  1. Hello! A Parking Charge Notice has been issued for a car at a time when I was driving. The PCN has been issued to the car owner, and I've asked them to pass on my details. Do we need to do anything else immediately ie. withing 28 days of the date the PCN was issued to the owner? Or will a new PCN be issued to me as the driver? And another little question: the PCN says "If you were not the driver of the vehicle and you wish to provide the drivers details... please follow the instructions overleaf". But overleaf, the only instructions relate to contesting or challenging the charg
  2. Hi, my friend took NE to London to apply French visa for January trip. The bus arrived in London one and a half hour late because of the driver went to wrong direction (which is unbelievable!) She missed the time slot for French visa, and it is unlikely to apply visa anytime before January. (She has bought tickets and booked hotel already) I searched NE website regards of compensation, but there is not much information. She allowed one hour between coach arrival time and visa. Could she claim the foreseeable loss?
  3. My Friend has been on a 5 day driver training course. she was not to the required standard DSA level 5 so was not put forward for the test on day 5. This she understands. However the reason I query this for you wise comments are the following: The website does not explain at what level you need to be, or that if they cannot get you to DSA level 5 then you will not be put in for the test or return for the test. see 5day website On the website it states If you are unsuccessful on your Theory Test or Practical Test Get FREE, unlimited theory and practical correction less
  4. Hi all, Yesterday I had my classic car transported to a new storage location via an agent on Shiply and the driver damaged the car twice - once during loading and again when unloading. The first instance is a little complicated: I had forgot to tighten the anti-roll bar bolts and it had dropped down, rattling on the loading ramp. However, rather than check what the problem was, the driver heaved the car back off the ramp with such force that it inverted the ARB and crushed the chassis rails underneath. I had gone to get cash while this happened and only returned in time to see him h
  5. Hi Firstly thanks in advance for help, had some very bad news yesterday and just looking for any advice In early 2018 I was driving a company vehicle and was doing 36 in a 30 zone. The prosecution notice when to the employers as the owners of the vehicle asking them to name the driver. They named me but I left the company around this time. I got a letter asking me to name the driver/if I were the driver. I have to confess I didn't respond. No doubt I have been stupid but this time coincidended with me leaving my family home and having some health issues. I later moved bac
  6. Just got a NIP in the post recently, 39 in a 30 zone. What's the likelihood of of avoiding 3 pts and being offered the speed awareness course? I'm clean, no points ever, in 30 years driving history. It was from Thames Valley Police in case that has a bearing. Lastly, I'm not sure if it was me or the missus at that time? We share a car and i'm 70% it was me but can't be 100% sure. Under the circumstances, I'm going to supply my details and take the punishment. Anything wrong with this approach? thanks
  7. Dear All, I’m looking for some advice please. Some time ago I had a road traffic accident. When cycling a car cut me off. I didn’t have a chance to break and hit the car, went through my handle bars and hit the ground. The driver drove off from the accident scene but the registration plates were known to the Police because one of the witnesses took photo of that car. I had many injuries and was taken to hospital. After sometime Police sent me a letter and informed me that ..."the driver of the other vehicle registration number XXXXXXX was unable to be traced"...
  8. Hi guys and gals. Sorry to post a new thread but I am extremely confused about the Gladstones Letter of claim. Let me explain. My husband is the registered keeper of the vehicle and I am the main driver. We have just received a Letter before claim from Gladstones, however this is the first I have heard of this PCN. On the day in question i know I was the driver because I found a wallet and handed it in to LLOYDSTSB bank as that's where the cards were from inside it. This is probably the reason i got a ticket as i am aware i was slightly late back but not by much.
