How to Appeal a DVLA Fine
Received a DVLA fine? Here are the things you can do about it –
– For not taxing or insuring your vehicle
– For not telling DVLA you no longer have the vehicle
You can appeal if you have proof that you have –
– Taxed your vehicle
– Had insurance for your vehicle
– Already told the DVLA that you are no longer the vehicle owner
– Changed your address but you did not inform DVLA
– Lost paperwork or you never received a reminder from DVLA
– Forgot or were away when you had to tax, insure or register your vehicle as off the road (SORN)
– You missed a direct debit payment because of a bank problem
Unless you have a valid reason, you must pay the fine as soon as possible.
If you do not pay the fine your vehicle could be clamped or crushed, and you prosecuted.
For vehicle tax and SORN fines, you can pay online, but all other fines must be paid by phone or post.
Your DVLA fine letter will tell you how, and how long you have to appeal.
You can appeal in writing (include your vehicle registration) to –
