Because I moved house, that's why I contacted them to update my address.
I can't remember exactly but I would guess it was approximately 12 months. The reason I left it so long was that I had four family bereavements during this time, including both of my parents.
Well I don't remember the actual incident but the police have sent me the photograph taken from the speed camera so I guess I must have been yes!
I never received any correspondence about it at all so I was completely unaware of the offence. The summons is for the speeding, plus the fact that I didn't provide any driver details, obviously because I never received the S172 form. I understood that was the reason for me having to sign the statutory declaration over a year ago.
Well as I said I don't actually remember the incident but I don't lend my car out to anyone so it must have been me driving, yes.
Thanks. So given my circumstances, would it be better for me to plead not guilty to both charges, rather than guilty to the speeding but not guilty to failure to provide driver information?
No, I thought I did mention earlier that the summons is for 2 things, speeding plus not providing driver details (which was because I never received the form)
Yes, the stat dec states that I did not find out about the case until 29th December 2011, as there had been a court hearing about it on 30th August 2011. The speeding incident happened on 2nd December 2010. It also states that I only found out about it after contacting the DVLA, who then informed me that I had been disqualified from driving after receiving 6 penalty points for an offence I was not aware of.
