Hi All,

 

I was following my satnav and it told me to go into a bus lane (one that you couldn't get out off once you were in). A policeman then pulled along side me and just politely informed CCTV would have picked it up and it expect a ticket.

 

However, I've not long moved and my driving licence is still registered at my old address. I've got the form to change it but it might take a while.

 

So I want to check if I have this ticket so that I can pay it before any late payment fines etc. However, DVLA say its not their jurisdiction, its the police or maybe transport for London.

 

I've looked around and I can't find out who to contact. Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks

Sat Nav 101 - Common sense overrides Sat Nav instructions. Unless there are signs to the contrary, you stay out of bus lanes, unless you are driving a bus.

I think he needs a Sat Nag. I've got one - the wife. She's always telling me where to go!

It's not your driving licence that matters, it's the V5 vehicle registration document.

 

Can you not monitor post at your old address?

+ 1 to this. The ticket will go to the address on the V5, not the one on your driving licence (unless it's the same of course).

Even if, as the Police said, there being CCTV cameras (were there?) it is not absolutely certain they would have been in use or 'picked you up'.

 

But if they were there and it was within the bus lane operating times, it is not a strong hope - they want to make the CCTV pay for itself and operating it. And even make a profit!!!

 

As above - the Registered Keeper's address on DVLA records at the time/date is where it would go.

Hi Guys thanks for the guidance here :) And for moving me :)

 

How does the V5 work? Are you meant to change the address for this everytime you move?

 

Thanks

 

It is a legal requirement to advise of a change of address if you no longer are related in anyway to the address on the V5.

What form? To change your address on your driving licence, there is a section at the bottom of the counterpart to simply fill in your new address and send it off to the DVLA at no cost.

A stamp and envelope.
