What is the situation with 2 ongoing notices as this does not seem to be a deterant where I can go from a clean to 6 point licence in one go?

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Ok.

Sorry if I am missing the point then but what would be your challenge to this?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am concerned that I have had no chance for the points to be a detterrant as will go from no points to 6 in pone go. I was also hoping to have a speed awareness course to avoid 3 points.

I have effectively not had the chance of the speed awareness course to have an effect on my driving.

R u there?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

No, but that isn't a defence.

If there are two offences then there are two offfences.

They may offer the speed awareness for one or they may not because of the pending prosecution of the other.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

It depends really upon their view of the situation.

I suppose you could judicially review any decision that was adverse but that would cost several thousand pounds.

The purpose of sentencing is not to deter though. It is to punish, protect society and rehabilitate. The emphasis these days is really on the first two.

In your experience does it happen that a speed awareness course is offered when you have a pending other one?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have had many years of a clean license
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

No, not usually.

It depends whether they are aware of the other matter.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Surely you have to declare
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

No.

I'm not sure why you would have to?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
one offence is in england other is wales?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, so?

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Are we at cross purposes?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I know I have a free 7 days, but if we swap to phone is it just £38 \nd no more if I only choose to keep the week?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Jo, just wonder if you have seen previous comment about phone.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

I am never involved in the billing. You would need to email customer services about that.

I do think there is a separate charge for phone calls.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't have to tell them, however do I not have to send in my licence, and if so what happens if I have sent it in to the first one?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Then you just tell them it is with the DVLA.

You can't lie obviously but you can say nothing. If you cannot submit your licence because of overlap then probably they will find out.
