that is a fair amount of time
have you spoke to the officer?>
when you say without a license do you mean you were not licensed to drive or you did not have the licence on you
I had lost my license for loss of points and had my license cancelled for 6 months. I have not spoken to the officer as i have not really wanted to draw attention to a matter that he may have let me off for. Is there not a period of time in which a charge and summons for driving without a license should be processed and sent out to me.

I am of course hoping now after this long period that i may have had some leniency shown and the charge may not have been entered. Are the courts that back logged with processing such mattters.
the officer should have lodged it
it may have been lost
I suggest you speak to the licencing authority and see whether they have information on whether you have had a further disqualification
the worst thing is that if they got your address incorrect and dealt with it in your absence
It is most unlikely it has been sent to the wrong address. Once the officer lodges the charge how long should the Magistrates court take to issue a summons.
you should be notified within weeks
at worst 1 month
the only option you have is to wait or contact the officer
once your 6 months is up you should go and see if you can get your license back
just do not drive until you get it back
if you later get something in the mail you attend court and deal with it them
Thanks maybe just maybe I've encountered an officer with some compassion. Fingers crossed. I will make payment now. Thanks again
good luck with it
but until the 6 months is over do not drive
the penalties are very severe
12 months minimum suspension
