Hi Dodgeball, not heard anything yet either, I put the claim in 7th Oct and got a reference number. They said 60 days which I’m assuming by the 6th Dec we should be settled. I did read an article somewhere that the CAA will be updating people sometime this week.
I will let you all know how I get on when I do a Stat Dec on wednesday morning.
I am hopeful that they will accept that I knew nothing of the earlier proceedings and original request for driver details - as this is the truth and should I need evidence I have got that.
My hope is that I will be asked to plead for the speeding offence and I will agree to plead guilty if the failure to provide details of driver offence is dropped.
However if this doesn’t happen, will I still have to answer to the charge of non disclosure of driver details?
If I do have to answer to this charge I would plead not guilty -as I haven’t received the correspondence.
I just wonder what are the chances of the Magistrates deciding this requires a trial and accepting that I tried to update my new address details? Or is this very unlikely to occur?
I obviously don’t want another 6 points and a fine of £1k as I’d be worse off than if I’d paid the bailiffs!
Can anyone shed any light on how likely I am to be charged with the offence of not updating my records or would this be something the DVLA would have to start?
I have since updated online so I think they are unlikely to initiate proceedings.
Don't touch them owe me £500 since January 2019 make excuse after excuse. Seem they always have software problems sending money out. Keep saying they will call back or email nothing been chasing it now for 6 mths the phone staff always have the same banter we will chase it up and get back to you then nothing!
