hi im writing on behalf of a friend as the caggers have been so good to me, i hope they can help.

 

my friend, sillyly in his youth (10 years plus) made a lot of messes on his license.

 

things he cant remeber such as driving with no insurance,

going through red lights,

parking fines etc.

 

he didnt pay these and moved around somehwta.

 

i believe he was banned.

 

we are talking about 13 years ago here and he cant really remeber.

 

he is looking for work and needs a license to do most jobs.

 

what will happen with these fines?

 

he is financially penniless to put it nicely.

 

could he face prison?

 

the dvla have asked has he ever lived at his previous address which was not mentioned....as he applied for a first license.

 

what should he do?

 

he doesnt wanna face prison due to all the unpaid fines and by what he says they were around 3k,

 

he deffo dont need baillifs visiting. should he say no?

 

what will happen.

 

awaiting your help. thanks

I would have though as the stat time is 6 years for debts and also if he was banned then unless for life it would have ended by now. also any points would have more than likely have dropped off. However the best way of doing it is to apply for it the usual way and see what dvla say. He will most likely get a new one. Parking fines i wouldnt worry about too much either.


I hate bailiffs. Let me know if you have had a problem with them. I am sure i could upset them.

I think they are. Depends on who they gave the debt to persue. Etc. Cant see it coming to court after such a long time.

Magistrates fines are not time barred and they will eventually catch up with him/you once you pop back up their radar. Maybe if you get stopped by old bill??

As above, court judgements do not become statute barred. He really should deal with this now and get it out of the way. It could knock him back in later life should he want a mortgage etc; things have a funny way of coming back to life.

They have picked it up because he may probably still have a licence.

It sounds like he has applied for a brand new provisional licence, but the DVLA have a suspicion that this "new" person is the same as someone they have on their existing database with a driving licence number already issued, which of course seems to be true.

 

If he wants to face this problem "head on" and get is sorted, then I suggest he replies confirming that is an old address and see how it develops from there.

Agreed. He is going to have to face this at some point.

 

Prison is extremely unlikely - even if he has been given a sentence in his absence it will be a matter of procedure and some good advice to get it looked at again.

 

Most likely is that it is with Bailiffs and he might have to get it taken back to court.

 

He will need to "man up" to this at some point. And it sounds like his options are running out if he has a mortgage.

I personally dont think any fines are live. Otherwide they would have discovered him by now. One way or another.

They're certainly live in the sense that they can still be pursued if anybody is chasing them. Whether or not they actually will be pursued is another matter entirely - something like £2 billion in fines are outstanding so he would hardly be the first person to not pay and be forgotten about.

 

The DVLA aren't involved in the process of collecting the fines - their interest in asking if he's the same person who held the old licence is to check whether he has to take a new test/ extended test, or whether there are any endorsements which should be applied to his new licence (drink driving endorsements have to be recorded for 11 years, for instance). The DVLA marrying the two licences together won't automatically trigger the bailiffs coming round unless there is someone out there still looking for him and checking his DVLA records periodically for a new address. After 10 years, many updates of computer systems etc I'd be surprised if there was, but you never know.

 

If the worst happens and it does catch up with him it's very unlikely that he'll go to prison. Courts have strong guidance only to jail people for non-payment of fines when all other methods of enforcement have failed, and when the offender is actively refusing to pay as opposed to merely unable to pay. He should be able to pay by instalments so as long as he's wiling to come t some reasonable arrangement within his ability to pay he should be OK.
