Hi good evening all, I will gratefully listen to any advice on this one...



I am guilty of forgetting to tax my car for a month, it then got clamped outside my house, I immediately taxed the car and I think I paid a fine over the phone for the month it wasn't taxed, then paid £100 to get my car unclamped. Unfortunately clamped on a Saturday morning there was nobody available to unclamp my car until Monday, very annoying and disrupting on many levels, anyway...



Sounds stupid but the reason I didn't tax my car is that I didn't receive any reminder through the post as I have with every other car. So the thought of taxing it just didn't cross my mind. Until clampy.



This was not the end of my troubles surprisingly for me.



I received a requisition 'requiring' me to appear at court for keeping an 'unlicensed mechanically propelled motor vehicle' and I have to pay £22.09 outstanding duty and £90 towards court costs.



Apparently I was sent a notice under 'section 46 of the vehicle excise and registration act' requesting my details of ownership. I do not know what on earth this is and I know damn sure that I never received any letter from the DVLA about this.



My thoughts are that along with my tax reminder letter, the apparent 'section 46' was sent to the wrong place, maybe the car dealership where I purchased it? The only document I received was the V5C with me identified as the registered keeper.



What is the best solution to this problem, I sure don't want to scrape the barrel and pay these dogsbodies what little I have at present. Things are tight.



Any thoughts/suggestions, i'm still not really sure what they are accusing me of!?



yours hopefully.

Don't know answer to your question, but does the V5C show your correct address? If so it would be very surprising if DVLA sent letters to anywhere else. For private individuals I'd think they only hold one current address, the address of the registered keeper shown on the V5C. More likely Royal Mail has lost it down the back of the sorting office sofa.
