Am I still responsible for paying it even though I don’t hold the V5C document?
Whilst we hope that all of our customers drive within the law, what happens if you get caught for speeding or receive a parking ticket whist driving your lease car or van, do you still have to pay even though you’re not the one in possession of the vehicle’s V5C document?
If when driving you get caught by a speed camera, then it’s normally the case that the registered keeper of the vehicle is sent a notice of intended prosecution by post within 14 days of the offence actually taking place.
However, with Personal Contract Hire (PCH) and Business Contract Hire (BCH) agreements, it’s your finance provider who remains the registered keeper and owner of your lease car or van for the duration of your chosen lease term, therefore any speeding tickets or other driving penalties that you incur whilst in possession of your lease car or van goes directly to them.
Please don’t assume though that because you’re not the registered keeper or owner of the lease car or van you’re driving that you don’t have to pay the tickets – they will be forwarded onto you by post. However, be aware that some finance providers do charge an administration fee for this service.
For this reason, it’s important that all your contact details are kept up-to-date, so that any speeding notices or parking fines can be forwarded onto you by your finance provider. If you move house or there’s a change in your contact details, please inform us immediately so that Clear Car Leasing and your finance provider have the correct information at all times.
