  • Received pcn but vrm is incorrect

    Hi there,

    I need some advice please,

    I had a pcn placed on my vehicle five days ago, at a hospital car park. When I've gone on the website to pay the fine it keeps telling no record found.

    I kept trying all week yet still the same thing, just to realize today, they have taken down my registration incorrectly.

    What should I do, I've been looking through all sorts of forums and I'm so confused. When I input the wrong registration the pcn comes up with photos.

    Thank you in advance ☺️

    I would do nothing!

    Keep the PCN and wait to see if they send you a Notice to Keeper.
    If you ever receive a NTK, it might well be non compliant with the regulations and so can be challenged.
    If & when received come back here for advice

      The only way they can find you is via the VRM (they ask DVLA who is the Registered Keeper of the vehicle with that VRM) so with the wrong VRM your name/address won't appear as the Registered Keeper So nothing they can do. Ignore them!

      As it was a PCN placed placed on your car (not an ANPR camera picture) the only way they could find you would be if their parking enforcement officer had taken photos of your car showing the correct VRM and they later realise what has happened and try to pursue you for payment by amending their PCN. But as Des8 says by that time they'll quite likely be non-compliant with several procedural rules and timescales.

      So do nothing and come back here if they ever make contact with you. NEVER admit to them that you were the driver.

        Hi guys,

        Thank you so very kindly for your replies, I ended up sending the company an email before I saw these replies.

        I merely wrote to them explaining I've never been an owner of any vehicle with that registration.

        They have only just replied demanding my name and address within 28 days of their email, then a few sentences down they say they want my details within 14 days or they will apply for those details with reasonable cause.

        That they will send all correspondence to the vehicle owner.

        They made a mistake with the registration but they do have pictures of my vehicle.

        what should I do ?

        Thank you again

          Pity you contacted them

          Now do nothing and hope they can't join up the dots.

            Let's say worse case scenario they send a NTO what should I do ? As the vrm is wrong on the pcn and still wrong on the email they've sent.

            I only wrote to them as most people were saying you shouldn't ignore a pcn regardless of it's incorrect. That most companies realise their mistakes and through out the pcn and that they can't re issue a pcn with the correct details

              What are we dealing with here?
              Most of your post seems to refer to a PARKING CHARGE NOTICE .issued by a private company
              However your last post refers to an NTO, which are sent out by local authorities dealing with PENALTY CHARGE NOTICES.

              Perhaps you could post up a redacted copy of what you have received
