Hi - what is your question exactly please?
Come what may, you didn't send your licence in so points could not be added. Therefore you couldn't be given the fixed penalty.
Whatever the rights and wrongs of that, that is the position.
Therefore the only option was for them to go to court.
The fixed penalty is not a right anyway. It is just a means of diverting cases away from court.
Sorry but that is just not a ground of appeal
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, they could.
Obviously they would need to keep within the sentencing guidelines.
