They are neighbours na ... How come he didn't negotiate out of the pocket fix? Those who ain't neighbours self they arrange and skip insurance knowing well the consequences after.

My sister na so we see am o. It happened or happening to my brother.

He moved here with his family late 2019 and as a family of 5 up north, we thought having a car was necessary now (probably wished we waited now grin).

He got his car shortly before the pandemic and got his insurance with go girl with his naija licence. As expected he couldn't renew or attend any exam for his practical exam due to cancellation and no date available and DVLA granted10months extension till October 2021 which he thought it will be sufficient to pass.

During this time, go girl renewed his insurance automatically but unknowingly to us a Provisional Licence supersedes your international licence. Na so he lost control during that yeye february snow to go hit his neighbours car and then insurance got involved and its been one mayhem to another. They cancelled his premium and then after a while demanded the balance of his insurance and now we got bills totalling £9800 that they incurred on fixing the other car.

The annoying thing it was just a minor dent to the fender and the car is a 2011 ford worth £2,900 (according to the insurance coy). So how they spent almost £10k fixing it is beyond me.


i thought we hammered on the bolded in the past.

sometimes its cheaper to just buy a new car rather than do some repairs. Plus you will be paying for the car repairs, i am sure the neighbour was given a replacement/rental vehicle while his car was in the shop, you will be paying for that too.

And all these shops know how to delay repairs and inflate figuresnespecially when insurance companies is involved.

Doctor-in-training is NOT allowed for a tier-4. visa holder.
You mean he trained in Ukraine. No licence to practice yet, then the UK allows him to just do housemanship in their country?

Besides, you seriously think he can simultaneously combine an MSc program with a housemanship?
If I were you, I would follow what @ sgtponzihater1 has said, very meticulously.

He/she who has ears to hear, let them hear what the spirit is telling the church.

They very rarely listen - especially those that relocate with kids.

As soon as they arrive, they are already shopping for cars with 100k plus mileage to buy.

I understand that but if they don't get the case on your side then you will end up paying more than £10k.

Sorry to hear this.. Getting a lawyer involved will cause more harm than good. It’s best your brother seats down with the insurance company and workout something. He might end up not paying the entire 10k. If it goes to court he’ll have to pay there cost as well as his legal fees if he doesn’t win. I don’t see any grounds for argument wit the insurance company. Just try negotiate and ask them to reduce the price. And set up a payment plan. That’s the only way out I think. But I might be wrong

@ ocpaschal

I am curious why your relative has failed to come on this website to ask pertinent questions about his upcoming medical career. Why are you the middleman? Given that medical school programs are challenging and time-consuming, but your relative has graduated. (Thank GOD!). Why hasn't he or she finds it necessary to invest valuable time to ask questions regarding their about to start professional career? Just wondering.




My relative doesn't have a nairaland acct yet and i just advised him to do so. If He does, it would take a week or so for his account to be activated. The inquiry is urgent, that's why I'm asking on his behalf. And He's overseas (not in Nigeria)
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by ocpaschal: 5:42pm On Jun 28
Pls I want to enquire on an urgent matter. If a UK resident or citizen invites a family relative/relation that is currently in Ukraine to come over to the UK with an invitation letter, can one apply for a UK visiting visa based on this reason?

Does an invitation letter from a UK citizen boost or improve the chances of the relative in getting a UK visiting visa while in Ukraine? And does the UK embassies accept and acknowledge invitation letters written by their own citizens that invites a visa applicant abroad to travel to Britain?

What is the duration period or How long does it take to obtain a UK visiting visa from the moment u applied for the visiting visa?

Please I want to make enquiries regarding application for masters in UK. I recently graduated from Ukraine and I have begun application for masters. After I have gained admission from a university in UK;
-what type of visa do I apply for?
-how long would it take the embassy to provide the visa, as my stay in Ukraine will expire soon
-would it be possible to get invited to UK by a resident/citizen of UK, then upgrade my visiting visa to a study visa (based on the admission granted by the university) from within the UK?
-what would be the process of upgrading a visiting visa to a study visa while in the UK?
I really appreciate any help you can provide.

Your best bet is to ask here.

You need a tier 4 (Student visa)
From what I know, the UKBA website has an estimate of the visa application timeline based on your application location. I don't think you can change from a visitors visa to a student visa.

We have trashed some points here numerous times.......

I have emphasized topics about insurance vs licence validity........

The insurance company simply made his insurance policy, null & void.......

I personally think the horse already bolted....... If he is meant to pay the bill, he should request the invoices of repair..........

I feel would be a difficult battle, but worth a fight...... They would state ignorance is not an excuse ......

Was his neighbour in the car, during the accident? If the neighbour was, a possible whiplash claim might still be added/already added......


NB : A couple of years ago, after a shift at Kent & Sussex hospital, got to my car hopped in, drove down the road, I could hear a flap at the back of my car.......

Unbeknown to me, the lady that parked behind me, rammed my rear mercilessly....... Luckily for me, I saw them walking away from their car (about 4 of them)...... I accosted them, the lady admitted hitting me, we exchanged details (took pictures etc etc).........

Lady got home, explained to her father...... Story changed..... She denied responsibilities....... grin

My insurance company already gave me a courtesy vehicle, so I no send (that's why I pay insurance) (it's their battle)...... tongue

I drove this courtesy vehicle for 11 month's, YES 11 month's........ grin

Bill was over £22,000..... War started, it eventually ended in court.... My vehicle was written off and judgement was got against the other insurance company (they had to pay that bill)....... cheesy

Guys reason this for my elder bro which makes sense. He is living in bristol.

The job offers are:

London company - Fully remote 45k
London company - 2 days a week in the office 68k
International company located in wales - everyday in the office, 20 min drive from his home 60k

Which is more value for money after transport etc.

He needs to grab a calculator and do the maths. He should work out his take home after tax for each offer and deduct his expenses.
