On 31st January 2009 was stopped doing 98 mph on M5 by police with pro laser 3

was given stop and search form and told to expect court summons, which I received 2 days ago.

At time of alleged offence I had 6 penalty points. By time of court date (July) will be down to 3 as 3 points will be over 3years old.


Court date set for July - am out of country (ironically taking part in a rally to raise money for charrity)

Is it best bet to plead guilty by post and fill in plea form with mitigating circumstances (i think i have some)?

Also, think i am likely to get 5 -6 points. Could i be disqualified under totting up if i get 6 points as i had 6 points on licence at time of offence (even though will have only 3 current by time of hearing)?

What else?!? - Thanks

For totting purposes, the points to be taken in to consideration are those which were in effect at the time of the [alleged] offence.

It's always best to attend court suited and booted and show how contrite you are. This may (or may not) make them more lenient with sentencing.

If you get 6 points (which is possible), you would probably get a totting ban - which makes it more important you attend (if possible) if you want to try and avoid a ban.
