On what basis were you hoping to get them removed?
it is endoresable.
This is driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence. That carries points.
Restricted is a different issue.
That is not endorseable per se but the problem here is that it means you were driving without a licence so that is endorseable.
Sorry if that is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Not if you have a provisional and you were carrying a passenger. That is driving not in accordance with a licence which is endorseable.
Well, on the facts you present above you should be pleading guilty as you have no defence.
I agree with everything my colleague has said. Let me add something.
Unfortunately, they have 6 months from giving you the notice of intended prosecution, to issue proceedings and hence, even if this was problematical for them, they could change it as many times as you like. It may seem grossly unfair that they tell you one thing when the reality is different, but that’s the situation. Ignorance of the law is no defence and you were aware when you carried the passenger and you had a provisional licence, that would be an offenceor if you did not, you should have done..
It would not be an offence if the passenger had a full motorcycle licence.
So you committed an offence.
Having a passenger with a provisional licence is no use. It must be a full licence.
You admit that you committed the offence.
Even though you were told you wouldn’t get points, you will. There is no way around that. Sorry
