Hello All,

 

Help please? The DVLA have sent me a letter saying i need to pay outstanding tax on a vehicle I have never been the registered keeper for!!

 

It was on loan to my ex, who left me 4 months ago, it has been parked on my driveway ever since. I have asked them to collect it but knowone has, any advice on this by the by?

 

Anyway, i called the DVLA and they said that someone had wrote in saying it was my car! do they not check their registration certifactes before writting letters and fining people? Luckily i have a copy of the V5 certificate she left, and i sent a copy of it in a letter to the DVLA, i dont even know who the car belongs to, 'Sue' someone who I have never met.

 

Can they get away with this? Furthermore, will the person who sent the letter (hopefully) get in trouble with the police or something? can i claim compensation? how do i get this retrid car off my driveway?

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

 

John

Hello,

 

Cheers for your post,

 

The address is on there, and i have the number of the people who lent the car to my ex (not the registered owner) who i have asked on numerouse occasions to remove it.

 

I called the council and they have listed it as an abandoned vehicle and will be removing it soon if knowone comes to collect it.

 

With regards to the fine, the DVLA are still persuing me for it, even though they have no evidence that i have ever owned the vehicle... watch out if someone leaves a car on your driveway, apparently it makes you as the home owner responsible!

If the DVLA are writing to you specifically then your name must be on the V5 in which case you either must of filled in the 'new keeper's' section on the previous V5 and signed it or sombody else has done it fraudulently. Who ever actually owns the vehicle is of no interest to the DVLA.

 

You say you have the V5 so whose details are on it?

Hello Dennis,

 

I have certainly never recieved a V5 though the post for it, do you think someone has forged my signature and sent of false paperwork? with regards to my ex, i have never had ownership paperwork through the door for her.

 

Its amazing how the DVLA can entertain persuing me without any evidence whatsoever. Is there an ombudsman or someone i can make an official complaint to?

 

Furthermore, has this happened to anyone else? i havent seen any forums with a post like this...

Hello Sam,

 

I have never filled in any paperwork for the vehicle and I have not signed anything.... someone must have done it fraudulently! I guess im going to need a solicitor or something...

 

I have the V5 complete with the blank new keepers section, i wouldnt divulge the name of the registered keeper on a forum, however, they must have said they lost the original paperwork and paid for new ones, which would have cost them little over the cost of the fine. I think they are being perdantic and in true immature style of my ex girlfriend trying to screw me over anywhich way she can..

 

So unfair...

No, this is simple enough.

 

You are neither the owner nor registered keeper of the vehicle your ex abandoned on your property.

 

Who exactly have you asked to remove the vehicle? Your ex or the person who loaned them the car? How old is the car and what is the connection with the loan company/person and your ex?

 

You are not responsible for taxing the vehicle as it isn't yours. If it has been registered to you it has been done without your knowledge or consent and thus has been done fraudulently (your signature is required).

 

You need to inform DVLA of the fact that it is not your vehicle and never has been. It has been abandoned on your driveway by your ex partner, who cannot now be contacted.

Who has the keys? If it's not your car, can you push it onto the road and park it there?

Hello Both,

 

My name is not on the V5 i hold for it, it is 'Sue' somebody, however the fine from the DVLA was addressed to me. When i called the dvla they said someone had wrote in saying i was the registered keeper, which i am not and never had been.

 

I do not have the keys, that was the only thing my ex took with her!

I agree with DD. If Someone elses name appears on the V5 as the registered keeper, send the DVLA a photo copy of it pointing out that they should be able to confirm that this information is correct. You could also inform them that the vehicle is no longer in your possession and ask them to confirm that they consider that you are no longer (or ever was) connected to the vehicle on receipt of which, you will return the V5 to them if requested to do so.

Sorry but after watching your video, You seem to be lacking something. I was laughing like i do when i watch the poliece interceptors

show. They stop someone and that person denies everything even though they are being recorded on camera.

 

You mentioned not registering the car with the DVLA, If that was the case i think you would have been even worse off.

You would have no current documents to prove the car was yours. So they would have still taken it and fined you even more

for not updating the V5 documents.

 

You said what if the insurance papers were a few days late, You could have taxed it a few days late or taxed it online i guess.

But they clamped it and towed it, So i presume it wasnt just a few days.

 

Found it funny when you said what if it was a million pound supercar would they still have towed it for the sake of a couple

of hundred pound tax, Well yes they would. No exemptions. Seem them take a £100k mercedes on the interceptors show

that was stopped for no tax.

I think you have missunderstood, THE CAR WAS NEVER MINE.

 

Thats why the dvla dropped the charges, as they had zero evidence to prove i ever owned it, because i didnt.

 

The council towed it away because it was left on my drive by my ex, and despite contacting them to remove it they never did so it was towed as abandoned.

 

If this ever happens to someone please feel free to contact me for advice.

I think this response was meant for another post.
