Hi there.

 

I have recently had a letter from the HM Courts Historic Debt team about a fine in 2014 that was for £930!!!!

 

I called the Magistrates court today about this having read about statutory declarations etc and found out a bit more about the case.

 

The offence was that i had used a car on the 16th September 2013 without tax on the A5 through milton keynes.

 

I bought the car in November 2011 and sold it in April 2012, shortly before moving to a new house.

 

Luckily I have a photocopy of the receipt myself and the buyer signed when she took the car, so I am confident that in the case of driving the unlicensed vehicle I have proof it was not mine.

 

However my concern is that will the DVLA automatically come at me with a failure to notify charge.

I have been involved in assisting a friend with one of these charges a long time ago and am aware that I fulfilled my obligations under the interpretations act 1978 by posting this. Can they do that there and then at court, enter a new charge, or would they need to separately summons me for that.

 

Likewise should i prepare a defence for that possible charge anyway or should I ignore that as even being an issue until it is mentioned.

 

I am preparing a covering letter to the DVLA/Court explaining the above (that I had sold the car, and sent off the V5 before moving out of the rented property, and I had never heard any more on this until Saturday when the letter dropped through my letterbox from the Historic Debt team.

 

All advice would be appreciated :) Thankyou
