Hi All,
I promise that I've read the newbie threads...  o:) 
But, I can't find an example of the letter I've received and as it doesn't have any of the usual headers, I want to check its a PCN?
This is the first letter I've received on the ticket as I've moved house and so I've missed the appeal period.
If this is a PCN, from what I've read on here, and the current position, I understand the steps to be:
- Ignore this letter
- Write to ECP and update my address with them
- Update address with DVLA
- Wait for another letter?

Please could someone just confirm this is a new format PCN (that has been edited to try and look nice during the pandemic) and that the above is correct?
Thanks in advance :)

    Ignore it, as ever.
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).

  • Same as the letter I got 3 days ago, although you got a £5 discount for some reason.

    You told us that you had read the stickies, did you skip the bit about DCAs?
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    This I this is not a new format - there were threads about it here by IIRC the second or third week of lockdown.
