Hello Everyone I am new to this site and would appreciate your help.

Last year i sold my car at that point the car had SORN. this month i received a court summons saying that i failed to reply to a notice that i had my car on the road on the day it was sold - this was reported to the DVLA by a police officer who must have seen the car on the road when the buyer came to collect it.

I am very worried the car all the time had been on my drive but the day i sold the car was the day the police saw it on the road.

my questions are if the V5 shows the date of sale being the day the car was on the road am i liable?? or will i have to prove the time the car was sold on that day? also the paperwork sent with the court summons shows the wrong date of disposal. The DVLA never sent me an acknowledgement letter. Also what are the fines i am likely to face in the magistrates court? also the fact i never received the notice from the DVLA what is my positon with regards to that. The final thing would the police officer have left a notice on the car???

i would greatly appreciate your help i cannot afford legal advice the hearing is in two weeks time. And i have no idea what to do.

Thank you in advance for your help

did you ever allow the car onto the road without tax. prior to the new ownder taking ownership (ie for a test drive)?

 

do you remember the exact time the new owner took posession of the vehicle?

 

Is there a notification of the time that the vehicle was spotted on the road by the police?

hi flyingdoc firstly thank you for taking the time to look at my prob.

 

i did not allow the buyer to take the car for test drive before buying it. the car has always remained on my drive.

 

i cant remember the exact time but he signed the V5 on the day before he left with the car and i think that must have been when the police officer saw the car when we were in the house filling out the details on V5.

 

i did not receive a notification on the vehicle from the police on the car unless the boy i sold the car to took it off - i was stupid i gave the boy the keys to the car and left him to it and there may have been a notice on the car i don t know. But looking at my court papers the police report says he saw the car on the 9:15pm which is around the time were were sorting out the paperwork.

 

I would really appreciate your feed back at to what i should do.

I would write to the DVLA and tell them that you sold the car on the day in question and had not allowed the car off your drive until after the new owner took posession of the vehicle.

You might have to swear out a statutory declaration which you can do in your local magistrates court for free
