Advantis work with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to recover outstanding fines.
Your details have been passed to us because your vehicle has not been taxed or had a statutory off road notification (SORN), resulting in a fine which the DVLA has asked Advantis to recover.
Non-payment of the penalty is a civil offence under Section 7a of the Vehicle Excise and Registration Act 1994 and, if your vehicle remains unlicensed, your vehicle could be clamped, removed and impounded incurring release and storage fees.
You must insure and tax your vehicle if it is not SORN. If you don’t, you’ll automatically be fined for not having a SORN.
If you have taxed your vehicle or declared a SORN since receiving notification of the fine, the penalty is still payable.
Further information about taxing your vehicle or making a SORN declaration can be found on the www.gov.uk website
Updating your driving license details will not automatically update your vehicle details. You would need to inform the DVLA of both license and vehicle changes.
DVLA will require proof of scrappage (certificate of destruction). Please contact us so we can gather the necessary information and help you with your query.
If the DVLA were not notified or the V5C not received then as the Registered Keeper, you will remain liable. If you believe the DVLA were notified then please contact us so we can investigate this for you.
