    • There will be no issues with a course offer if the dates are as you say. The usual cut off is four months from the date of the offence. This is so as to give the driver the time to accept the offer and take the course before prosecution becomes "timed out" at six months.   However, if the NIPs really were the first to be issued and there are no issues with the address details then both have a cast iron defence to the speeding allegation. The first is dated 20 days after the alleged offence and the second 23 days after the alleged offence. The Road Traffic Offenders' Act makes it quite clear that if a NIP is not served within 14 days of the alleged offence then no prosecution can take place. But as I said, late first NIPs are very rare and both need to check all the details I have mentioned before they decline any out of court offers of a course or Fixed Penalty.    For information, courses are normally offered for speeds up to (Limit +10% + 9mph). Only one course of any type can be taken in three years (with the date of the offences being used to calculate that period) and courses are not offered in Scotland. However, if a driver is not offered a course for any reason when he would normally qualify (including late NIPs) he has no right of appeal to have one offered. If the matter goes to court the court has no power to order a course.
    • My grievance against my manager is on Wednesday at 12.00 noon. A union officer is representing me. The representative for my manager is a product manager. I was told today that she is the Daughter or a Step-Daughter of the manager. Is this a conflict of interest? Am I correct in saying that, because the manager is the subject, the hearing has to be carried out by a person higher than the manager such as a director? if so, the product manager is not entitled to carry out the hearing. I'm pretty certain that I read this in law books. My Brother is a licensed union chairman but has since left his previous employment.  He is certain that I am correct . Any help would be gratefully appreciated.   diecastdave
    • Ok cool many thanks!  Much appreciated...I will check everything out now and answer all those questions!
    • Sorry,  its regular outgoings of payments. It’s income related they’re on, not contribution based.  Mum and applicant were totally unaware of the rules in regards to deprivation of capital.   On income related ESA but claim housing benefit and council tax support.   He hasn’t came into a huge chunk of money. It’s been spent over a duration of four years. appointee’s livid, and worried that he’ll be homeless.  
    • Hi all           I spoke to the courts earlier today and they advised me that the points placed on my licence were removed in October 2019, and that a court date is set for November 26th. Guess what ??? I had not been given that info either. The courts were very helpful and explained to me that everything had been sent to my previous address (which I have not lived in or owned for 5 years) The car in question was registered in March 2016 and I have owned since new and has never been registered to my old address. I have proof of this down to the point of not taxing the car March 2017 as the car was zero tax I did not realise I still had to go online and tax it, the summons for that was sent to my current home address.  it is very strange that the police directed everything to my previous address. i then contacted the police on the number given by the courts and was told to forward proof I was out of country at time of offence for them to look at, the police officer was very understanding and quite helpful giving the information. I have to e mail her tomorrow and will give an update when I know more as this previous address thing is really confusing !!!

there are thousands of thread here that mention DR+, read some of them and you will see that the advice given in post#24 is not unique so why are you asking the question.

You cannot live in a bubble, you must learn from sources other than your own thread and then you will know what to ask and what we expect you to do in return. It will save a lot of time and effort and you will then hopefully gain some confidence so if the dodgy lawyers do send you a letter you will be looking forward to telling them what you think of them and their clients

Apologies - have not been able to carry out as extensive reading as I perhaps should have - wasn't fully aware of the distinction between the debt recovery letter and the letter I should expect at some point from their lawyers. I have a bit of free time this weekend (for the first time in a while!) so will have a look at some other posts.

 

Thanks for your help so far & apologies again for my current ignorance!

Hi there,

 

Couple of things

- it's been a fair while of having debt collection letters through every 4-6 weeks or so.

Have just had a letter (attached) through from Gladstones Solicitors which appears to essentially be the same as the debt recovery letters

(i.e. no actual court action as yet).

I presume I just need to sit on this until they actually take the case on?

 

Additionally I am looking to move house in the near future

- I'm aware I need to ensure that whoever is chasing me has my latest contact details so I don't get a CCJ against me without knowing

- how is best to go about this?

Do I just send whichever debt agency/solicitor firm a letter saying what my new address is and for all further information to be sent there?

 

Thanks in advance

 

(and apologies it's not a scanned image, I don't have (and can't really afford) a scanner at home)

"Dear Gladstones.

Any claim by your client is denied, and will be defended robustly if they decide to issue proceedings.

 

My address until is as current : , but from that date will be ."

 

Copy to DR Plus, and VCS Ltd (to cover all bases in case any of them wanted to go for a sneaky unopposed CCJ).

Minimum of proof of posting (free of charge) for each (and staple these to a copy of the letter, to keep for if they try a 'backdoor CCJ' (and / or recorded or special delivery if you are feeling flush!)

Agree but dont be polite to any of them,

 

let them all know that their demands are spurious and denied in their entirety and let VCS know that Gladdys are getting a reputaion in court that makes judges vent their spleen just for appearing on the paperwork and you will happily add to this reputation at their cost should they not see sense

Hi again,

 

Appears the address change was noted and they've decided to use a different firm?

 

Do I need to actually respond to this one?

 

Thanks in advance.

BWL are the parking worlds second favourite waste of money after Gladdys. They still cant be bothered to remind their client that the "initial £60 legal costs" arent legal so that tells you all you need to know about the honesty and integrity of these firms
