Fine for Spurs boss more than car he didn&#39t even own puts DVLA situation in the spotlight

Court officials have promised to investigate right after Premier League manager Tim Sherwood found himself fined £200 for getting no car insurance.

The 45-yr-outdated Spurs boss, who lives in Dagnall, was also ordered to pay £110 charges and a £20 victim surcharge right after a hearing at Hatfield Magistrates Court.

But in accordance to his representatives Mr Sherwood – in Portugal right now with his crew for a vital Europa League clash against Benfica – had sold the auto in query long just before the alleged offence was committed.

Court records say that the offence was committed in Berkhamsted on Friday, August 16, last year.

But a club spokesman explained yesterday: “This is an administrative error that has nothing at all to do with Tim and is now becoming rectified.

“Tim has by no means driven a automobile without having insurance coverage and he had sold the vehicle in question prolonged ahead of the date when the offence was committed.”

An admin officer for Herts Court Service admitted that the court services is now ‘frequently’ getting informed about this type of situation by angry motorists.

He explained: “I do not even consider Tim Sherwood was aware of this going via the court and he was not really there.

“He was provided notification – a summons would have been sent to him by the DVLA, but he might not have obtained it since every little thing is done by Royal Mail.”

The matter is currently being looked into by the court’s legal staff.

A DVLA spokesman mentioned: “We evaluate the data we hold with the Motor Insurance Database and if a car seems to be uninsured an insurance advisory letter is issued to the keeper.

“If no action is taken by the keeper following this letter we issue a fixed penalty notice and eventually may take the matter to court.

“It is critical that the insurance coverage supplier for fleet autos is notified of all registration numbers of the vehicles covered.

“This assures that all fleet cars are integrated on the Motor Insurance coverage Database.”
