Hi guys thanks in advance for any replys, all help appreciated.

 

I received a letter through the post to state that I had been charged with the offence of being the registered keeper of an uninsured motor vehicle.

 

 

The letter I received was sent to my old address (mums house), stating that I either need to reply guilty or not guilty etc to the above offence.

 

The vehicle in question was my old car that was left at my mums on the driveway for her to scrap/sell,

I had moved the insurance from this car onto my new car so at this point the car was uninsured.

 

 

Due to the car being in the way my mum had moved the car onto the road,

I'm not sure whether this is why I have been charged with the offence or whether it doesn't matter if it's on the road etc?

 

Next question is

 

 

I'm sure I never received a fixed penalty notice for the offence,

I pick up my post once every couple of months from my mum address

some things I still haven't changed address on,

 

 

is this a legitimate defence to ask the dvla if they can revert back to this stage as I no longer live at the address so didn't receive notification of the offence and the fine I had to pay ( which if I'm in the wrong I'm happy to pay)

 

If it is not a defence that I am no longer living at the address and the dvla are not willing to revert back to the fixed penalty notice stage what is my best bet moving forward?

 

 

Shall I plead guilty to the offence and provide this information in mitagating circumstances to the court?

 

 

If this is the case what sort of punishment is likely for the offence and would this constitute a criminal record.

 

Any help or advice greatly appreciated

Nope. The car was uninsured and on the road. Thats all that matters. "being in the way" has absolutely no bearing on it at all.


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..

What I mean is I understand that I'm in the wrong for having no insurance on the car I accept that. My question really is how likely are the dvla going to be willing to return to the fixed penalty notice stage as I don't live at that address no more so didn't recieve the fine via post

You should certainly let them know this if you want them to add a penalty for failing to notify them of a change in address!

sadly correct mind.

 

 

theres nothing you can do but swallow it

sadly though if they put 2 + 2 together

they may well smell a rat on the address issue too

and get you for that as well.

 

 

hope you've updated your driving licence atleast?


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, the whole DCA industry would collapse overnight.

@George girling

 

I have got exactly the same problem... moved house and didn't get the fixed penalty notice. How did you approach and what did you end up with?

 

Thank you!

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

You may or may not get a reply from the OP, it's better to start a new thread of your own and people will advise you.

 

Best, HB
