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?

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