Good afternoon everyone,

I operate a taxi service in Devon and am in the process of appealing a PCN on behalf of a driver, that was issued 02/01/2020 (Happy New Year!)
I appealed as they had the wrong time (09:02) on the ticket and our vehicle was nowhere near the airport at that time.
I then received a letter via e-mail from them (VCS) dated 27/01/2020 saying "Please be advised that the original Charge Notice issued to you contained an administrative error and a corrected Charge Notice has been re-issued"
So, next to arrive (Via post) was a PCN/HN issued 27/01/2020 stating the time as 19:02.
I appealed again, as they would not have been aware of their "administrative error" had I not told them our car was not there at the original time of Contravention.
This second appeal has come back as unsuccessful, next step is to appeal to the IAS or pay £60 by 03/03 or £100 by 17/03.

Could someone please tell me if It's worth me carrying on with this battle or do I pay the £60 by the 3rd March to make it all go away.

Many thanks in advance,

Was the Notice to hirer addresses to an individual or a comply?

It is not up to you to prove you were not the driver, it is up to them to show that you are.

So the hire contract is with the limited company and you are merely the contact name and not the driver.

So a response back to them pointing out that you had not mentioned the delay of the letter arriving rather the failure of them complying with the requirements of POFA and so being unable to hold the hirer liable. The hirer was a limited company and hence could not have been driving and you are a mere officer of the company responding to the paperwork and not the driver.
