Did you provide the details of the driver within 28 days?
No, but the reminder was certainly received?
In that case, you don't have a positive defence I'm afraid.
Come what may, the reminder at least was received at your address and you didn't respond. There is case law that says that a person away from home should keep tabs on their post and so the fact that you were away does not assist.
You could always ask the prosecution though to accept a plea to speeding alone. Quite often they will do that. It is rare that they pursue failing to identify if a plea to speeding is being offered.
Obviously you can only do that if you can identify the driver truthfully though.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Attending court and make that offer to the prosecutor in person.
Usually they will accept it.
All the best.
