Sorry if I'm missing the point but I'm not sure what you are asking?
how to know if there has been a court judgment has been made against me or any fine ?
Has anything been added to the licence by the DVLA? Or have you not sent it in since then?
no i didnt send it yet as police ask me to wait for the letter from them?
Do the DVLA have the right address for your vehicle and have they always had?
i was driving a company car but even my company didnt received any thing in writing. as i said i was in process of changing my personal address when i had this penalty . but i gave my new address to police officer.
Did you get a redirection on your old address?
Ok.Sorry to keep on about this but it will change everything. Who was the registered keeper ? You or the company?
Ok.What was the FPN for?
i was using phone while driving
Ok. You have probably avoided a penalty.If this is use of a mobile phone then they should have been pursuing you not the registered keeper.You were not the registered keeper and so they should have written to the address you gave them. They would have a justification for writing to the old address had you been the registered keeper because they have to write to the address at the DVLA but thats not the position. All letters should have gone to the latest address.If you received nothing then they are way of time now to take any action.You can check for certain by asking the DVLA but almost certainly nothing has happened as a result of this. They do sometimes forget to summons.Please rate my answer with OK SERVICE or more and then I will continue for free.

the penalty notice i have with me it also has my new address on it .
Yes, there couldn't be a justification for writing elsewhere here
