  1. Just spoke to my cousin, there is a little confusion. On his temp licence it says it is valid for 2 months, but there is no "expiry date". He was stopped on Dec 4th, and handed in his licence on Dec 11th. It is not clear whatsoever if the 2 months starts from the date of offence, or the date the temp licence was issued. It also says on the temp licence that it expires either when the revocation letter comes through, or 2 months, whichever comes first. As there is no sign of the revocation letter yet, he is unsure if it expires on 4th Feb (today) or 11th Feb! Has anyone been in this situation before? Thanks...
  2. I see, I thought revoke meant the same thing as disqualification! So the copper was trying to scare him with all that talk about jail then! So his temp licence expires at the end of Feb then he cant legally drive anymore. What if he still hasn't received his revocation notice by then? Is there a legal loophole that he can take advantage of if the DVLA fail to issue him a revocation notice?? Thanks
  3. Thanks for that link dx100uk. I made a minor mistake while writing my post. After my cousin was caught that day, he was given a producer, and took his licence to his local police station. IMMEDIATELY after handing over his licence, they gave him a yellow temporary one. Why? And they told him to await a letter (unsure if its from police or DVLA) confirming what will happen to him. He is still waiting for that! As I said, I stand by my advice telling him not to drive, but he is driving with this temp licence anyway. Question: Why did the police issue him with a temp licence? It says nothing about that on the driving ban website! Thanks...
  4. I noticed this site is mostly about debt, but I’m a member anyway and I have an important DVLA question. It is for my 19 year old cousin in south London who got 3 points for speeding (sp30) in summer 2008. He has held his licence for less than a year at this point!! Later that year in Dec 08, he was caught and filmed by an unmarked police car driving next to him committing 2 offences at the same time, 3 points each: speeding, and under-taking someone (dangerous driving). When the police man pulled him over and explained that he would get 6 points in one go, plus have his licence taken and probably do 6 months in prison (harsh but is it true?), my cousin pleaded that he has a squeaky clean record etc. The police man (aware he has 3 points already) said he will let him off the speeding offence, and only charge him with the dangerous driving one. Right, so my cousin has managed to evade jail and 9 points, so now has 6 points in total within his first two years of driving. He knows that he will lose his licence and need to re-take his driving test. He needed to send his licence back to the DVLA, which he did, but they sent him a 2-month temporary licence back which expires at the end of Feb 09. I advised him that he shouldn't drive with this temp licence (because he is already banned), but he has been doing so anyway at his own risk. My concern is what will happen to him if caught driving with that temp licence? Recent amendments to the law have left most motorists unsure about what it takes to go to jail these days! Can anyone who knows for sure shed any light please? Thanks in advance...
  5. half-way through compiling it, okay, what would you like to see? List of PCN numbers? Dates? If each PCN has been passed onto bailiffs, do the bailiffs consolidate more than one PCN into a single one of their own?
  6. **the link at the top of my last post wasn't done by me!! It should be "w's, bailiff advice online, dot co dot you kay".**
  7. Bailiff advice,bailiffs,parking charges,bailiff fees,congestion charges,fines,anpr,csa,council tax I found quite alot from this website, and have downloaded and printed the 3-page PE2+PE3 forms. I'm unsure about a couple of things: Should I give my old address in the PE2/PE3 forms (which is still the address on my license)? The new occupants will give me a phonecall immediately when they get post for me. On the forms it asks for a list of the PCNs (parking) but there is one which has a photo of me turning left near Liverpool Street station, where there is a tiny little sign saying I can't do so during certain hours. That is not a PCN is it? That (among a few others) was automatically posted to my old address with no way of me knowing about it. So do I include that in my list of PCNs? I literally paid thousands of pounds in fines, can that contribute in any way in my favour? As I am in a bad financial situation at the moment?
  8. Yes I can give a list - but i'm still compiling it! Unsure about a couple of things: Should I give my old address in the PE2/PE3 forms (which is still the address on my license)?

  9. So sorry but I am new here (and learning alot btw!). I also sent this post (with more replies) here: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/parking-traffic-offences/172462-law-allows-them-do.html and here: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bailiffs-sheriff-officers/172470-trapped-impossible-situation.html
  10. Oh yes please! How can I get these forms, and what happens after? Although its an ideal solution, I find it hard to believe that these bailiffs will just stop and let me off without paying anything. The majority of fines were issued well before March 2008. What information do I need to supply in these forms? Will I get in trouble for not changing my dvla address when I moved? Thanks, NBG
  11. Hello Pin, thanks alot for your reply. I have to say its hard to understand what you've said, so I will try in my own words... I have a large bag full of original letters posted to me by various debt collectors, so you are saying I should call each of them saying they should be contacted soon by TEC(?) telling them I have initiated a Statuatory Declaration(?) file at TEC(?), which should halt them visiting my old house. - Then I pay each original fine (£40) to the initial council to satisfy them? I dont think I should give them my new address! (?) = I have no idea what it means. Thanks, NBG
  12. My first post, sorry it’s lengthy but very serious; I would love to hear some feedback, thanks in advance. Working as a self-employed courier in London for approximately 1 year, inevitably I would get parking tickets from various London boroughs, and instead of contesting them I would just pay them, and can prove I paid quite a lot in parking fines. If they have a photo of my vehicle parked while the meter has ran out of time, then I have no basis to contest right? It was not until after I left that job that I learned I could have rightfully contested my parking tickets by showing my daily worksheet, and that I was just doing my job, and I could have avoided paying over half of them! I paid a huge amount of money that year in fines, which I cannot even claim as expenses!! I moved address towards the end of that year, and almost a year after that I went to my old address to check for mail. I was horrified when the new occupants handed me a bag full of threatening letters from debt collectors, saying I owe ridiculous amounts of money, and the new occupants regularly get visits from bailiffs looking for me and my vehicle. On average they get one or two visits per week, and they ignore that they’re told I don’t live there anymore. I can only imagine that a couple of tickets have evaded me by not being stuck on my windscreen, and “automatically” posted to me. Not too long ago I found my vehicle clamped with a notice asking for £500, and I paid it promptly (I wasn’t even aware I owed anything to that company), soon after I declared my vehicle SORN and have been keeping it off the road, and did not change my address on my driving license on purpose out of fear. I am more than terrified; there is no way I can even pay a quarter of what I am being charged! How does a £40 fine become nearly £500+ each? How do debt collectors justify such huge increases, are they allowed to do this by law? I have wanted to sell the vehicle for a while now, but I want these debt-collectors off my back first or else the new owner will probably get clamped on their first week! Someone advised me to get in contact with the “Northampton County Court”, but I don’t know what to say or how to go about doing this, if it is what needs to be done. Someone else advised me that I should declare myself personally bankrupt, but I have no idea how or what it involves either – for what it’s worth, I am currently unemployed and receiving JSA. Question: If the relevant London boroughs have passed my debt onto debt-collectors, does this mean they have wiped my parking offences clean, and the debt-collectors are my only concern? This issue has put my life on hold in many ways, and filled me with fear. What can I do? Thanks for your time to read this, NBG
