After owning the same car for over 20years I found myself needing to replace it.
I purchased a car last year (August 17) which was £0 tax.
All the relevant paperwork was sent off and i received the new keeper registration document.
What I didn't realise is that i needed to register my car online.
In November 17 my vehicle was clamped for being untaxed.
I was totally shocked and couldn't understand why this was as i did not have to pay tax on it.
I paid the fine of £100 to get it unclamped after registering the car.
I thought that was it.
However, I have now received a letter to say that must pay out an out of court settlement of £30.00 to stop DVLA taking me to court!
I dont understand how that can be if i have paid the fine and corrected my mistake.
I was not told that i would be charged an additional £30 2 months later!
Surely, this money making and cannot be legal
Does anyone else experienced this? please advise.
Do I pay the £30 fine
