General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
I had the same problem with the DVLA, as in no cheque book, when I sent off for a tachograph driver card, £32 and the DVLA don't take electronic payments, I went to Winstanley Post Office, where they said we are closing down, and we have no postal orders left, and they said Clap Gate Lane, Post Office did not doo them, so they said try Asda, and this was at the height of the recent wave of the covid, and I am queuing up in Asda Post Office, and I was pooing meself in case I caught it
At the counter the woman said I have no postal orders left, and looked at me as though I was stupid, but her colleague to one side said that she had some, and she said " is it for the DVLA" to which I said of course "yes" so she printed the recipient name on the thing.
You can pay your car tax to the DVLA by card, but it seems nowt else, and I am really unimpressed with that, especially as yon government as been encouraging electronic payments for well over a year now.
