It was an old copy of my license that was renewed in 2011 and I didn't notice that it was old. I was moving house so was surprised and delighted that I had found the paper part of my license and proceded to use it, I did read on the form that I should check the license number matched the plastic license which I did, what i didn't check was the revisioun number to the right.

I sent it just in time to get it to them on the 9/11 for next day deliver and it was due by 11/11. they confirmed (when I phoned them in January) that they had received it on time but that the license revision number was wrong.
I didn't get the letter that they wrote to me on 24/12 (having moved out on 19/12) notifying me of this problem and apparently I had until 28/12 (they also mentioned this on the phone) to get it back to them but my tenant held my mail so I didn't get any of this until mid January.
Hi Jo, I was in was doing 56 in a 40 mph hour zone, the entire road was 60 and 70 mph and I didn't notice that it went down to 40 for about a half a mile section - driving on my own late at night so no other traffic to see the speed dropping either. Luckily for me I wasn't going 70!
It was on the A127 in Essex.
Do you think I should go to the court and represent myself, reply by postal response or get a solicitor to represent me?
Great, thanks for your advice.
