Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
If it is just a parking offence then that doesn't carry points so he shouldn't need to look into who was driving.
If he does though it would be quite easy to find out the status of your licence. The fact he didn't see you driving is a disadvantage but it doesn't necessarily mean this couldn't be pursued. There is also the issue that officers have been known to claim to have seen this that could not have been seen on occasions.
It is quite unlikely that it would come to that but it is possible.
Can I clarify anything for you?

could my haband just say he was driving

Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
No, because that would be untrue and that is perverting the course of justice I'm afraid. People go to prison for perverting the course of justice on first offences.
