I found out on 12/09/2018 that I've been "convicted" of an MS90 and hit with 6 points on my licence and £660 fine.

The date of the offence was 24/12/2017, and the conviction was on 24/07/2018,

I moved address on 17/08/2017 but forgot to update my address on my licence or V5C,

 

I've phoned the magistrates court which issued the fine(Lincolnshire) and they've advised me to contact my nearest magistrates court (Norwich) to make a statutory declaration, when I did,

 

I was given a date (4th of OCT) to appear in court and make my statutory declaration and I was asked on the phone how do I plead to the S172 (which I replied NG) and the original speeding offence (to which I said I'm not sure I'll think about it)

 

my query is when I go court will I asked to enter a plea?

and I am how do I plead?

and Will I have to go to Lincolnshire court if I have to go to trial?

 

I spoke with a solicitor and he seemed to think that I won't be asked to enter a plea because it's not the original court.

Hi

 

Others will be along that know more about doing an SD.

 

One issue I can see is you mention that during the time you changed address its your responsibility to inform DVLA of your change of address with your Driving Licence & V5 and in not doing so could open you up to the possibility of a fine from DVLA.

Did you have any prior notifications about this matter before you moved address?

 

When did you notify DVLA of your Change of Addesss?

 

Please be patient as it can be quiet at the weekend but I am sure others will be along to advise.

I moved in August 2017 and the speeding offence was on December 2017 so any letters of intended prosecution and summons went to my old address, and like an idiot I forgot to update my address on the V5C when I moved, the car is now written off because of the accident.

I presume you did not have a 3 month Mail Redirect service in place when you moved house.

What have you been charged with to date?

You've done all this on another forum, I think.

 

In case you've forgotten:

 

my query is when I go court will I asked to enter a plea?

 

Maybe. But possibly not.

 

and I am how do I plead?

 

Not guilty to both charges (Speeding and Failing to provide details) unless and until you get a guarantee that the FtF charge will be dropped

 

and Will I have to go to Lincolnshire court if I have to go to trial?

 

Probably. You'll have to wait until you've done your SD.
