Hi welcome to Just Answer.
Is there any reason that he said you would receive a summons? Did he mention fixed penalty?
I think he said he could not issue points as I was driving at 51 mph in a 30mph zone. No mention of points
Okay. And you're worried about being disqualified?
Yes very as I depend on my licence to work. I currently drive 250 miles a day 3 days a week (750 total) and work from home 2 days a week on average. If I have no licence I will not be able to work.
Okay. I don't think you need to worry about a ban. This is a first offence in 20 years, and you were speeding perhaps a little more than average, but I would imagine you're in for a fine and 6 points at the most.
I don't think you need worry about disqualification.
Ok thank you for this. I'm a little worried now as I don't know what happens do I need to hire a solicitor? as I'm reading things like "tick a box for guilty and send a letter?" could you advise please.
No, you don't need to hire a solicitor.
Wait for something to come from the police. If you get a summons to attend Court, then you could use a lawyer if you wanted to, but I don't think there is a real risk of you actually being disqualified.
If I get a summons to court, what would in your professional opinion benefit more - Attend court in person? , or submit via post?
Hello any advice on my last post?
Always good to appear in person, apologise and regret it etc.
Creates a better impression in my view.
Ok thank you Max its much appreciated.
Thank you - please rate my answer as highly as you can for me.
