    UKCPM will almost certainly sue you . They are a nasty company, but Definately beatable
  • Can this be won just simply on the fact that their letter didn't reach me on time . And that is their responsability to send it tracked somehow , and their duty to prove who the driver was?
    Will this be enough or should I raise other points?

    Given the above , what are my chances and what is the worst case scenario if it goes to court?

    Your chances are as good as the following:

    Their case : Your defence : The Judge on the day.

    Majority of people who are helped in preparing their case by the forum come out on top. But it needs the individual to take full responsibility for doing the heavy lifting.

    Worst case scenario - it will cost ~£175-£200 (includes the £100 PCN). They will try to add more (~£60-£80), but you would need to argue these with the Judge and get them removed.

    If you win, you can take them for £95 towards loss of earnings/annual leave for half a day + mileage @45ppm + parking costs for the day of the hearing.
    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask.
