If it came to it I suppose so, I am self employed and the court is a 4 hour round trip by car so I would be giving up a day's pay effectively
I was prepared for bad news that's fine.
If I cannot attend, or my plea is not received and I am found guilty in my absence ( I assume ) what is the likely hood that the fine will be increased or I will be pursued for not submitting a statement of means, or submitting licence for endorsement. Although I believe that driving without MOT does not carry an endorsement, just a fine..is that correct ?
A days wages for me could mean a loss of £300.00 or so I need to weigh up the overall cost.
I am sorry, I am still a little unsure.
If I attend and plead guilty there will be fine plus costs, plus my loss of earnings.
If I don't attend / plea, there will be a fine plus costs, but no loss of earnings.
Is there any disadvantage to the latter course ?
I don't wish to plead anything other than guilty
I see, thanks.
But presumably at some point, even if it is adjourned, there will be costs to pay anyway.?
£85.00 was mentioned in the paperwork
I understand now, thank you. The court paperwork and terminology is confusing at best.
Thank you for your time.
