There is an issue here that needs to be made clear.
That is, does a SD presented out of time automatically and immediately render the previous conviction void.
I sayno, it doesn't, because, as per section 14 it must be examined before it is passed to the court officer.
However if the application is sent within 21 days of the hearing, it may be passed because common sense tells us it must be within the period.
I have no idea what others may be discussing, but his is what I am interested in.
Thanks for your advice and best wishes everyone. I had my statutory declaration hearing today and as you all thought ...Reset to the original speeding charge to which I pleaded guilty and dropped the failure to serve charge. Result - £130 fine inc surcharge and 3 points. Thank goodness! Appreciate everyone who took the time to comment some of you so comprehensively. Jen
