I did not get any notice or reminder and it is not somethig I would ignore if I had. I left my hone fo a period of timr due to divorce which I am still going through and flooding incident only jsyt moved back in in march.
The speeding charge is not included.
It was claimed so - that the police sent to my address. Me and my son were in a hotel fromtime to time and with relatives most weekends. I did not think I had to inform dvla. I don't even know detail of the charge. I have 4pionts on my licence.
Do you mean I must have been charged without me knwing and got 6 points making 10 points on my licence? Or that they will charge me with speeding? I am normally a slow driver and couldn't imagine when I did this, where and what the speed was. How csn I find out before court appearance on thursday? I have proof of flooding and insurance work which is still ongoing. We still have no cooking facility and only partially back home. Lost a lot of things in the flooding including soaked papers, letters and clothing and soft furnishings etc.
Also, do I need a solicitor to represent me at the hearing?
The appearance is in the magistrate court. The notice I I got says new date. I was not aware of the first one. I ws luck to get this one because we'd come home. Is that sentencing hearing then? The hardship would be be almost unthinkable if I am banned for any period of time. What can I do on thursday to avoid being banned? -it will cripple me straight away. What if I can't get a solicitor by thursday? Will I have. To get a barrister since you mentioned sentencing a possibility. I am really worried. Please advice on various scenarios you think might apply. I worry about the hardship extent and severity.
Apologies I have not come back I was following your instruction. I have obtained the dvla report and showed 10points on my licence. The record is inconsistent with the court record. It would appear that they charged me with both failure to provide information as well as speeding, tough I was advise to plead guilty to one and the other would be dropped. I pleaded guilty to speeding giving 4 points. The 6 point should not have been added. Should my first point be to find details of all these cases and see which is which? The confusion needs sorting out to avoid future issues and further mess. Please advise
I came back to you to thank you for your help. In court yesterday. The 6points were removed- gone now and my licence is ok.
I am thinking of applying for a provisional licence for my son who is now 16 so hew could start driving lessons. Given the recent experience I want to make sure that he would be able to drive to attent his regular medical appointments and school if I can't take him. Can I do this stating special circumstance?
Yes Thank you. i thought he has to be 18!
Sorry, I am a bit confused. If he applies for provional licence now, will he get it? And will he be able to take driving lesson with it?
He will have to drive a motor car during lessons to prepare for a driving test. So he can get a provisional driving licence for this purpose. Is this what you are saying?
Very clear & Many thanks indeed again.
Kindest Regards, Lola
