As one of those pensioners who previously had a free licence, I've finally had my ten page letter, telling me I have to pay for one, as from 31st July. They give you several ways to pay for it, which are most convenient for them. Of those offered, I've elected to pay monthly, but i've told them I'll be paying by cheque, ( not a published option). I've been perfectly fair, I've sent them two months payments, so I'm up to date. I've told them I'll be sending further cheques for £13.13 on the 1st of every month. They asked for a phone number in case they need to contact me. I've told them to write. That'll teach them to renege on an agreement.
