Frequently asked questions.

If you have been served with a NIP, you have 28 days to respond. You must give specific details, including the name of the person driving the vehicle at the time of the alleged offence.

Should you fail to provide the required information within the time allocated, you could face six penalty points in addition to any points attached to the original offence.

The police must issue a NIP to the registered owner of a vehicle  within 14 days of the alleged offence or when the police learned of the offence. If a NIP is issued after this time, any attempt to prosecute you may be invalid.

For minor motoring offences, the prosecution will try to keep matters out of the Court by issuing a fixed penalty notice or recommend a driver awareness course relevant to the offence committed – that’s if you don’t dispute that you committed the offence and agree to the punishment.

If you dispute the charges brought against you as a result of a NIP, you can defend against the allegation by requesting a Court hearing. You will then receive paperwork asking you to enter a plea. You should get in touch with Cartwright King immediately if you wish to take the matter to Court.
