Yes - I was convicted recently in my absence of a driving offence.
I intended to challenge the offence however the court had re listed the event without giving me the opportunity of dates to avoid - I explained this to them on Three occasions.
The email address they gave me did not work and they admitted they had some trouble with it..
I phoned them on the day of the trail and still they went ahead and convicted.
I now want to challenge the "listing" so that if re-convicted I would still have the right of appeal?
is there an expiry of how long I have?
Out of interest and I appreciate its not probably been done - is there anything stopping Suing the court itself (listing department) for damages?
