Got a roadside fixed penalty this morning for overtaking normal huge queue of traffic going into my place of work town, done it a million times but this morning the nice man pulled me over and gave me the ticket and 'produce your licence' instruction.
I think I'm just going to pay up and eat the 3 points because my photo licence is 3 years out of date.
My questions are:
1. Should I have sent off my licence when I passed my Mod1 & Mod2 a year or so ago?
2. The Officer made an error when writing my address on the ticket, mis-spelled the street name ~ I read in the press often that appeals are often upheld on technicalities like this or am I just living in cloud cuckoo land?
If I elect to go to court rather than pay up the fine do I run the risk of copping a £1,000 fine for an out of date licence?
Bare in mind that I did my CBT, Mod 1 & Mod 2 with the same licence but the DoT didn't pick it up or raise any issue.
Can of worms?
