Problem with road tax.....gotta go to court for 1 day late..HELP PLEASE
Last year september I purchased a car with with no Road tax and I parked it in front of my house and it was locked and given a fine of £250. Basically I bough a car on saturday and I didn't buy road tax until Tuesday because I couldn't get my insurance sorted so I have to waited until Tuesday.
However when I woke up on Tuesday morning,I found my car front wheels has been locked with a fine notice because of no road tax. I rang up and pay for the fine then I bough the road tax the same day. I have also brough it to DVLA car compound to prove I have got road tax. They refunded me 120 through my bank and since then its ok. However 2 weeks ago I received a letter that I will need to go to court in august because of this problem.
I was very surprised and piss off so I wrote a letter to make an appeal against this decision and send it back to them along with the original letter. In the letter I have explained to them that I bough the car on Saturday so its weekend,there is no way I can get road tax from post office at weekend. I have also explained to them in the letter that I couldn't buy it on Monday as I couldn't get my insurance sorted. However I have bough it next day (Tuesday) and paid for the fine.
Since then it has been a week and I am still waiting for a reply back. Did anyone has problem before. Can someone on here please advise me what should I do.
Any help will be much appreciated.
