I have a court date next week to fight a ticket for an expired sticker. The charge on the notice of trial says "DRIVE MOTOR VEHICLE, NO PERMIT"
Is this the right charge? Shouldn't it be something like "DRIVE MOTOR VEHICLE, NO CURRENTLY VALIDATED PERMIT"? I am trying to read up on the offence. Where can I find the specific charges and how they are defined.
I can't find the actual ticket to see what it says.
In your case, driving without a valid permit falls under section 7 of the HTA, as does driving with no permit.
And just in case you're wondering, an error on the trial notice, unlike the ticket itself, isn't a defence in Court.
It couldn't have been easier.
