Why didn't you act in time?
Ok. On what basis would you appeal this?
Sorry for the delay.
The fundamental problem here is this. People do not have a right to demand the fixed penalty. It is bad luck that you could not accept because you could not submit your licence in both parts but it is not a legal challenge. Come what may, you didn't submit your licence so they couldn't add points. Therefore the fixed penalty could not be accepted. It might not have been your fault but it is the legal position.
Therefore there is no basis for appeal.
In any event though, you are out of time to appeal. There is an automatic right to appeal within 28 days of sentence. They will sometimes allow a belated appeal if there are good grounds but that doesn't apply here.
I'm very sorry but that is your position I'm afraid.
Can I clarify anything for you?
All the best
