I moved around nov 2012, the offence occurred in jun 2013. The offence was speeding on an average speed check camera and they sent the notices to my old address. I had a lot going on in my life as my wife just had our first child and I failed to change the address on my log book. I did not receive anything from the police or the courts. I only found out about this when the court issued a warrant against me in dec 2013. I have since been to the courts and my warrant has been quashed and they set a new trial date for the offence of failing to identify the driver of the vehicle. I had not intentionally ignored the letters I just simply did not receive the notices. What will be the sensible plea for me? and is there any way I can plead not guilty and have a defence ?
yes I was the driver and they were saying I was speeding
no, i may well have been. but the trial is for failing to declare the driver
no im charged with failing to report the driver of the vechicle
