It is not always necessary to attend Court and a letter of mitigation may be sufficient. Sometimes the Court will require you to attend as there is potential for a driving ban to be imposed. This does not mean one will be imposed but it is highly recommended that you have legal advice prior to the hearing or at Court to prepare and present your mitigation successfully. This could make the difference between being banned and retaining your licence.
Information must be laid before the Court within 6 months and following this a summons will be issued. The obligation is to lodge the information with the Court within 6 months but you can still receive summons after this period has expired.
