pcn received 75 days **PCNs CANCELLED AFTER ADMIN ERROR**

Recommended Posts

 

Hi 

 

I've received a PCN 74 days after alleged contravention.

On PCN they have vehicle noted as unknown.

 

Seriously can they issue a PCN this long after contravention

What's the contravention, some sort of moving traffic offence?

 

Is it a hire or finance vehicle?

 

Whose name and address is on the V5C registration document?

It was a no right turn by cctv camera and V5 in my name at my address

Owned 

The PCN was the day after I bought the vehicle

I changed ownership on day of purchase online - V5 online

I suspect that the DVLA had not updated their records by the time the council applied for details of the registered owner and therefore the pcn initially went to the previous owner.

 

The date the DVLA actually updated their record is on your V5c under Doc Ref:

 

Presumably the previous owner made reps that they weren't the owner at the time of the contravention.

 

Once the council were satisfied that the previous owner wasn't liable , they then issued the pcn to you, which they are allowed to do and the normal 28 day limit for service does not apply.

 

All of that takes time which will explain at least most if not all of the 74 day delay

 

I suggest you register at pepipoo.com. Don't use a hotmail email address. They will need you to post any documents/pcn you've recieved

I have checked the V5c has the date of purchased.

So the car was registered to me.

 

So the delay was not down to dvla giving them incorrect information.

 

Appeal ???

On your V5c .

Section 9

Doc Ref No is 11 digits followed by a date. That's tte date the DVLA updated the change of ownership.

If the council asked the DVLA for details on or before that date they would have been given the previous owners details. It's all done electronically.

So the council are just trying it on then as document date was before the contravention

Are you sure you are looking at the doc ref date and not just the effective date of transfer to you (ie when you bought it)?

Ok so. Totally confused now.....

The date below doc ref is also acquired date.

 

I'm reading this from the box right hand corner of the first page of V5

 

 

😕 On the inside log book your right 😮

On the front it says date of purchase in  but inside it has a date that's 13 days later 😲

 

so ooops I appealled them today 

 

Under section 2.4 9 of code of practise of operation of CCTV 😕

 

i even checked there had been no delay in DVLA providing information.

Letter from  local authority today.

Both tickets cancelled due to an administration error!

 

Code of practice is worth check, I think, before any  considering payment of these CCTV issued tickets
