The driver has a PCN for returning within 6mins in a "No Return Within 1hr" car park managed by Northern Parking Services of 22 Wenlock Rd, London, N1 7GU.

The driver & was totally unaware such a rule existed! The driver certainly doesn't have £100 spare to pay for a ridiculous 'breach' of their so called T & C, s!

We will obviously appeal as a different driver then revisited the car park!

Any help in the appeal letter would be very much appreciated 👍🙂

Ask them to identify the drivers on each occasion as any alleged contract is with the drivers at the time and not the keeper, otherwise go away.

Does the POFA not allow them to chase the keeper for the money if no driver is admitted? Just wondering as a prev post from Redivi said this is what they are able to do (like Parking Eye)?


No, POFA simply allows them to pursue the Keeper for any charges for which the driver is liable. If there were two different drivers, then neither of them has breached any terms and conditions, and therefore neither of them has any liability for any parking charge. Hence, there is nothing to hold the Keeper liable for in the first place.


Oh I see... Is this PCN unenforceable then if its 2 different DRIVERS & they are unable to prove otherwise? Oh

It's down to a district judge deciding on the balance of probabilities whether the totality of evidence and testimony supplied to them indicates that it was two separate drivers or the same one.

The latest BPA Code of Practice state the following in 23.3:-

Under POFA 2012, you can gain the right to recover
unpaid charges from keepers only if particular conditions
have been met.
However, if the keeper did not give you details about the driver or hirer, or if the driver or hirer refuses to acknowledge their liability, you would be able to pursue the registered keeper.

Seems the provisions lie within Schedule 4 of POFA 2012......
I've read the long Section 4......is it purely just about identifying the driver first...?

Quite simply, if the keeper does not know or will not name the driver then they have the right to pursue the keeper for the driver's unpaid parking charge.

Naming the driver dispenses of the need of PoFA... (Generally the driver should not be named, but there are times when it's a good idea)

But only if they get POFA correct.

POFA is law, BPA Code of Practise is only guidance.

Yes, of course. Some ATA 'advice' is dubious at best. Particularly, the one supporting the view the keeper is always liable after the 28 days has expired - shame that's not what the law says...

Images posted by the company (at seperate visits stated on PCN) - I'm assuming will be assessed by a Judge? Just assessing the strength of asking them to identify the drivers??
