You can raise a defence at the hearing that another person was driving the vehicle.

You will require that other person to provide an affidavit in support of your defence.

Are you able to get that other person to arrange for an affidavit to be done ?

how can i arrange the affidavit?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
because all the fines are under my name.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
the person is not here at the moment
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

You will need to locate that person in order to have the affidavit done by them.

Would you like to talk about this important matter by telephone. I have extended a special offer to support if you prefer ?

is there is any other option?
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

You can provide an affidavit confirming the details of the other driver. But if they dispute that claim saying there were not driving, you will remain liable, unless there is other evidence to the contrary.

where i can get affidavit from?
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

The affidavit can either be prepared by a lawyer preferably, or a sample can be downloaded from the Magistrates Court website.
