Notice of Intended Prosecution
If you have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) and are unsure what to do next, we can advise you about your options and whether you have a defence – contact us today on 0115 910 6239. We are experts in this area with a high percentage of successful challenges – 96.7%
If there is not a defence, or the NIP cannot be challenged, we will also advise you as to any relevant mitigating circumstances which may help your case and keep any penalties to a minimum.
If you receive a Notice of Intended Prosecution you are required to identify the driver of the vehicle. You must do this within 28 days and if you fail to do so, you have committed a further offence for which your licence can be endorsed with 6 penalty points and a fine up of £1,000 imposed, unless you can show that it is impossible to comply despite your best reasonable and diligent enquires to establish the driver’s identity.
Once the Police have identified the driver, they will clarify their intended course of action, whether it be a driver training course, a Fixed Penalty or Court Summons / Requisition. The Police have 6 months to progress a case.
If you would prefer us to deal with the NIP and paperwork that you have received, we would be happy to do so.
