    That FAQ is out of date as the BPA CoP has changed insomuch as it no longer states

    "2. Keeper/driver liability
    2.1 Changes to Code of Practice - Part 2 Parking Tickets
    The paragraph 36) C) – xviii (parking ticketicon Issue - page 10) will be amended to read:
    “What will happen next if no payment or challenge is received within the time(s) allowed and any further charges that may be accrued, e.g. “the name and address of the registered keeper of the vehicle will be requested from the DVLA and a request will be sent to the keeper asking for the name and address of the driver at the time the charge was incurred””.
    2.2 The paragraph 67) A) (Enforcement Action on outstanding parking tickets – Notice to Owner - page 13); this “letter to the owner” should make no reference to asking for payment but should specifically point out the details of the contravention and request that the owner furnish the details of the driver at the time the charge was incurred.
    The question now is did Town & City get the Registered Keepers details by electronic access or manually.

    I don't think I can make a complaint unless I know so will browse around to see if there is a method to obtain that info from the DVLA.

    Sorry lamma you've been most helpful and patient but I'm still finding it difficult to navigate the info.

    It's really a point of principle for me that Private Companies may obtain my personal private details without any evidence yet joe public does not have the same rights.

    Thanks again

    Notice received from a company requesting payment of 70 i.e. 60 + adminicon Fee. The Notice or invoice does give all the details that Town & City omitted in their Notice to Owner.

    I had to search on the web to find out who they are .. Debt Recovery Agents & Sherifs Officers. Might get my day in court after all

    RE: Release of Information Request V888/2

    Dear Sir/Madam

    This letter requests no personal information and as such should not be interpreted as a Subject access requesticon therefore no fee is due however if necessary I will serve a Subject access requesticon subject to your response to this letter.

    DVLA records will clearly detail that I am the Registered Keeper of Vehicle Reg. Number: XXXX XXX.

    On the XX March 2009 I received an Invoice for an alleged parking chargeicon Notice (pcnicon) issued on XX Dec 2008 by PPC purported I assume against my vehicle for some form of contravention or infraction. A copy has been enclosed which will be discussed in detail later.

    After further investigation and due diligence it’s clear that the DVLA released my personal details to this Private Company for a fee in the form of a V888/2 request! As such I request DVLA furnish me with any and all information related to this V888/2 request by (PPC) including but not limited to evidence of Contract/Agreement between Town & City Parking Ltd and the Landowner.

    The DVLA has a duty to protect my private information and not simply disclose to Private Entities for a fee on the basis of good faith!

    Please refer to the photocopy Invoice from PPC which demonstrates they are members of British Parking Association (BPA). DVLA have deemed BPA an Accredited Trade Association (ATA). All BPA members must adhere to the BPA’s Code of Practice and be party to the BPA Approved Operator Scheme (AOS).

    “All BPA members who are involved in car parking enforcement on private land must become a member of the BPA’s Approved Operator Scheme. The primary focus of the scheme is to ensure that all operators wishing to electronically access the DVLA’s vehicle keepers’ details database are a regulated member of an Accredited Trade Association (ATA).” Direct quote from BPA Code of Practice!

    I will make the assumption (as I am not an expert) that the invoice (the only correspondence ever received from this company) is deemed a Notice to Owner as such it clearly violates the BPA’s Code of Practice.

    NOTICE TO OWNER (As detailed in the BPA Code of Practice section (67) Part A)

    "A Notice to Owner may be sent to the registered keeper at the address provided by the DVLA, not less than 28 days after the Parking Ticket was issued. This Notice to Owner must state the following:"
    • That a Parking Ticket was fixed to the vehicle and has not been paid;
    • That the opportunity to pay a discounted amount has been lost;
    • The details of the alleged contravention;
    • The location, date and time;
    • The vehicle’s registration mark, make and (optionally) colour;
    • The description of the alleged contravention;

    When serving a Notice to Owner, Operators must include a leaflet advising motorists of the ‘reasonable cause’ for the request and the complaints procedure by which keepers can notify the Information Commissioner and DVLA if they believe their data has been used inappropriately. This should also include the disputes resolution procedure if the ticket is challenged.

    All the above items in RED were clearly omitted from the PPC Invoice. This Invoice is in dispute!

    I look forward to your response and investigation of PPC as they are clearly violating BPA’s Code of Practice and indeed DVLA’s Accredited Trade Association Scheme.

    Yours

    Ta but ...

    How to request information from DVLA records

    • the V888 - for members of the public
    • the V888/2 - for companies (all circumstances, except where a penalty charge notice is issued)
    • the V888/3 - for companies (only if the keeper details are required to issue a penalty charge notice or reminder)
    Explain please

    V888/3 exists for use by companies who issue on behalf of councils. ONLY councils can issue Penalty Charge Notices.

    PPCs use V888/2, trust me on this.

    “NO FURTHER INTIMATION WILL BE GIVEN”
    Intimation- A slight suggestion or vague understanding?
    Do they mean INTIMIDATION? the act of intimidating a weaker person to make them do something.
    That will be good then!
