WTF does this lot mean?

•Brand new vehicle (annual incl. ISC x 1) - £325

•New Application (annual incl. full test + ISC x 1) - £325 (less than 5 years old)

•Renewal Application (annual incl. full test + ISC x 1) - £381 (less than 5 years old)

the renewal is the same as a new application, but costs more?

It might help if we knew what ISC was.

It can't be International Seismological Centre, nor Internet Scrabble Club, so what could it be.

Sometimes around here (I know Solihull do it), if you present a brand new vehicle they don't require a vehicle test of any sort, but I don't think that helps.

I've got it now!

I've been on their various web pages & ISC means Interim Safety Check.

So my guess is;

Brand new vehicle (annual incl. ISC x 1) - £325 = no vehicle test at first licensing, hence lowere fee, but ISC x 1, probably at six months.

New Application (annual incl. full test + ISC x 1) - £325 (less than 5 years old) = Don't make sense, unless they give you a concessionary (free) test at first licensing a vehicle other than brand new.

Renewal Application (annual incl. full test + ISC x 1) - £381 (less than 5 years old) = annual test, plus ISC x 1, hence higher fee due to vehicle inspection at time of licensing.

That's the best I can do.

The guy at Coventry is a bit of a snob. Are you having difficulty there?

Couldnt find it on their website, but I have the minutes of a meeting from March last year which show the new fees and a defeat for a certain Mr Fiddler of the NPHA who was reresenting the local association to stop the fees being increased!

I emailed them yesterday, aint had a reply.

Is that legal :? It surely can't cost £25.00 to type a letter unless of course they are using the same printer as the banks :roll:

I'd say it was dubious, the cost of administration is supposed to be in the license fee, it aint an optional extra!

That needs to be passed on to Paul at the DfT, so he can write to said council and get them to refund every penny they have illegally fined.
