Freedom of Movement

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency,

Can you please answer fully and honestly the following questions regarding the fundamental, unalienable and inherent right to freedom of movement.


1) Do natural living beings exercising their fundamentally protected right to freedom of movement require a license to travel upon the roads, streets and highways?
2) If yes, what law exists that relinquishes a natural living being of their fundamentally protected rights?


3) Is there a law that demands a natural living being exercising their fundamentally protected right to freedom of movement to do so ONLY by foot or horse?
4) If not, is there a law that prohibits a natural living being from travelling upon the roads, streets and highways using mechanical means in the exercise of their fundamentally protected right to freedom of movement?


5) Does a natural living being exercising their fundamentally protected right to freedom of movement using mechanical means for travelling require any form of documentation?
6) If yes, what law exists that relinquishes a natural living being of their fundamentally protected rights?

Please note that the above questions do not refer to DRIVING or VEHICLES as are legally defined for purposes of the Traffic Act or any Transportation Acts but to the use of roads, streets and highways as legally defined under the right to freedom of movement and travelling. The term “natural living being” is used in opposition to the term "legal person" as the fundamental, unalienable and inherent rights of an individual are being exercised and no individual is obligated to relinquish authority or to give consent to any statute, government, monarch or institution.

I am aware that you only have the competence to answer within the confines of Statute law and as such I have framed the questions in a manner that permits you to answer the questions fully without exceeding the authorities that you have been granted.

Below are the legal definitions for clarification:


That in or on which persons, goods, etc. may be carried from one place to another, especially along the ground. Any moving support or container fitted or used for the conveyance of bulky objects; a means of conveyance. That which is used as an instrument of conveyance, transmission or communication. Term refers to every device in, upon or by which a person or property is or may be transported upon a highway. Thus, freight carriers, automobiles and motors which are operating for hire, transportation and any other form of commerce is a vehicle.


The movement of goods or persons from one place to another, by a carrier.


Individual or organization engaged in transporting passengers or goods for hire. "Carrier" means any person engaged in the transportation of passengers or property by land, as a common, contract, or private carrier, or freight forwarder as those terms are used in the Interstate Commerce Act, and officers, agents and employees of such carriers.


In general, a passenger is one who gives compensation for a ride. The word passenger has however various meanings, depending upon the circumstances under which and the context in which the word is used; sometimes it is construed in a restricted legal sense as referring to one who is being carried by another for hire; on other occasions, the word is interpreted as meaning any occupant of a vehicle other than the person operating it. The essential elements of "passenger" as opposed to "guest" under guest statute are that driver must receive some benefit sufficiently real, tangible, and substantial to serve as the inducing cause of the transportation so as to completely overshadow mere hospitality or friendship; it may be easier to find compensation where the trip has commercial or business flavour.


Commerce; trade; sale or exchange of merchandise, bills, money, and the like. The passing of goods or commodities from one person to another for an equivalent in goods or money. The subjects of transportation on a route, as persons or goods; the passing to and fro of persons, animals, vehicles, or
vessels, along a route of transportation, as along a street, highway, etc.


A person actually doing driving, whether employed by owner to drive or driving his own vehicle.


The certificate or license issued by a state which authorizes a person to operate a motor vehicle. Generally, a written and driving examination is required for obtaining such.


To go from one place to another at a distance; to journey. Spoken of voluntary change of place.

One who passes from place to place, whether for pleasure, instruction, business or health.

Yours faithfully,

Gayle Miller

Dear Mrs Harris ,

Thank you for responding within the competence that you have been granted via Statute law.
I note that your response refers to legal entities who DRIVE VEHICLES and makes no mention of natural beings exercising their fundamental right to Freedom of Movement and travelling. This has been a great help in establishing the fact that there is, and can be, no immutable law which compels a natural being to relinquish their authority or to contract with anyone and thus removes any perceived right to revoke fundamental rights.

Yours sincerely,

Gayle Miller