  9. Aplogies as an absolute newbie here, however I was asked to create a new thread. There is another recent thread (I can't post links, maybe someone else could as seems daft to recreate a whole heap of stuff). I am in the identical situation at the same location I have just received an identical letter from UKCPS, all details completely as the above mentioned thread (same paperwork). My wife was driving my car that day, obviously she didn't spot any signage etc. 28 minutes over a 4hr limit..... Disgusted that companies can request such 'fees', she is disabled (was parked in

  11. Hi everyone, I need some advice on behalf of a friend. He started working as a self-employed DPD franchise driver last year. It means you get the title as self-employed but essentially you drive their van, you wear their uniform, they tell you what hours to work & theres little say on your part in this. During the course of his working day, he got into an accident. The insurance companies stated that they could find nobody to be at fault for the collision and any damages were paid for. I believe the other guy who was involved in the crash had quite a high excess
  12. Hi hope someone can help me here please.....I was a self employed courier driver for a local company in May 2017. I worked 7 full days for the company and i got an invoice for 4 days work which i should have been paid on 15th June but because i left on the 8th day with 8 parcels left and they had to pick their van up from my premises they have refused to pay me for any days work that i did prior. And ive looked through contract and it does not state anything at all on that. Could i send a LBA to the company requesting full 7 days payment what they owe and can i charge interest????If so where c
  13. Hello folks, Apologies in advance if this is the wrong sub forum for this. Please move if it's in the wrong place. This evening I hired an Uber after seeing a film in a local Cinema. The App advised me a driver was 20 minutes away, which was plenty of time to grab a takeaway to eat when I got home. The driver accepted the job and knowing the takeaway takes 9 minutes to process my order thought it would work out perfectly. 20 minutes came and went and then I had a phone call from the driver telling me he was not willing to do the job as he wanted to go back to the city he was bas
  14. This doesn't relate to a specific case, but may be helpful to the many people defending claims in court. If POFA is not followed to the letter, the only party that can be the lawful defendant is the Driver. While I understand the need to refer to the Registered Keeper in the third person in all communication with the PPC and their lawyer of choice, so you don't negate the protection you have under POFA, how far are you permitted to go in court to deny that you WERE the driver? There was a case on here just last week where a judge required the defendant to state whether he/she w
  15. The rear of our car was flashed doing 35mph in a 30mph zone by a parked up mobile van, there is only one photograph from the police as we requested photographic evidence, but it is impossible to tell who was driving at the time as there is only a small part of the top of the drivers head visible, we have no clue as to who was driving, what do we do now? Any advice would be great guys thanks
  16. Hello again everyone. Unfortunately l have to seek help again on this site regards a PCN that happened in August 2011. I did open a thread about it in August 2011 but no longer can find it. Yesterday l received the now popular BW legal letter acting on behalf of VCS about an outstanding balance of £174.00,[ consisting of £120.00 PCN plus their clients initial legal costs of £54.00. ]. Back in August 2011, following advice from this forum and as l wasn't the driver at the time of the PCN being issued but registered keeper, we decided to ignore the threatening letters which, eve
  17. Hi guys, my daughter had my car on holiday and overstayed her allotted 60 mins in a McD's car park, South Hayes by 25 mins. Because of this I received a parking charge notice for £100, discounted to £50 if I pay within 14 days. I live in Scotland and I am not too familiar with English Law so can someone please tell me if I have to inform them legally who was driving the vehicle? They quote paragraphs 9(2)(b) and 9(2)(f) of Schedule 4 of The Protection of Freedoms Act telling me that the driver of the vehicle has to pay this charge and that if I don't tell them who was driving then the
  18. Of course they did, that is how they operate, see one person use it twice in the same day and they ditch the first leave and the second arrival. It's done purposely to rip-off motorist and make illegal fat profits. http://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/news/grandad-fined-for-staying-too-long-at-mcdonalds-despite-spending-less-than-30-minutes-there/ar-AAihXWy

  20. Ill try and keep this short but to the point as I see posters on here who give war and peace but when you sort the wheat from the chaff, its easy. My wife is the RK for all our vehcle (3) Sunday we were going to a football match with our son to an away game in a convoy. My wife drove to the game I, on arrival, went to a shop to get our son a drink as we hadnt got one. Roll on later (within 14 days) and we get a NIP for running a red light. I immediatley write on my wifes behalf and immediately say theres only 2 people whoicould be drivers, my wife (5f 4 9s 7lb with bl
  21. Hope someone can help here. On Saturday I was out with my brother getting fuel and he asked if he could drive my car quickly. I very stupidly said yes and drove to an area I know to have very small amounts of traffic. We swapped seats and I told him to just leave the car park and drive 100ft or so pull into a side road and turn around and come back. He took a wrong turn and ended up on a main road and I told him to just be as sensible as he can and get to the safest place to stop which entailed driving to a roundabout 100m away and taking the first exit, which is a closed
  22. What's the legal position with having to declare who was driving at the time a PCN was attached to my car? The PCN was due to a ticket blowing upside down when closing the door. The correct amount was paid and I have the ticket that was purchased at the time. So far I have received a couple of letters threatening action and the fine has increased on both occasions. I have sent the standard letter requesting information about who the landowner is etc, and I have not declared who the driver is. Apologies if this is obvious but I'm relatively new to this.
  23. As the title suggests this is a warning post to drivers and their parents about car modifications. I was out the other evening and i noticed three young drivers with very heavily modified cars, with tinted window, sports exhausts etc. As they were only in their early 20's, if they had insurance with all these mods properly disclosed, it would have made the insurance very expensive. Many people carry out mods to their cars and don't even think about insurance. If you fail to notify insurers of any modifications to a standard car, you are at risk of the insurers not paying out for an
  24. I'm hoping someone can give me some advice here. I took out a Learner driver policy for my son last September after buying him a car for his 18th Birthday. He was the owner and I stupidly did not change my name to his on the V5 so was the registered keeper. When I took out the policy I was named as a named driver, the policy was in his name and I declared that he was the owner/registered keeper of the car as I had my own vehicle. Two weeks ago, he drove his car to his friends and I drove the car home. Unfortunately, I drove into the back of someone and the insurance said the car
