    Taken to court by UK Parking Control Ltd 23rd Mar 18 at 3:32 PM

    I've been taken to court for the sum of £770 by UK Parking Control Ltd (Through SCS Law) for 4 parking fines, all from May 2016.

    The driver parked outside a car park on some private land by a university library and not directly in the car park.

    I'm very confused and lost on how to approach the whole situation and would much appreciate any help I can get.

    Is the first thing I should do the 'Acknowledgment of Service' so I get extra time to reply?

    Kind regards,


    My issue date was 12/3/2018 and my date of service is 21/3/2018

    21/03 date is on the MCOL platform so I would hope that is what counts
    Only because you put it in, but that date hugely exceeds the max 5 days for service. I WOULD NOT HOPE OR 'TRY'.

    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
