I pleaded guilty by post minor driving offence. I filled out

Resolved Question:

Hi, I pleaded guilty by post for a minor driving offence. I filled out the necessary paperwork and submitted by (including my drivers license) over 3 months ago. Since then, I have heard nothing in reply and the case is due on Thursday 28th (next week).
Do I wait until after that date for a response from the court? Or should I have heard something by now? My concern is that I was under the impression that pleading guilty by post, would mean no need to attend any court trial. It's just now that I have heard nothing in reply and am thinking that I need to attend? Any advice here would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Martin Hill

Hello Martin my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

You just need to wait. Nothing will happen until court.

Even then it may take a few weeks for resulting to process the paperwork and send you the result.

Can I clairfy anything for you? Alex

Thanks Alex,
So no need to plan to go to court based on this then, right? Surprised that they have not acknowledged receipt of my paperwork/licence before now, is all.
I will take you advice and wait until I hear back fro the court in this case. I had assumed that by pleading guilty by post, they would not actually do any trial and just process through a more administrative penal process...Martin H

No need to go to court. The court won't acknowledge paperwork, there is simply too much of it.

Does that clairfy? Alex
