hello all , ive just been sent a letter from the dvla to inform me they are taking court action against me for failing to notify a change of keeper ( the v5c was returned but no surprise there eh :roll: ).

i previously wrote to them explaining i had in fact sent off the v5c all filled in and i would robustly defend this if i was taken to court i also asked for full details of all lost or misplaced post within the dvla but as i expected i did not recieve this information .

my question is do i need to send a payment to recieve this information as i think i should from memory is it a £1 or some such amount .

also how long do they have to send me such information as i will be useing this as part of my defence in the forthcoming court action any help here would be appreciated .

I have been stung twice by the DVLA, was actually taken to court for no reason but because DVLA never responded to my registered post letters I had to travel all the way to Swansea Magistrates just to plead not guilty! DVLA phone number is completely pointless and their staff are so rude even if your trying to enquiry if they have received your letters.


DVLA is a mess and Google is flooded by people who have had massive issues with this pathetic government agency!

DVLA isnt a government agency. It is a private company contracted to the government.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

DVLA is an executive agency of the Department for Transport.



Send a dedicated letter asking them to supply the exact subject you require to:

I recall seeing something similar to this on a previous thread. DVLA lost the case because they couldn't show they hadn't received it. I believe but there was another legal issue to it as well and it might be worth looking through previous DVLA threads but I seem to remember the court queried whether DVLA could actually bring an action at all on the issue. Does anyone else remember this?
