My old MG has been on SORN for nearly 3 years. Moved house early November and sent off change of address forms a few weeks later.
It appears that change of address/renewal letter crossed in post and went to my old address (which I didn't receive for various reasons!) and first I knew about it was when a letter from DVLA came to my new address a few weeks ago advising me of a £40 fine (£80 if not paid by today) due to non-declaration.
I've appealed via letter but have paid the £40 today as this was last day before it increased to £80 and appeal could take another 2 weeks. I was also advised by the clerk that I am due another £80 odd quid for the time when car wasn't declared SORN
Am I liable for this, even though the car was offroad anyway? Surely they can't fine for late SORN declaration AND charge me for a car that hasn't been on a road.
