Ok. I just attached my letter maybe will help you
Expert:  Marcinlondon replied 18 days ago.

I am sorry to hear about it and thank you for the letter. Unfortunately, it is entirely up to the discretion of your local police on whether or not to offer you a course. They usually do not offer these courses if one is well above the speed limits.

But if i make a contest do you think they will change the result
Expert:  Marcinlondon replied 18 days ago.

You would certainly incur a bigger fine and court costs, if found guilty.

Guilty i am. My problem is why they don’t send me for course because it’s my first time
Expert:  Marcinlondon replied 18 days ago.

I understand. Then there is nothing you can do. It is up to their discretion and because of your speed they did not make you this offer. I am sorry about it!

Ok. Thank you for your answers
