Did they charge you with failing to identify?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
NO
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
no
Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 months ago.

The sentence would suggest this was a failing to identify.

You do not usually get 6 points for speeding.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 months ago.

This answer will only be right if you give me full and complete information.

hi joi identified the person who was driving and i send to them his licence his address his D.O.B and i still got 6 points?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 months ago.

Yes, I understand.

What I need to know is what was the offence with which they charged you?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
they charged me for giving a car to someone before i checked if he had insurance and speeding ticket which i was not driving the car the person i gave the car to was driving
Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 months ago.

Ok. So the charge is permitting no insurance.

Did you check his insurance details?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
i have not
Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 months ago.

Ok. So what would your defence be?

Did you produce his insurance details?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I do not have his insurance details
Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 months ago.

Ok. I'm sorry if I am missing the point but you do not seem to be raising a defence.

Come what may, you allowed him to use your vehicle and cannot prove that he was insured. There is a reverse burden of proof on you to do so and it has not been discharged.

On the face of it, this is a proper conviction for that reason.

The speeding can always be appealed if that did lead to a conviction although probably it did not because they got the conviction for permitting no insurance.

Sorry but I can only give you truthful information.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Jo
