Hey

I really need some help i just got a letter today saying i was caught speeding doing 51 in a 30 zone.
i've had a quick look on the net and from what i can tell i'm going to lose my provisional licence
as it a instead 6 points
Disqualification for 7-56 days
and a Normal fine range £98 - £163
Maximum fine £1000

what i would like to know is if the is any way of keeping my licence as i need it to get to work every day
at the time of the officiant i was runing late for work and though got about the camera device
or have i lost my licence unsure.gif

If you have a provisional licence and you currently have fewer than six points then you will not be disqualified. If you have a provisional licence you're not subject to the new driver legislation until you pass your test.

Why was your supervising driver not advising you about your speed?
Shadowrider87
I was not with a supervising driver as on 125cc bike

thanks southpaw for the advice also if i get banned for 2months does that mean my insurance becomes invalid and my theory test
southpaw82
If you were banned for two months then I doubt your insurance would cover you to ride (which would be illegal anyway). It shouldn't affect your theory test.

thanks again southpaw so i will have to let my Insurance company now when i find the out come
Shadowrider87
well i feel a little easy about all this now just hope i get off ligthly as it my first time and i have a clean provisional licence

NIP Wizard Responses
These were the responses used by the Wizard to arrive at its recommendation:
Have you received a NIP? - Yes
Are you the Registered Keeper of the vehicle concerned (is your name and address on the V5/V5C)? - Yes
Did the first NIP arrive within 14 days? - Unsure
Although you are the Registered Keeper, were you also the keeper of the vehicle concerned (the person normally responsible for it) at the time of the alleged offence? - Yes
Were you driving? - Yes
Which country did the alleged offence take place in? - Wales

NIP Wizard Recommendation
Based on these responses the Wizard suggested that this course of action should be considered:
  • The law requires you to provide the information requested in the Section 172 notice within the 28 day period, naming yourself as the driver. If you are considering obtaining formal legal advice, do so before returning the notice.

    You should note that there is nothing to be gained by responding any earlier than you have to at any stage of the process. You are likely to receive a Conditional Offer of a Fixed Penalty (COFP) and further reminder(s). If you want to continue the fight, you should ignore all correspondence from the police until you receive a summons. You need to understand from the outset that while you will receive much help and support from members on the forums, you will need to put time and effort into fighting your case and ultimately be prepared to stand up in court to defend yourself.
