Yes that letter was issued on a basis of record kept by Secretary of State that I was registered keeper of that vehicle but it was not insured.The reason why was not insured was that it was broken and I was struggling to repair the car as the no one could address the problem so I was not sure when the car will be drive-able again. So I did not declare SORN and did not have insurance in place.At that time car never was driven and moved only on a trailer on recovery truck.
Please I want to know what I am facing pleading not guilty in a court and what it takes to prove my innocence.
Last thing which is really important to me. Does pleading guilty will result in a criminal record?
Will giving any mittigating circumstances affect the amount of all cost all together?
When this criminal record will be cleared from my files?
Would you advise going to the court and be present at court case?
