    DRP Plus overstaying at McDonalds 30th Nov 17 at 9:44 AM
    I recently moved home and have not yet updated Logbook, I received in the post today a letter from Debt Recovery Plus Ltd asking for £160.00 for overstaying at McDonalds Gatwick Airport

    The original ticket was issued by MET Parking Services.

    This is the first letter I have received regarding this matter as previous letters if sent were not forwarded.I have been told that if payment of £160.00 is not paid by 7th December further action will be taken.

    What can I do about this now?

    Mcdonalds don't give a damn

    First point is NEVER use this Mcdonalds again whilst
    they employ parking cowboys/scammers.

    Second point is please read the Newbies thread on here
    and read up ON DRP.

    DRP are just timewasters who spout rubbish and
    have ZERO powers

    IGNORE DRP

    You could be getting another fine (a real one) through the post for up to £1,000 if you don’t do that. At the same time you need to do a separate notification for your driver’s licence - there’s no read-across from one to the other.

    Are DRP now corresponding with your new, or your former address?
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    AFAIU the £1,000 fine is for not updating the driving licence; the V5C only requires a serviceable address - i.e. somewhere that the keeper can receive correspondence. I'm not sure there's a fine for not doing so.

    However it's a good idea to get both updated (separately) ASAP ... the driving licence MUST be done immediately.
