In July I purchased a van and on the same day I completed the part 9 of the V5C and posted it. At the time I did not get proof of postage however after few weeks now DVLA are now issuing me with a fine of £80 as I have not declared.


They have asked to me provide proof and I did made a copy of the original V5C before posting it now even then at this juncture they are not happy with the evidence. They are demanding that i have to pay the £80. I strongly disagree with their decision as it was not my fault if my post went missing.


Is there anything I can do to challenge this late licensing penalty. Thank you for reading

If you didn't take out the licence when you purchased the vehicle, you would be liable for the penalty. It has nothing to do with sending anything to the DVLA.

I suspect that the OP has confused Caggers by talking about purchasing a van then submitting a part 9 section of the V5c.


Perhaps he can confirm if my suspicion is correct that the penalty imposed is for a vehicle that he put in part exchange? This is where the part 9 slip comes into play to inform the DVLA/move the responsibility for the vehicle to the motor trader. If it was a main line dealer, he should have the means to electronically SORN the vehicle (even though not registered to him) until the vehicle is sold on.

My time as a Police Officer and subsequently time working within the Motor Trade gives me certain insights into the problems that consumers may encounter.

I have no legal qualifications.

In July I did a part exchange with a motor trader,

I completed the part 9 as I was no longer the registered keeper of that vehicle.



I immediately posted the part 9 to DVLA to inform them that I am no longer the owner of the vehicle.



It would appear that DVLA has not recieved my completed slip and thus imposing a fine for failing to inform that my vehicle had been sold to a motor trader.


Hope that clarifies any confusion
