I set up DD with DVLA 2015.

 

DVLA confirmed DD was set up and supplied a letter saying so.

 

Thinking my car was taxed, and having comfort DVLA would take payments as needed, DVLA has not requested/taken payment.

 

Car was not, therefore, taxed. I discovered this with a lovely man put a wheel clamp on my car, with £260 release fee (£160 later refunded once taxed) but then 2 weeks later, letter from DVLA with fine of £216.

 

Replied to DVLA fine letter saying it's their fault.

 

The DD letter from DVLA in 2015 says exactly 'you do not have to do anything'.

 

I am fuming.

So have you contacted the DVLA now?

 

I suggest that you call them and then follow up with a letter confirming whatever you have discussed in the court.

 

Let us know what happens

Hi.

Fodder misunderstood.

I've only received a fine letter demanding the sum.

I've written to DVLA saying I had set up DD and it's their fault. Not yet heard back but it'll be useful if there's any advice/expectation of my challenging them?

I would hope you receive an apology and a refund of £100 since you were not fully reimbursed that release fee.

 

Personally, I would be thinking about making a claim in the small claims court if this is not forthcoming.

 

Don't even get me started on that unlawful fine.

 

Are you able to consult a citizens advice bureau or law centre?

Um, could you have not done what the rest do and check your dd's each month?

 

Maybe the bank would authorise it.

 

Maybe you were short of funds the first month...

 

Maybe, just maybe,

the dvla did call for it and something went wrong your end?

 

Have you asked the bank if it was ever called for?

 

Did you check your statements for the days the money was due to come out to check money was in there?

Hi

 

As you done this online I assume via DD did you receive an email from DVLA to notify you that the DD had failed? https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-tax-direct-debit/payment-fails

(look at 6. If a Direct Debit payment fails)

What's the point of small claims against the DVLA? Its almost impossible to enforce with neither hceo ot county court bailiffs able to enforce against them.

 

Unlawful fine? The car was untaxed. Therefore they were fined. The question is who's fault wad the non payment. We need more detail yet.
