What is the SP on a driving disqualification - for speeding not boozing/dangerous etc. As far as I can work out my friend does not have to notify their chain of command about a potential court appearance, until they decide to defer judgement if considering a ban. Is this right?? So if my friend gets off with a fine and points then no-one's the wiser. If they get a ban, they then have to tell the chain. What can/will the chain then do to this officer? Any info gratefully received.
