Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Enforcement of Road Traffic Debts (Certificated Bailiffs) Regulations 1993 by increasing the fees to be charged by certificated bailiffs for the enforcement of certain road traffic debts in accordance with section 78 of the Road Traffic Act 1991.
For levying distress, where the sum demanded and due does not exceed £100, the fee is increased from £20.00 to £25.00; and where the sum demanded and due exceeds £100, the fee is increased from 20% to 25% on the first £200.
For taking possession, where a person is left in physical possession (close possession), the fee is increased from £4.50 to £5.00 each day; and where walking possession is agreed, the fee is increased from 45p to 50p each day for the first 14 days. All other fees remain unchanged.
