Speeding Fine After Sale

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sold my car 2 weeks ago to another soldier in Senelager. I live in Fallingbostel. The car hadn't been driven for 3 months but was still insured. He drove it back to Senelager on the same day he bought it. Yesterday, I received an order to collect my speeding fine from the RAO.

    On selling the car, I received a Bill Of Sale for that date and have deregistered the vehicle (have the form to prove this).

    Am I liable to pay the fine?
    Was it my responsibilty to ensure that he was insured after he bought the car?
  2. Technically he shouldn't have driven the car until it was registered with BFG in his name ISTR!
  3. According to German law, he who committed the offence pays the fine. If you have proof that the sale was completed before the offence you are fire proof. CTOB in Rheindahlen will require this proof to inform the German authorities of the real culprits identity.
  4. Hope you get it sorted mate :D
