So as long as you do not come back here by car , no problem.

I am a doctor and need my car for work in England. Do you think that if I make letter of appeal will the police will consider lifting the one month ban?

Dear Customer,

I would write to them , tell them that you are a British resindet and a doctor and need your driving licence.

Add some paperwork to back it up.

Offer them to pay a higher fine instead of the ban

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will. My only worry then they will ask me to appear in court in Germany!

You do npt need to as you are a British Citizen and nop German resident
