    • 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

    • 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 !!!

Continuous insurance requirement : so if not SORN’d needs insurance even if off the road.

you’ve complied with that, fortunately.

 

Tax and MOT : no requirement provided the vehicle isn’t on a public road (which can include a car park to which the public have access!).

Again, you are fine as was off-road.

 

So relax, you’ve gone the right thing (keeping it insured until SORN’d), and I agree : as SORN’d you can now cancel the insurance!

Surely that's not correct, tax (VED) is due whether the car is on the road or not, unless declared SORN.  That's been the case for quite a few years well before continuous insurance requirements came into force.

Yes, 'On a public road' was removed from s.29, Vehicles Excise & Registration Act 1994 by Sch. 45, Finance Act 2008, now it is 'If a person uses, or keeps, a vehicle which is unlicensed he is guilty of an offence', there are exemptions, one is if the vehicle is subject of a SORN and not used or kept on a public road.
