Do you mean you tried to accept a fixed penalty?
How many points do you have already?
Did you accept in 28 days of issue?
Yes, but was the licence sent in within 28 days?
And was that within 28 days?
Ok. That is probably the issue then.
Probably they revoked the offer because it wasn't accepted in 28 days. They are strict with time limits because they have to have the matter in court within 6 months.
It depends what you what to achieve here.
The reality is that it is too late to accept the fixed penalty now.
However, you might well be able to get rid of costs and the bailiffs fees.
If you didn't get a summons to court then you can ask the Magistrates to reopen the matter.
Sometimes they will.
Failing that you could make a statutory declaration to that effect if indeed you did not get the summons.
Probably it would be granted.
That would save a huge amount.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You will have been summonsed.
I would find out where the case was heard and go and ask them to reopen it first. Apart from anything else there is no cost and a stat dec does have some cost.
