    Time Limit on PCN 2nd Oct 17 at 2:27 PM
    Hi. I am totally new to this, so apologies if the answer was easy to find elsewhere, but I have just received today, two Parking Charge notices from Parking Eye that date back to the 02/05/17 and 03/05/17, which is 4 months ago. Although I am the keeper of the vehicle I can not be certain who was driving now. Is there any time limit after which tickets can not be issued? Many thanks. Lawson1251

    You have ''golden tickets'' (our phrase for a too-late NTK from PE) so you WILL win at POPLA!

    Read post #3 of the NEWBIES thread where a ''golden ticket'' is shown as a picture link. The BPA lets their beloved fee-paying members send out random NTKs for about six months but the good thing with a late one (received more than 14 days after the parking event) is, the registered keeper (or hirer/lessee?) appeals and they WIN, as long as the driver is never implied or admitted.

    Don't choose 'driver' on the appeals drop-down. Choose 'registered keeper' if you are, or 'hirer/lessee' for a lease/company car.

    Use the template from the NEWBIES thread post #1, same for each one (if it's a hire/lease car, use the one lower down the first post of the sticky, the version written by Edna Basher).
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
