You may for awhile but your registration will get suspended and when it runs out they won't renew it untill all the fines and late fees are payed. Its going to cost you a ton more in the long run as well as a bunch of aggravation.
Positive: 100 %

Of course not.. They have your new address. Come on, think about it. How long do you think it would take them to track you down, or to put a red flag on your car registration so that you get pulled over? If they have to do that, there will be more charges.

No, in this computerised age tracing someone is easier than you think.
Answer #4 | 02/01 2014 12:55
no, you still have the charge on your record, when you go to renew your licence or sumthing youll have to pay it

You under UK law are required to let DVLA and your insurers know if you move address. It was your responsibility to change the address, you didn't so think yourself lucky you are not being fined for that in addition to the speeding offence.

no I think its bad luck go to the old address and pay fine

You'll end up in court with a bigger fine and more points. Right now you could squeeze by with 3 points and £100. These will only go up.

No - the police have taken reasonable steps to inform you of the intended prosecution within 14 days of the offence, which is all they are required to do, so when they do catch up to you, and they will, you can still be prosecuted. They may try to prosecute you for not responding to the NIP within the required time and this carries 6 points and a bigger fine. In court you may or may not get out of this with proof of your address change but do you want to take that risk??? EDIT - it is nothing to do with the DVLA, they just provide the details to the Police and do not process anything to do with prosecutions

Head in the sand never works. Just deal with it. It will come to light eventually. The wheels at DVLA grind slowly, but they do grind.

No you'll just end up without the option of taking a speed awareness course and you will have to attend court
