How can I help with this?
I have a court requisition on 13/02/2013 and I would like to know how best to proceed with the initial question? I also have send back a response of guilty or not guilty to the alleged offense.
I am not guilty of this as I did not have the car from 21/03/2012 and I can prove this with a letter from audi, however, because the DVLA system has my name down as the registered keeper on 07/08/2012 it has fallen into my lap. My details were changed on 28/08/2012 to not be the registered keeper.
What is the possibility that I will get fined for this?
about two months before 07/08/2012
No I did not send it recorded delivery.
I have copied a snippet of the letter for your reference.
Statement of Facts
On the 07/08/2012 the defendant was the registered keeper of an uninsured motor vehicle, registration mark ML09EWF.
In accordance with Section 12(7) of the Magistrates' Court Act 1980, the above statement of facts will be read out in court, if you inform the clerk of the court that you plead guilty and wish the court to deal with the case in your absence.
Notice of Penalties
Derived from Section 144A(1) of the Road Traffic Act 1988. The maximum penalty on conviction is £1000.00 being level 3 on the standard scale. The prosecutor will also ask for a minimum contribution of £110.00 towards legal costs.
Even if I can prove that in reality I was not the registered keeper of the vehicle does this matter? I have a letter from audi saying that the vehicle was transferred on 21/03/2012?
