Yes, absolutely, and the car was taxed. Everything was in order
The 'charges' page mentions only the speeding offence and quotes offence was contrary to section 81(1) of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984 and Schedule 2 to the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988.
The page relating to the charge of 'using a vehicle without the necessary documents( a driving licence, a test certificate or insurance) does not stipulate any act.
The speeding offence details on page 2 are correct but none of the charge details on page 9 are. The offence I've been charged with on page 9 is not included on page 2 with the speeding charge.
Thanks for your answer but just to clarify I was NOT banned last time as my mitigation was accepted on that occasion, so I couldn't have been charged with driving while disqualified.
Am I to understand that there is no significance to the incorrect charge of driving without documents on the substance of the case as a whole, including the speeding offences?
I do have a court date later this month and will attend but the plea form ONLY mentions the speeding offence and there is no reference there to driving without documents offence on that form and therefore no opportunity to plead on that charge one way or another.
I guess I was hoping that the 'clerical error' of the additional charge might render the whole case invalid. I take it this isn't the case then?
