Hi - when was this offence meant to have occured?
Did you respond to the NIP naming the driver?
Are you asking if you have a defence?
Ok. So what is your question?
On your specific points
1 no. They won't transfer it. Matters are heard in the area of the location of the offence.
2 you are on the point of failing to provide. Come what may you did not provide. They have no case against you as they have no evidence that you were the driver.
You seem to have received the forms and responded effectively saying that you were not the driver which does not comply with the legislation.
2 yes, you can self represents. You will need to attend or you will need to enter pleas by post.
Can I clarify anything for you?
2 6 points and a fine in the middle hundreds. No, there is no mitigation in this. S172 reverses the burden of proof onto you to show that you could not with reasonable efforts identify the driver. The plain fact is that you didn't do that.
3 No. If you do that you will be convicted in absence as that is not a defence.
No. All that is doing is establishing that it wasn't you.
Due diligence would be trying to find out who was driving.
