I'm not sure what you are hoping to achieve?
The reality is that whether they are right or not, you are summonsed to court.
If you are summonsed then your only options are to plead guilty or not.
Im not sure whether you are saying there is an outstanding prosecution or that you have been convicted in absence?
You are summonsed.
The fixed penalty has fallen away now. They will no interest in that.
It is difficult to tell why the fixed penalty was not used. There could be lots of reasons.
But the plain fact remains that it was not.
if it was an error of the crown's then you could mitigate on that basis but it doesn't change the fact that you are summonsed.
No, as I have said, you are summonsed.
They will have no interest in the fixed penalty or it's failure.
But the fixed penalty has fallen away now.
You are summonsed to court. They will have no interest in what happened with the fixed penalty. The fixed penalty is not a context. It was an offer made which now has no relevance.
It will still only be 3 points.
The level of the fine depends.
If they are satisfied that the fixed penalty would have been appropriate then there are Benches that will just give you a fine of £85 and the surcharge of £15 but that cant be guaranteed.
If you are unlucky it could amount to a couple of hundred when costs are added.
When did you pass your test?
no, you won't be revoked. You are not a new driver.
Oh yes, this type of offence doesn't really justify the cost of a solicitor. You will be find if you represent yourself. Defendants usually do.
All the best.
