Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
I presume the DVLA have the right address for you?
Have they always had?

They have six months from the date of the offence to lay an information before the Court. Obviously you will not know on what date they do that but the summons will be sent out a short time after that to the address that the DVLA have for you.

Can I clarify anything for you?
