Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
So this has actually been to court on the 10th?
Thank you for the information.If you are saying you did not receive the summons then you do have the option to make a statutory declaration to the court to the effect you didn’t get it. If that is accepted then the conviction will be removed but you may be prosecuted again.You have to attend court to do that though. You might want to call in advance as some magistrates courts have specific dates upon which they will do that.If you are saying you didn’t get the S172 notice then you couldn’t name the driver so you do have a defence to that charge but you would have to argue it in court.If you are charged with speeding in default then you could offer to plead guilty to that ifindeed you were the driver.Do bear in mind that if you give false evidence on oath the consequences are way more serious than any of these substantive offences would be.Can I clarify anything for you?Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
