  1. Hi there. I have recently had a letter from the HM Courts Historic Debt team about a fine in 2014 that was for £930!!!! I called the Magistrates court today about this having read about statutory declarations etc and found out a bit more about the case. The offence was that i had used a car on the 16th September 2013 without tax on the A5 through milton keynes. I bought the car in November 2011 and sold it in April 2012, shortly before moving to a new house. Luckily I have a photocopy of the receipt myself and the buyer signed when she took the car, so I am confid
  2. Received a letter on the 20th July 2017 (Despite the fact it is dated 10th July 2017) stating an imposed amount of £250 from the HM Courts and Tribunals Service. Apparently the fine was imposed at a magistrates court in October 2009. The offence occurred in March 2009. The car was registered in my name at my old address (I moved houses in July 2009). Those were the details given to me when I phoned the historic debt phone number (since the letter simply states the cost of the fine, not the reason why it was imposed etc). Was also given the name of the street the vehicle was spotted on.
  3. Hi all, i received a letter from dvla this week saying they have photographic evidence of may car in july 2016 as not having tax. on the back of the letter it has a four part statement to fill in. What should i do ? many thanks
  4. Sorry i am new to this page and i don't know how it works well. I live in Reading and i brought a Spanish car with Spanish registration on the 8th June 2014. I brought the car into UK for bringing goodies into my home in Reading. On the 16th June 2014 a police officer stopped my partner when he was driving the car and the police officer clamped and impounded the car because the car was used in UK without a UK license and UK tax. On the 17th June i paid 260 pound fee for releasing the car from the pound and paying a surety fee. Then, i was explained that the car neede
  5. Hi all It has been pointed out to me by a friend that works in a supermarket that their security guards do not have SIA licenses to carry out security guarding activites . I went and asked in the supermarket and spoke to a personnel manager , she told me she wasn't aware supermarket guard needed licenses as it was private property . But so are nightclubs . And also they are not employed as security they are just supermarket employees . My questions are . 1)Can these people wear clothing stating they are security ? ie jackets etc with security written on them 2)Can they l
  6. Hi, I've got this kitcar to deal with, it was forgotten in a family garage since 2004/2005 neither taxed nor sorned, address might be wrong too. .. but due to a death and property sale I now need to do something with it. Manufactured and registered in '95, date of liability apparently 2005. It's worth bugger-all, some parts might be of interest to another kit car builder. .. but the engine hasn't even been started since 2004/2005. What's the best thing to do with it? It's the gap in registration/sorn that I'm now worried about. .. i.e. lots of back dated
  7. TDA {Trade Debt Recovery} www.tradedebtrecovery.co.uk are not licensed by anybody, chase up small 'written off' debts. They made an illegal approach to my property, and were sent packing by letter. They are now making the inference by letter that they have the right to affect your credit Rating. Just wondering how illegal they are. Could you give me your considered. Many thanks
  8. Hi all This is the first time I have posted on this forum but desperately need some advice. In early March this year, I decided to buy a new car and after much research, I purchased a second hand vehicle from a local garage. I paid £6500 for the car - £3000 cash plus £3500 part exchange for my existing vehicle, and as part of the deal I negotiated with the garage, they also threw in 6 months road tax. I picked up my car on the day arranged, exchanged the funds, checked the tax disc was in the car as arranged and left. I was happily driving around in my car for a few months bel
  9. Hi There, Hope someone can help us please. Today my husband received a letter from Magistrate's Office,saying he needs to pay £163 by April 2013. We had no idea what it was for,and there was no reference to it in letter. My husband is deaf,so I rang the Court on his behalf. All the lady could tell me was it was for having an unlicensed vehicle,and it dated back to June 2000,and referred to our previous address.We sold our then house in 1999,and moved 200 miles away in June 1999. The lady couldn't tell us any more info,such as what car reg it was etc. We have never had an un
  10. I moved house in June amidst a huge of amount of trouble regarding divorce and a bitter custody battle for the kids. Unfortunately in the midst of all of this my tax renewal was posted to my ex-wife's house and she promptly threw it in the bin without telling me. I stupidly continue to drive around my car without ever checking the tax disc, I thought it was for renewal in March 2013 when it really ran out in July 2012. I got a police warning yesterday telling me that they have submitted a report to the DVLA and the maximum penalty is 5x the annual tax which for my car amounts to about £12
  11. Hi! So I was just asking for advice on what I should do in the following circumstance: I purchased my car on the 28th of April and as it was declared SORN it has not been taxed previously due to the former keeper not having insurance on it. So, on the morning of the 28th, I insured myself, nagged the insurance company to send me a cover letter so I could go to the Post Office (this was Saturday 28th) and tax it myself with the new keeper supplement and I have the tax disc displayed before obviously driving it away. Then today, I received a letter saying that photographic evidenc
