Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

How long have you been in the UK?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
for one and half year
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 1 year ago.

ok. The law says you must change it after one year. As such you will be sent to court.

You will face a fine, but the level depends on how much you earn, court costs and at least 3 points.

The maximum penalty is £1000 fine and disqualification.

Can I clarify anytigjg for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
do i have to appear in court or I have to send the fine only. as i am a self contracted driver so what income proof they will want.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 1 year ago.

You may not need to go to Court.

They will want you to fill out a means form. But it is an offence for you to lie on it

Doe that clarify?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ya i will declare my honest income, and how long it will take for court to send me a letter. As i have send the acceptance of offense a week before.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 1 year ago.

The Court will let you know the outcome after the hearing.

Does that clarify?
