i was issued a pcn in a red route ,an auyomated ticket was issued , after the the increased to £195 ,by chance a letter was in my mailbox hand written try 115 as apose to the adress written on the pcn1/5

i contacted tfl and they said that they obtained this adress from dvla so they can reduce it to the original charge of 65 but should they not cancel it altogether ?


Do the DVLA have the correct address for you?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no they don't it seems


How has that come about please?

Did you give them the correct address?

Does it appear on your licence?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i did

i'm looking on my driving licence in front of me it has my correct adress



The fact that everything has gone to an incorrect address doesn't invalidate the PCN itself.

But it does mean that you have unanswerable grounds to make a statutory declaration to the effect that you didn't get the notices as I presume you did not?

Ultimately, this is their mistake or the DVLA's. Its nothing to do with you.

That would mean that the PCN is taken back to the issue of the original PCN and you have the option to pay at the reduced rate or appeal upon any grounds that you do have.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes, as I’m a disable batch holder and my badge was displayed at the time

3 hours is allowed from 10-4

i was outside those hours but NOT LONG as the rules say that you can park for a short time not defined which they can prove in video evidence should they choose

Can I ask them to cancel the pcn completely on those grounds?

Or have I reached my question limit with you already?


If you were outside the allowed hours then they could still pursue it.

It depends what the signs prohibit at the location.

It is probably worth appealing as it will be so old now they will probably have lost the evidence.

But you must deal with the statutory declaration first.
