  1. Thanks for the tip Buzby... I contacted my local MP (Any Reed) and his office have said they will help me get the DVLA off my back A letter was sent and is now being looked into by the "CEO" of the DVLA, a Mr Noel Shanahan... (Oh, and since when did the DVLA become an American style corporate enterprise in need of a "Chief Enterprise Officer"?!?!? It's supposed to be a bloody civil service!! More evidence of the neo-corporatism of all that was once good in this World! ) Anyhoo, before I break into a rant about the state of this fair isle and the seemingly lost cause that is our syst
  2. Thanks Nehpets... it's in the post and I'll let you know how it goes. I've also contacted my local MP just to see if they are actually any use in these matters. Keep us updated on how you get on.
  3. Thank Nehpets! Hope you don't mind, but I've copied your words and slightly re-worked them into a letter to the DVLA:- ******************************************** Dear Sir / Madam, It seems from your previous letter, that the DVLA are claiming that it is a ‘supplement’ rather than a ‘fine’. It seems you may be claiming this to avoid having to satisfy the relevant legislation. Your previous letter also seems to contradict itself. Whilst claiming that the £80 charge is a ‘supplement’, Mr Green clearly refers to it as an ‘LLP’ which stands for ‘Late Licensing Penalty’ and on
  4. Oh yes! I've now been sent the following letters from both the DVLA and Bailiffs (After sending the letter template on this forum):- And from the Bailiffs:- Seems I am not a criminal, but I am being extorted by the Secretary of State, on behalf of the Crown, for £80 because I didn't declare a scrapped car off the road. The fact that I sent them the V5 means nothing to them. The DVLA clearly won't listen and are now trying the tactic of simply selling the debt to a private company, who are using threatening language and charging additional costs! Any ideas on my next
  5. Hi Crem, I did notify them straight away. I didn't read the small print telling me I had to chase them up. I didn't get proof of postage for this reason. I'm thinking of using the letter template in this forum so I can do exactly as you suggest - see them in court and prey the magistrate is on my side. Not sure there's any more I can do!
  6. Crem has responded in another thread with the following:- When did you notify them? If it was at the time of the scrapping and within the valid VED at the time, then you have fulfilled your duty. I think I would send one more letter in answer to them confirming you notified them correctly and on time and state that you dispute their claim and that you wil not enter into any further communication with themor their agents over this shortof discussing the matter in court. I did notify them by posting log book the day the car was picked up by the scrap man and taken away (This was ov
  7. Thanks Conniff - that makes much more sense. The letter is headed "Specialist Bailiff & Debt Recovery Agents"! They'll try anything to scare people, and this is OUR civil service!
  8. Sorry - didn't realise it was MY responsibility to read the small print on a Government agency document! We may need to do this with private companies we don't trust, but I am of the opinion that our Civil SERVICE should be trusted to have OUR best interests at heart!
  9. Hi, I sent my V5 logbook in when my old car was scrapped over 2 years ago!) but after writing a letter to DVLA, in response to a SORN fine, explaining the situation, I had no response and my case passed has simply been passed onto the Bailiffs "Philips Collection Services" who are demanding I pay the fine of £80 or face imprisonment or a £1000 fine!!! What can I do? I do not have spare cash to fund the government in their pledge to rid us of terrorists!!! Any help, much appreciated!
  10. Hi, I've had a similar issue (Car scrapped over a year ago!) but after writing a letter to DVLA explaining the situation, I've now had no response and my case passed onto the Bailiffs "Philips Collection Services" who are demanding I pay the fine of £80 or face imprisonment or a £1000 fine!!!
