Two letters received for different offenses (ie photographed on the road without tax). The first time I was photographed coming back from Bath (Dec). I received this first letter in January and responded straight away as I mentioned. The second letter for an offense dated 09-11-12 I received on 01-03-13. I could receive more of these letters from that 5 month period as the DVLA seem to be months behind in their processing.
Thanks for that, kind of figured that was going to be the case.
Is there a maximum fine for this.
Time I went to see then and plead my case.
Your advice has been very helpful.
I hope I can talk to someone down there who has compassion. I have never failed to pay my tax before so I hope that'll count for something. The latest offence is actually prior to the one I've already paid.
One last thing before i sign off. What is the max fine, the form says £1000, also is that per offence?
Once again thanks.
PS do you want me to notify you of the outcome for your information.
Justice has been done. Went to see them and they updated the computer and closed the case. I shouldn't receive anymore letters. I suppose they looked at my quick response the first time and history of paying my tax and let it go. I do hope that really is the end of it. In reality i am very lucky as they never requested the 5 months back tax which I'd offered to pay. So the fine in a way covered the back tax i missed and the difference would have been the fine £40. Still the stress of the situation was punishment enough.
Thanks again for you advice, hope I dont need to use you again but if i do i know where to come.
