you mean to avoid the court summons?
What was the date of speeding?
Thanks for the information
He can always write to them making representations about the public interest of this prosecution. However, it would be unrealistic of me to suggest that is likely to work.
Come what may, he couldn't be given the fixed penalty or speed awareness course because he didn't send his licence in. They are going to be out of time in November to prosecute this so they will be concerned about getting a resolution one way or another. I have never known them revert to a fixed penalty when a summons has already been issued I'm afraid.
It is mitigation that he tried to accept the fixed penalty though.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
Yes, but he didn't send the licence in so they couldn't add points.
Yes, I understand.
That does not change the position.
Yes, but the £100 already paid will be either refunded or deducted from the fine.
No problem and all the best.
