    Post Four of the Newbies Sticky covers DRP entirely. Please read it carefully, then the rest of the thread, so you are ready if UKPC ever try court.

    On a warm and sunny bright morning in the middle of our hottest summer for over 40 years, when at that time in the morning the ticketer can earn his bonuses so easily, because most transgressors are fast asleep and he can hot-tail it from there before anyone realises they've been ticketed, so not having to face any flack. In fact he could be back in his bed, day's bonus earned, before you even get out of yours. Easy money. That's how the industry operates.

    The driver has not responded to any of the paperwork sent so far.
    Why didn't you?

    Iím getting more confused by the minute. On some threads Iíve read it states that UK PARKING CONTROL. Can NOT get names of registered keeper of the cars they give parking tickets to.but in this case it was NOT address to the KEEPER it was to there FULL NAME . so they must get the details from DVLA. As stated above the driver has not responded to any letters from UK PARKING CONTROL or DRP. the advice Iím looking for is should the driver contact uk parking control to appeal or Leave it . The parking charge was on the window screen of car so not sure about the neighbour spying . They must start work very early to be issuing tickets at 4.58am
    As for the DRP (debt recovery) am I right that I should ignore this letter

    Where does it say that? Nowhere I'd suggest.

    in this case it was NOT address to the KEEPER it was to there FULL NAME . so they must get the details from DVLA.
    Of course they do - as they have for years and years.

    the advice I’m looking for is should the driver contact uk parking control to appeal or Leave it
    Too late. Ignore anything now (including guff from DRP) unless you get a Letter Before Court/Action from UKPC or their solicitors, or a real court claim from the Northampton CCBC.

    The Sticky is the clear answer - as reading it gives you the most consistent and up to date info.

    Searching-out random threads runs the risk of turning-up horrendously outdated stuff, which is no use to anyone now.

    There is no way that UKPC can get the keeper's details, unless you tell them, which of course you won't be doing.

    UKPC can get keepers details from the DVLA ... NOT THE DRIVER

    keithP would have meant they cannot get drivers details

    The DVLA told them, obviously. Same as they do with every9one in a ATA.

    You have managed to find a post of mine from last May when UKPC were banned from getting keeper details from the DVLA:
    forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?p=74254827#post74254827

    ...and then very selectively quoted from it too.

    Why doesn’t the out of date info get deleted from the newbies link it’s very confusing when you read through all the posts looking for ways to sort this out. The only advice I’ve received is read the newbies post and ignore DRP letter.
    Wouldn’t uk parking control accept £100 from keeper now. It would cost more than that taking day off work to go to court surely

    You are not getting this are you, you are in a scam loop, The lowlife dregs at UKPC hand over the collection of their fake charges to a debt recovery company who specialise in frightening people on a no win no fee basis.


    Debt Recovery Plebs hang on a £60 bunce fee for the delight of sending out scary letters.
    At that point to honour their contract UKPC won't communicate with you as their tame debt Muppets are now screwing you too.


    This isn't about parking management is a game called Greed Monopoly


    The regulars on here have seen everything, follow their advice, don't try your own methods you will get stung by the hornets!

    Can anyone tell me what happens after you ignore the debt collectors letters do you automatically get a court summons?

    No it's not automatic it depends on a number of variables; if the landowner has agreed the PPC can take court action, if the PPC can see a financial justification, multipul tickets are a good bet, or even if they pull your name out of the hat who knows.


    Some like Parking Eye love the court threat, others are more cautious, here are your present odds with these bottom feeding millionaires:
