    Speeding ticket/seminar

    Ok

    So i got caught speeding (36mph in a 30mph zone)
    This was 2 days after i passed my test (In June/July time)

    I got a letter through a few days later telling me i had been caught, and to reply to the letter, so i did

    A week later i recieved another letter, saying I have been given the choice to attend a speed seminar course, which i replied to saying that i would choose the speed seminar course over getting 3 points and a fine

    Now, at this point, my Dad also got caught speeding (81mph in a 70mph zone) and he recieved the same letter as me (the first letter)

    My dad then recieved a letter, similar to mine saying that he has been offered the speed seminar course instead of recieveing 3 points and a fine, and he accepted the speed course and returned the letter

    Ok, so 2 weeks ago my dad recieved a letter, with a given date for his speed seminar course, and i haven't recieved anything yet

    It seems strange that he got his ticket after mine, but yet recieved a date before me, I'm still waiting for a date for this speed seminar course


    Now..... i know your probably thinking "no news is good news" or "why are you bothered? jsut forget about it, they may of forgotten"

    But I'm a bit worried that my letter could have got lost in the post perhaps? Who would i consult to find out what is happening?
    I would sooner do the honest thing, and find out what is happening, rather than forget about it, and possibly get into more trouble

    Contact the police force who issued the penalty notice, they will be able to advise you or at least point you in the right direction.

    One in Exeter too.

    You pay a fee from £60-£100 but you get no points.
