they have used Form 144APR.
THere is a statement of facts : that I was the registered keeper of an unisnured motor vehicle on 28/07/15.
There is a notice of penalties (from s144A (1) of the RTA 1988 - stating the max penalty on conviction is £1000 plus costs.
It then offers the option of pleading guilty or not guilty but does not offer a fixed penalty fine.
That came in the "final notice" dated 9 September, but there was no deadline to pay by - although it did say "immediately".
So, on the requisition there appears to be no option to pay a fixed penalty.
Obviously I did comply with the original notice and make a SORN, but only once I had returned from holiday
What is the process for doing this? should it be via the court papers and response or should I call them directly? Is there a DVLA office that I can contact directly?
THere is no direction on any of the forms regarding getting advice; had there been I would have followed up sooner.
Further evidence is that the battery was dead anyway and I had to get it jump started in August as it hadn't been driven for months.
Do you think that you will be able to answer the final part of my question that I sent in 20 mins ago?
