There, On 12/07/2015 my father was involved in road collision

Resolved Question:

Hi there,
On 12/07/2015 my father was involved in road collision at which he was not a fault. He was driving a Lincoln Aviator that was fully serviced, had MOT and was insured on it a second driver. Therefore is not the policy holder. He is not a UK national. He was driving on his Ugandan driver licence.
However on 02/10/2015 we received a summon with the outlined offence below:
On 12/07/2015 at ***** ***** Drove a motor vehicle, namely Lincoln Aviator on a road, namely A12 J/W Gooshays Drive otherwise than in accordance with a licence authorising you to drive a motor vehicle of that class.
Contrary to section 87(1) of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and Schedule 2 to the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1998
I was just wonder, what does this all mean?

How long has he been in the uk for?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

He had just flown in on Friday 10th July. So was only in the country for three days.

Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
It means that they don't think he had a licence, or he had one but it didn't cover him for that type of vehicle.
That is what it means,
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
