Well I need to know what to do really I have never delt with this type of thing before I dont have the money just to pay it and forget it. and I am a little annoyed at even having to consider it as the bike was written off in an accident and V5 sent off as it should.I knew nothing about it till Jan when a letter from a debt collection agency arrived at my parents it took me 8 phone calls to find out it was from the DVLA and a further 6 before I found it it was for the bike that was written off over a year before.I was run round in circles byt he DVLA before they finaly advised what I needed to send them and I thought it was then done and dusted.But have now received a further letter from Marton High court enforment for almost double the amount and have no idea how to contest it.
No the bike was taxed and and legal I was hit by a car and the insurance company wrote the bike off and paid out the V5 was sent to the DVLA and I thought nothing more about it.
It was only a year later when the debt collection agency sent a letter to my parents address I found out the DVLA hadnt marked the bike as scrapped.When I found out I contacted them got the run around they said I had to send the V5 and I explained I had so didnt have it, after a few phone calls I was advised to send a letter form the insurance to a DVLA address the insurance company where happy to provide one along with all the details about who had scapped the bike and when so I sent this along with my new address.
Untill today I thought it was all done then I recive this letter from Marston High court enforcment.
No one seems to want to talk to me about it I got the run around by the DVLA and I carnt seem to find out what I do about the letter from Marston other than pay it and I dont have that sort of money
the letter dosnt give any information, other than the debt amount
I found out back in Jan that the DVLA where chasing becuase the bike wasnt taxed after June 2011 ( after it had been written off and V5 sent ) and wasn't sorn as it was written off.
they refuse to deal with anything over the phone and ask for everything in writing but then never seem to do anything.the only contact I have ever had are the orginal dept agency who refused to do anything other than ask for the money it took me 7 calls to find out the debt had been issued by the DVLA and then this letter from marstons.
both letter have been sent to my parents, an address I can only assume they got from a credit check as I only lived there for 5 months after going having to get an IVA and move up to derbyshire from Milton KeynesAnd untill the letter today I knew nothing about a court hearing.I have never been contacted directly by the DVLA the bike was still in MK when it got written off and I moved up here 4 weeks after the accident so never changed the address
