    • Does he admit he was the driver, and agree that he was doing that speed (or close?). Was the NIP combined with a S.172 request to identify the driver, and if so, has he returnrd the form identifying the driver?. This would still need to be done (if he doesn't they may run out of time to prosecute for the speeding, but a S172 prosecution will only lead to a worse outcome, not only in terms of fine and licence revocation but also an even worse effect on insurance premiums in the future).   If the speeding has no defence: Band C fine, and disqualification (7-56 days) or six points, on first glance of the Magistrates Courts Sentencing guidelines https://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk/offences/magistrates-court/item/speeding-revised-2017/   However, for "driving grossly in excess of the speed limit the court should consider a disqualification in excess of 56 days", even before:   https://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk/explanatory-material/magistrates-court/item/road-traffic-offences-disqualification/8-new-drivers/   "Drivers who incur six points or more during the two-year probationary period after passing the driving test will have their licence revoked automatically by the Secretary of State; they will be able to drive only after application for a provisional licence pending the passing of a further test (Road Traffic (New Drivers) Act 1995). An offender liable for an endorsement which will cause the licence to be revoked under the new drivers’ provisions may ask the court to disqualify rather than impose points. This will avoid the requirement to take a further test. Generally, this would be inappropriate since it would circumvent the clear intention of Parliament."   So, the likely outcome is a band C fine, 6 points and thus automatic revocation of his licence. That is provided they are just prosecuting for the speed (and not considering careless or dangerous driving........)
    • I think I read the other day that sadly some people have caught Covid in hospital.   Also that people have gone in for non-virus reasons and when tested have turned out to be asymptomatic but positive.   I don't know where they're counted.
    • not a lot he can do sadly esp as <12mts new licence holder?     Speed Enforcement Guidance.pdf
    • Apparently around 23% of those in hospital 'with' Covid are not there 'for' Covid but for other reasons.  I'd like to think this is one reason why the numbers of hospitalised cases among the vaccinated can seem high.  Does strike me as a ridiculous way of reporting the figures when they're trying to overcome vaccine hesitancy.  Feeds anti vaxxers arguments.

Hello peeps. Wondered if someone might be able to answer my simple question? I have followed the procedure of letters up to the point where i started MCOL last week. The date of Issue was the 31/5/07. Does the 14 days that NatWest has to reply include weekends or is it deemed as "working days" only? i.e. is the 14 days up on the 20/6 or 14/6? Thanks!

Hi all, advice please. Just received offer for full amount minus interest from Natwest. Letter was dated one day before I started MCOL, yet it turned up today, 8 days in the post??????

As i have started MCOL but they havn't acknowledged yet, should I stick it out and hope i get a settlement plus the interest, or accept their offer?

Entirely up to you whichever way you want to play it. You've paid the MCOL fee now which Natwest are unlikely to pay back, you could try ringing them and asking if they'll up the offer to include it, but its unlikely I would have thought. And you certainly won't get the 8% wihtout going to court.

Depends if you want to go all the way or not and get the fees plus the 8% when you get a settlement. Its your call, only you can decide, but whatever you decide, we're all right behind you.

Deal or no deal the decision is yours. Is the interest alot ? and are you in need of the settlement urgently. If you are not in need of the money urgently then carry on. Its your money taken unlawfully from your account and you have a legal right to claim it back. Good luck.

Bank - NATWEST

CLAIMED - £5489.99

SETTLED - £5489.99

 

Took about 3 months from start to finish and got the the stage where COBBETTS defended my money claim online submission.

 

Then out of the blue 7 days later, got the letter offering my full amount minus interest.

Please note, this was purely as a goodwill gesture and in no way an admission of liability! YEAH RIGHT NATWEST!!!!

 

 

Stick at it, it can be done!
