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?

    This Mcdonalds is a well known scam site and it seems
    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 :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    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?

    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.
