Failure to update driving licence photocard prosecutions

The request was successful.

Dear Crown Prosecution Service,

How many summonses have been issued for offences under the Road Traffic Act (s99), where individuals have failed to renew the photocard part of their driving licence?

How many of these summonses proceeded to a final hearing?

How many convictions have there been?

How many people were fined the maximum £1,000?

Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,

Sarah Graber

Dear Freedom of Information Unit,

Thank you for your response. Is it therefore correct to say that the CPS has not prosecuted any persons for failure to update the photocard part of their driving licence?

Yours sincerely,

Dear Ms Graber

 

We do have five offences recorded under this Act/Section on our database
between 2011 and 2012.  Please note the caveats below that relate to the
data.

The five cases have now been destroyed in line with our records retention
criteria, one year after the conclusion of proceedings.  We therefore hold
no convictions or sentencing information.

 

I hope this assists.

 

Regards

Caveats to data supplied

 

1.  Offences recorded in the MIS Offences Universe are those which reached
a hearing.  There is no indication of final outcome or if the charged
offence was the substantive charge at
finalisation.                                                                                    

2.  Data relates to the number of offences recorded in magistrates'
courts, in which a prosecution commenced, as recorded on the
CMS.                                                                                      

3.  Offences data are not held by defendant or
outcome.                                                                                            

4.  Offences recorded in the Offences Universe of the MIS are those which
were charged at any time and reached at least one hearing.  This offence
will remain recorded whether or not that offence was proceeded with and
there is no indication of final outcome or if the offence charged was the
substantive offence at
finalisation.
