You mean for a summons?
Sorry for the delay. What was the speed and what was the limit ?
It is possible that they could give you a course. It would not be appropriate on the sentencing guidelines but they do act at variance with those sometimes when it suits them.
Otherwise though I'm afraid it would be within the highest sentencing bracket which would attract 6 points or a short ban. A ban is not going to happen so it would be points.
There would also be a fine, costs of £85 and the victim surcharge of roughly 10% of the fine.
Can I clarify anything for you?
They have to lay an information before the court within six months of the offence.
There isn't a victim. I suppose the only aggrieved party is the Crown with this type of offence.
Not if you were stopped at scene. The rules are they have to issue a postal NIP within 14 days or a verbal one at the scene.
They do forget to summons sometimes.
Also, sometimes they do use the entire six months and sometimes it is much quicker. It depends upon the area and how busy they are really.
No problem. All the best.
