The law is the same throughout the UK on this point so I can help.
However, I will need more information.
Are you known to the officer?
1 If they intended sending out a S172 request then within 14 days. They would prosecute on the evidence of the officer but then he would need to recognise you.
2 Six month is the time limit.
3 Six months.
4 Six months.
5 They do but they are not recordable offences so would only show on your DVLA print out not your PNC.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Oh they could prosecute on that evidence.
It just depends whether he can identify you.
They need to have laid an iinformation within six months of the offence.
The summons can sometimes be slightly longer.
Usually the summonses received only a few weeks after the information is laid.
I'm happy to continue with this but please rate my answer.
No, the time limit is six months so usually it would be within seven at the most.
You are probably ok after 8 months.
