I found out today by finding it in the local press that I've been taken to court over not notifying the dvla for change of ownership... This was on 12/5/14 ..but this was in my old married name (changed by deed poll in nov/11) and to my old address which I moved from in nov/12... I've sold all vehicles in my name by part exchange to reputable main dealers.... I don't know what's going on but am extremely upset that the local press and the court have demeaned my good character...anyone got any ideas?

I part exchanged my old car in February of this year. It was my responsibility to send off part of the V5 to the DVLA, and they sent me an acknowledgement slip saying that they had updated my records and I was now no longer the keeper of the old car. From memory it was something like section 9 of the V5 and it had to be signed by both myself and the dealership. The dealership I bought from made a point of making sure the section was signed and informing me that it was my responsibility to return it to the DVLA.

 

 

I can only suggest that you check to see whether or not you completed and returned the correct part of the form. If you did, then contact the DVLA to find out what has happened.

You also have a responsibility to update your details with DVLA, this i believe includes a legal name change by deed poll or in your case a marriage or civil partnership etc.

1000 quid fine for not doing so (Although you are not normally pursued if you update the details yourself without first being promoted by them or caught by them.

 

With that in mind, arguing for a set aside on the basis you did not receive the paperwork due to not officially informing them of your name change and eddress etc im not sure how that would go. Someone with more experience will be able to help.

Can someone give me some advice...

 

I've just discovered I've been fined for not notifying dvla for change of ownership

 

...I found out from a newspaper article naming and shaming me.

 

.. This was dated 7th oct 2013 in my married name and previous address.

 

Now I changed my name by deed poll and moved by nov 2012.

 

. Removal company lost a lot of paperwork but I did eventually find the v5 and sent it in,

 

I must of done because I taxed my car at my new address,..

 

.my partner part exchanged the car on 21 nov 2013 over a month after the dvla summons me...

 

I'm not sure how to explain this or where I stand,

 

all my docs are correct but something went astray

 

and I've got to explain this to a judge on Friday!
