Entering your Plea at Court online?

Following a successfully pilot in Manchester, the government is launching as service nationally which will allow motorists in England and Wales, who are charged with a summary motoring offence, to enter a plea online.
Drivers charged with minor motoring offences such as speeding or not having insurance wil be able to enter a plea via a secure website. This service will be operational on a 24 hour basis. Last year approximately 4.5 million minor motoring offences passed through the criminal courts.
The Government is also considering whether this service should be available for other low-level offences as it is envisaged to save the country both time and money.
