I was stopped tonight for speeding (honest misbeleif of speed for area on my behalf, beleived it to be a 60 when it was a 30...was doing 49mph) and the officer told me i could not be issued with an on the spot fine but would receive some notice from the procurator fiscal.
My queries are quite simple:
a) If i was being charged for driving with no insurance, would the officer have informed me when i was pulled over?
b) As it was my dads car would it come up if i was insured to drive it or would they just check to make sure its insured?
c) When responding to the notice from the procurator fiscal, what documents do i need to proved to accept the points and fine?
Reason i ask is after reading my policy which i belived to cover me for driving it, i am know uncertain wether i am. I ask what the offence was and he said speeding but i am sure i heard the other officer say i was not insured for the car after openly informing them i was not the owner of the vehicle.
Would they have allowed me to drive the car home if this was the case then?
Also will the notice get sent to me or the owner of the car?
Sorry for the questions but this is quite a new/scary experience.
