up. I had decided to keep the registration number but when I went on line it wouldn't accept the retention as it said there was no age related plate available to issue so I would have to do the process via the post. As there wasn't enough time to get the V5 back before the buyer collected the car I chose (on advice from the DVLA) to do the retention at the same time as I informed them of the change of ownership. Simples! Except the DVLA the sent a retention certificate to BOTH me and the now owner!
I haven't yet tried to put the number on my 'S' but I'm sure I'm into an interesting experience when I do.
