I did not have insurance and the genuine reason as that I filed some papers and scooped up the reminder with these papers and due to work completely forgot to renew. In all my 50 years of motoring I have never gone without insurance ,mot or tax. and have no convictions of any motoring offence.
The officer that took the initial details said that as well as the fine etc I could be offered an awareness course and It would be cheaper and I would not get any points.I was delt with 2 officers one was PC RYAN I think that this is the one that said the course was available .
The other officer was PC WEAVER No 70454 this happened at Stansted airport .
Jo I swear this the truth.
Thank you for your prompt reply do the wrong dates make a difference?
Thank you for your reply One thing that I am not sure on is the date on form that came to me in the post stated that the offence date was 2-5-2014
location Stansted airport that was a Friday and I was nowhere near Stansted on that day. I was there on the Saturday. Does this make a difference? also if I went to court do you have any idea what the cost would be and how long would it take to to go to court
Thank you for you advice.although I did not like the outcome.
The service was excllent.
I have just found out that The policy I took out in 2013 had an automatic renewal but because my wife paid for it on her credit card the underwriters took off the auto renewal and did not inform me.
Sainsburys said this was done because my wife although the same name and living at the same address for the past 47 years is counted as a third party person and therefore the auto renewal was taken off. The insurance was paid in full so therefore surley sainsburys is at fault, and i was right to assume that I was covered
Thank you for that ray of light.
Sorry I had to pop out.
Do I ignore the fixed penalty notice that came down in the post and wait for the CPS to contact me?
