Hi - what is your question exactly please?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Is there a possible way to appeal the single justice procedure notice for speeding as I did pay the fine, just did not send in the license?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
they also did not return my fine payment to me to say that it had been rejected due to me not sending in my license
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 month ago.

No.

Come what may, you didn't send your licence in so points could not be added. Therefore you couldn't be given the fixed penalty.

Whatever the rights and wrongs of that, that is the position.

Therefore the only option was for them to go to court.

The fixed penalty is not a right anyway. It is just a means of diverting cases away from court.

Sorry but that is just not a ground of appeal

Can I clarify anything for you?

they can change my penalty points?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 month ago.

Yes, they could.

Obviously they would need to keep within the sentencing guidelines.
