What happens next

We will attempt to resolve your complaint as fairly and as promptly as possible. We will investigate your complaint quickly but to ensure we reach a fair outcome for you, we want to conduct a through investigation and this can take time. We will assess the details of your complaint thoroughly, fairly and impartially to reach a decision. To help us to do this, please make sure you have provided us with the following information;

  • Your Name, Address and Telephone Number
  • The Registration Number of you vehicle, Account Number or Reference Number
  • A clear description of your concern or complaint
  • Details of what you would like us to do to put things right
  • Any support information or documentation

We aim to resolve the majority of complaints over the telephone. Where we believe that the complaint is not related to us, but is answerable by another party, we will forward your complaint to that party and inform you of our actions in writing.

Keeping you updated

Our aim is to reach a conclusion within 28 days of receipt of your complaint, but this can depend on the complexity of your case. If we haven't resolved your complaint by this time we'll ensure you are kept updated on the progress of our investigations. In the event that your complaint has not been resoolved within 8 weeks from the date of receipt, we will provide you with a further update on the progress of our investigation, explaining why we are not yet in a position to provide you with a decision.

Notification of our decision

Whenever possible we'll always try to inform you of our decision by telephone. In cases where we have not resolved your complaint by the end of the next business day, we'll also confirm our decision in writing to you in a final response letter. This letter will detail a full account of our findings and the rationale for our decision.
