    Default Failure to provide

    Hello all.

    I'm a first time offender and in my blind panic I refused yo supply as I wanted a lawyer. It was explained I would be charged with FTP but I was stupidly under the impression that when the lawyer arrived I could blow then. I shall be pleading guilty as I know I have dine wrong.

    I fully complied with the police otherwise and there wasn't aany aggrevation. I wanted to know if the police have to outline every charge on the charge sheet? The reason I askis I had driven about a mile before being pulled but it is a blank. If I had damaged something ( albeit no damage to my car) would the police have to make me aware? As I say there was nothing on the charge sheet and at no point was I interviewed.

    I'm terrified of getting a custodial sentence, I rely on my car and I recognise a ban as a minimum but now my mind is going in over drive and I'm questioning everything.

    The circumstances of your driving will be explained to the court, such as swerving,failing to give way or anything else that you did, and the magistrates will take this into account when deciding the length of your ban. In theory you can have an extra charge added at court if, for example, you had been involved in a collision but as the police knew the facts at the time, they clearly felt that just the drink driving charge was sufficient and it is unlikely that you will face a further charge.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to respond, this eases my mind massively. As I say I do remember being picked up and from that point on but the thought of damaging someone property or worse someone worried me.
