Hi, I am looking for some advice, having received a court requisition this morning, having been previously blissfully unaware of any issue (not having received any warning letters) I am the registered keeper of a car, that I 'loaned' to a friend of my husbands to use during a troubled patch in his life. The car was taxed by DD monthly, paid for by my husband, and insured by the driver, until January 2016 when he wrote the car off in an accident. I am being charged that on the 5th April 2016 the vehicle was taxed, and not insured. Firstly, the car was taken away by the insurance company on the 25th January, I naively assumed at that point that they would inform the DVLA (apparently not - they only received disposal notification on the 25th April) I had been paying monthly tax by direct debit, and had forgotten to cancel it, and having never had a car written off I didn't realise I needed to inform the DVLA mysef. DVLA tell me I would have had 2 warning letters, I didnt. But they cant do anything about it as its with the court now. Apparently the enforcement team wont speak to me because there is a previous offence on the car, which incidentally was the 'friend' speeding in it, which has been settled. The court is in Crawley, I live 150 miles away. Yes I could go, at great time and monetary expense, but I dont understand why when the vehicle didn't even exist I am being made to feel like a criminal. Can anyone suggest what I should do? Am I guilty? there was no car!
Hi all, Need a bit of advice. I will try and keep this short and give all the facts, today my partner has received a requisition from the dvla No ASN required. On the 1/3/2014 we got 6mts tax from our local post office and paid for It by cheque the cheque was declined by our bank. We recieved a statutory notice dated 27/03/14 saying we had to pay the £68.75 or deliver up the licence. Now fast forward to today 13/8/2014 he gets this letter saying as he has failed to deliver up the licence he is required to appear at Lancaster Magistrates Court on the 1/9/2014. Now this has come as quite of a shock as I thought he had rung up and paid but he totally forgot about it, i know its no excuse and i am mortified this has happened. The car is taxed now as of this morning. Any advice on what to do. And yes this means I have been driving without a valid tax disc and I know that is against the law and believe me I am mortified and ready to hand myself in at the police station.
