Re: Got a Freestyle Buggy at last!

Well done, DVLA or DSA or whatever the chickens like to call themselves this week, are a nightmare to deal with unless you get the right person who actually knows what they are talking about, I am led to believe they use agency staff & flowcharts which is great for normal stuff but not kit cars...

Oh wait that can't be right, he's got a restricted license he can't tow a trailer unless he takes a test & we all know he has an aversion to putting in for a test ;D ;D

Oh I believe he did go sideways just no through anything this time, but weather was great expect the last 100 or so miles. There is a rumour that Max is going to join us in 2030 he's going to be towing his part built behind his electric car on a trailer.
