So I sold my motorbike a couple of months back, didn't have the V5 etc. So the new owner contacted the DVLA and asked for one. They then contacted me saying the new owner had requested it and that I need to send off some info (like the green slip) or something (which I didn't have). So anyway, few months later I get a letter through at my dads, whos house I use as a postal address. The letter says I owe them £55! reduced to £35 if I pay by the 22nd March. What the bloody hell? It never said anything about a fine in the previous letter, it literally just said If i ignore it they'll do the rest.


Any help? Could I just tell them I never got the letter?!

You didn't tell them you had sold the bike. You cannot rely on the fact that the new owner asked for a new V5, it was your responsibility to inform DVLA.


As you didn't have the V5, you should have at least sent them a letter stating you had sold the bike. I can' see you getting out of the fine on this one.
