Iam an hgv driver, my employers received a nip for speeding and iam the driver.
Iam on 9 points, not sure how they would react to a ban on my part. I fear for my job.
How can I best plead my case to not receive a ban ?
I have a SGO with my granddaughter, my wife had to give up work to look after her, Iam the only wage earner
Any advise would be welcome, Iam worried sick
Thankyou

The dreaded NIP arrived today . It states time and location of offence and of course my speed, but it states " speed limit on this road ...mph " no figures, just mph.
I was noted doing 36mph, presume the road in question is 30mph limit, foolishly my thinking it was 40mph
My question is can I contact the office sending the NIP and ask for the speed limit on the stretch of road, as they have omitted it ?
Any delay with this issue would be welcome as I already have 9 points

You can ask them for anything you like. However, they are not obliged to provide you with anything. Strictly speaking there is no obligation to serve an NIP on you at all so you ought to concentrate on the s 172 notice requiring you to name the driver. Miss that and it’s 6 points and a bigger fine than speeding.

Qualification for SAC depends on offence dates, otherwise everyone would try to delay proceedings to suit themselves.

Same applies to totting ban.

Other than delaying the commencement of any ban.

I think the main worry if I were in that position would be the statutory visit to the local Traffic Commissioner's Office for a Public Inquiry.

There is the double jeopardy for vocational drivers with PSV or HGV entitlement inasmuch as there is a legal obligation on you and your employer and his transport manager to report any notifiable offences to the TC's office.The TC has the power to revoke or suspend your vocational licence for as long as he thinks fit. If your employer fails to notify the TC office, he too could face a Public Inquiry as to why he has breached his operator's licence requirements.

That licence suspension or revocation is additional to whatever the magistrate's court may decide. Professional drivers are expected to drive to a higher standard than others. <says he who sometimes drives his car quite fast but never exceeds the limit when bus driving>.
