thank you, u are correct i did confused PCN with FPN,mcovet wrote:Dont confuse a PCN (penalty charge notice) issued by councils for parking/bus lane contraventions on PUBLIC ROADS, with FPNs issued by police for speeding/insurance/red route etc contraventions. FPNs must be declared, PCNs do not, so assuming your 2011-2012 FPNs are actually PCNs then no need to declare.
As regards private companies on PRIVATE land (supermarkets etc) it's not either a pcn or fpn, it's an invoice for a breach of contract for parking on private land. I NEVER pay those as they make it look like it's smth serious and official while being riddled with irregularities. I once spent £400 and 3.5 hours in a shopping centre who then wanted £80 for overstaying the free 2 hour parking. As it's a private matter, i didnt have to disclose te driver's id (my wife) and so told them to eff off or i'd complain to police/british parking association etc if they persist with the harassment.
i didnt go to the court and thanks for the reply, I have one more questionujjwaldey wrote:FPN has no spent period - it is not a conviction (unless a fine was awarded by the court)
You shouldn't have more than 1 FPN in the last 12 months. The FPN in 2007 is irrelevant (assuming you didn't have a fine awarded by a court).
