Hi.

First of all, I am full aware it's my own doing and even though the last offence was a genuine error on my part, it is still my own fault

The last offence took place on the 12/10/17. The road is a duel lane i.e. 2 lanes going the same direction (and 2 the other) through a town and I assumed wrongly that it was a 40 limit when it was in-fact a 30.

A policeman with a radar caught me doing 35 and so received a FPN a few days later.

I send the form back and this morning received the below:

"A further endorsement of 3 penalty points makes you liable for disqualification through the 'totting up' process. This can no longer be dealt with at the fixed penalty stage and xxxxxx Police will contact you in due course"

I checked earlier on the DVLA site and this is showing the below:


SP30
Penalty points: 3
Offence date: 25 Feb 2017

SP30
Penalty points: 3
Offence date: 2 May 2016

SP30
Penalty points: 3
Offence date: 18 Oct 2014
Expired

This shows that at the time, I had 9 points but the 3 on the 18th October came off just 6 days after the date of offence.

I'm really asking if anyone has any advice regarding my court appearance. I wish to accept fault but would like to know what I can possibly do to reduce any ban. Should I get legal representation?

The DVLA site is now showing I only have 6 points, so I guess the 3 expired came off and any for this latest offence are yet to be added?

Maybe a sign would help.

Almost certainly!

I guess it's not worth going in person then as it's going to be a waste of my time. I have no case for Exceptional Hardship apart from having to take orders to the Sorting Office but I'm sure they'd just tell me to get a Taxi. Thanks for your help all.


As you have no case for it, then there is no point in trying for exceptional hardship. They will ask you to attend court anyway, to ensure you know you have been disqualified and understand the consequences.

Everyone is overtaking me on that stretch of road when I'm doing 30.


You never know, some of them might get zapped as well.

Every time I have ever driven from here up to the 50 signs, every single car has overtaken me well over 30 with one exception (which is memorable enough that I actually remember it), doesn't change the fact that the police could prosecute everyone who's doing 35 or more.
