Hi guys!

I am a newbie to this forum, so please bear with me if I am posting in the wrong area. I could REALLY do with some help.

I have been living in my new house in Brixton for just under 1 year, and completely forgot to reregister my new address with the DVLA (I know absolute rookie error and completely my fault!!)
Yesterday I was made aware that I have been captured committing a '38l-Failing to comply with a sign indicating that vehicular traffic must pass to the specified side of the sign' multiple times, which have now been passed on to a debt collection agency. I actually had no clue that this was such a bad offence and it was being captured on camera, the road in question is right outside of my house, and multiple motorcyclists do the same as me every day. The PCNs that I am aware of are from Feb / April, so I dread to think how many more I have that are still sat with the council.

I am desperate to find out how many PCNs I have acquired, but Lambeth council will not speak on the phone or in person about PCNs, so I have to write to them, which means waiting up to 28 days for a response, in which time a lot of my PCNs could run up further cost by being passed on to the debt collection agency (escalating from £60 to £275).

I would really appreciate anyone's guidance on this, as I have not received any letters notifying me of the PCNs (or potential points?!) so was completely unaware of all of these charges. Has anyone been in the same position as me?

Thanks in advance

If these are council PCNs, press "report" and ask a mod to move to correct forum.

Not sure why you didn't think it was a bad offence. There would be carnage if everyone ignored keep left signs!

Indeed. Imaging motorcyclists doing the same coming in the other direction.

Get your V5C in front of you. Is the name and address 100% correct? The address on the V5C is the address the PCN will be sent to.
