October 2013. My son had lost the counterpart and requested additional time to get a duplicate from DVLA which was granted and took us to mid Feb 14. Because he was starting a new job early March for which he needed to present his licence and counterpart he inadvisedly delayed in sending it to be endorsed and now has this threat of further proceedings from Kent Police
It was through roadworks on a motorway where he was doing 70 and the temporary limit was just 50
He has paid the fine and had his licence endorsed. What we do not know about are the proceedings that Kent Police are now instigating because he was late in returning the licence to be endorsed with the points etc
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX why would the court accept payment of the £100 fixed penalty fine and go through process of endorsing the licence, only to then have to undo all of that because he was late in submitting the licence? Your clarification of that would be appreciated. Can he do anything to "arrest" the proceedings by contacting Kent Police or the Court and plead stupidity, naivety or both? He is a recently qualified Chartered Surveyor and the new job he just started (which is why he held onto his licence) doubled his salary from his previous graduate trainee job. Is it current salary that is taken into account or that at the time of the offence?....I probably can work that one out but your confirmation appreciated! Kind regards, Karl
...and can we make any representations before we receive any proceedings - HM Courts & Tribunal Service only said he MAY receive a summons in due course - in order to pre-empt further action?
