    Point taken...however what are the chances of bringing the fine down? as i cant really understand how the calculations for the fine is calculated by DVLA


    Did you update the address the vehicle was registered to from A to C. If not, the DVLA/magistrates/bailiffs are within their rights to simply contact the last known address. if the debt has risen in that time because they received no response, that will be because they weren't kept updated with an address.


    If part of the debt was bailiffs fees (£75 compliance + £235 enforcement) they are standard fees. If you can convince the mag court to take the debt back from bailiffs the fees may come off the debt.

    A fine is awarded by the court, not the DVLA. For that offence it would be a Level 4 fine (max £2.500), court costs etc. plus the DVLA may also claim for the missing excise duty.
