Band 8 IELTS Letter Sample

Dear Sir or Madam,

I regret to inform you that the car that I hired from your Gachibowli branch has met with an accident. It is a Maruthi Suzuki Swift car with the registered number ……….

Let me explain, I was on my way to the waterfalls in Chikmanglur from Hyderabad. I entered the hilly area of the road at around 5:50 P.M when it was raining heavily. Then on a blind curve a scooter came from the opposite direction and I had to apply brakes immediately to avoid running over the scooter. In the process, I had hit a sign board on the left side and thus damaged the left headlight of the vehicle.

I acted promptly and took the vehicle to the nearest garage and got the headlight replaced with a brand new one. You can find the reports and the details about the accident and the repair attached to this letter. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Thank you for your understanding.

Yours sincerely
