Hi thanks for that, I didnt realise I hadn't.
Yes, I would like to know if, in your opinion, my defence could be successful based in the facts I have presented.
Or if it would be wiser to plead guilty (if there are some factors I have not considered) using the above as some sort of mitigating circumstance perhaps.
No, I actually didn't think to until the fine came, because although it was such a long time the garage had the car. I was expecting it to be repaired and countless I was told "it will be ready friday/Monday" etc.
AAfter receiving the penalty notice I couldn't get access to the vehicle to get vin number, and as far as I know the log book must be in the car.
Once I got the notification with the reference number to use, I did. But that was 5th of feb
