Ive had an £80 from DVLA re not sorning a vehicle. I have sent off the sorn, not got a reply and left it till I recieved a £40 fine. I wrote to the DVLA (recorded) they escalated the fine to £80:rolleyes:. I then wrote again,no reply.It went to a DCA, wrote to the head of department (DVLA) explaing the car was SORN and using the template on this forum, no reply. Im on my last DCA letter (the third), whats the advice on this? Im not a repeat offender, never been in this situation before even though I own and tax several cars. I resent being criminalised and made to pay a fine whilst Im trying to communicate with said department. £80 is alot of money to pay out for maladministration :mad:

 

Where do I go from here?

 

 

Any advice would be appreciated.:)

Why have you received 3 letters from the DCA? Didn't you write to them after the first pointing out it was in dispute? If you did, any subsequent latters from them would be illegal as the debt must be returned to the principle in those cases, and will no doubt prove to be useful if the DVLA pursue it to court.

The DVLA told me that all letters would be passed to DCA anyway, so,I thought it would reach both parties if sent to DVLA. Looks like I was wrong on that score :(

Saying that, I did think that opening communications would negate the need to inform DCA ? Can I write to DCA and explain at this stage?

 

Thanks for looking Crem

There is nothing for you to "explain" to the DCA. You simply inform them that the debt is in dispute and they are legally obliged to return the file to the DVLA. Inform them that the only further contact you expect to receive from them is confimation that their involvement has ceased.

 

Should this not happen then and you are continued to be pursued by the DCA, then it will all go in your favour if the DVLA go all the way to court with this.

Ta!

Letter signed,sealed and recorded.

So a DCA can only pursue people who refuse to pay, is that why a letter will suffice?

No, a DCA can only pursue an outstanding genuine debt. The DVLA have not yet established that a debt exists as you have disputed that fact. Therefore they cannot engage a DCA until they resolve with you, either directly or through court, that the alledged debt exists.
