    VED Refund 6th Sep 17 at 4:09 PM
    I notified DVLA that I my car on Thursday 31st August. Any idea how long it takes to receive the refund of the VED?

    If your refund doesn’t arrive: Contact DVLA if you haven’t got your refund cheque after 6 weeks.
    Surely it doesn't take that long?

    No, it doesn't, in normal conditions. But whenever any organisation quotes a "If you've not heard within..." time, it's always the worst case given.

    I guessed that, hence asking what time frame other forum members had experienced.
