Speeding offence - surrender license?

Recommended Posts

Hi, my friend received a letter for speeding a few weeks ago and needs some advice. 

What is the best course of action to take right now?

Also the letter mentions to surrender the license, is this normal?

 

Thanks.

if he accepts the offence and pays at the portal directed too the £100 by day 28, and does NOT have more than 8 points already on his licence..he does NOT have to send in his licence.

 

see the yellow hi-lights I've made.

 

he need to do it NOW TODAY as the 28 days is up sunday.

Wrong.

In every Fixed Penalty case, the fulfillment of the requirement to avoid prosecution is conditional on the submission of the licence.


My time as a Police Officer and subsequently time working within the Motor Trade gives me certain insights into the problems that consumers may encounter.

I have no legal qualifications.

The above (about the requirement to surrender the licence) is correct.

But of course before saying what "the best course of action" now is, it would help a bit if we knew what the "letter" was.

 

Is it a Notice of Intended Prosecution?

A "Section 172" request for driver's details?

A conditional offer of a Fixed Penalty?

A single Justice Procedure Notice? Who was it from?

What does it say?

All we know is that it is a "letter for speeding a few weeks ago".

Yes, must open eyes. (It's being locked up. That's my excuse).  😪

 

Straightforward, then. The OP's mate must send £100 and his licence pronto.

 

The conditions are that he must have no more than eight currently active points on his licence (though normally the offer would not have been made if he had), pay the £100 and submit his licence by the due date.

 

Failure to do so will see him face court action (in the form of a Single Justice Procedure Notice) of which he will be notified, probably towards the end of August.

 

If he does so too late the £100 and his licence will be returned to him and the court action (as above) will follow.

 

I doubt at the moment that they will mind if it is a day or two late, but I wouldn't risk it nonetheless.

Interestingly (to me, but probably nobody else) I lived about half a mile from the location of the alleged offence for 24 years.
