Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

It sounds like you have been convicted in your absence.

As such you need to make a statutory declaration.

This is where you swear before a Judge that you did not know of the proceedings.

The process will then start again. This should resolve it for you.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

If not might I invite you to leave me a positive rating before you go, this ensures the site credits me for the time spent answering your question.

If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.

Hi Jo C.I hope you are well.I had a court date for a drink driving offence which happened in May. It has been adjourned 4 times due to impacts of Covid-19. I have not received a letter since it was last adjourned to august.
I found out the court date was on the 10th September but I did notreceive a letter, hence my call to find out when it will be.I didn’t ask what to do over the phone as I wanted to seek advice on what to do. I was prepared to attend and plea guilty but with some mitigating factors.Can you advise of the best course of action to take now to get this re arranged to it doesn’t appear in crown court.Yes I spoke with them today and the date was 10th sept 2020. The last 3 dates were on the 17th. I had thought I would of received a letter stating prior but double checked today before tomorrow encase the date remained the 17th as the court has now re opened

How do I make a statutory declaration
Customer: replied 2 day ago.
I need to call the court directly to arrange this or online via an online uk.gov website ?

You need you to call the court.

They will set it down for hearing for you.

Does that help?
