Hello, I was driving on a valid international licence but had recently got my provisional Uk driving licence as well when the police stopped me and said that I was driving Illegally and seized me car. They are saying that I will get a court summon soon with penalties points and fine even though it has been mentioned in the DVLA manual that I am allowed to drive for one year. What do I do now?
Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me where this is?
Customer: Bangor, north wales
Assistant: Do you need to appear in court?
Customer: I want to clear my offences
Assistant: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I haven’t received the summon yet but want to know if I really committed a crime?

Hello, I am waiting for the answer please

Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

Do you have a full foreign licence?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I have an international driving permit

Ok. Do you have a full licence?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Yes

Ok then you can plead not guilty.

If you can show you have a full licence then you are not guilty.

So you can plead that.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

If not I would appreciate a 5 star rating for my answer, the button should be at the top of the screen. If you need more help, you can ask follow up questions for free and I would be delighted to assist. Thanks!
