Hello Caroline my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Do you know the date the NIP was sent to the registered keeper?
Just to be clear this is a Company vehicle? Does the Company keep a log of who is driving please?
But the registered keeper must have given details of you - they would not have gotten the details any other way
This is because the keeper would have been summonsed for a Section 172 offence of failing to identify the driver if he had not responded.
There he must have responded and nominated you.
What you need to do is write back and say that you are not the registered keeper, but give names of all 3 that were driving, but you do not know who was driving at the time
Your responsibility is to give details that could lead to the identification of a drriver
Your company is responsible for keeping a record of who is driving and when.
Well your employer can't be right
The Section 172 notice is ALWAYS sent to the registered keeper and they HAVE to nominate a driver
This is how it works
Yes he must have nominated you.
The time lapse does not matter. If they sent the Section 172 notice to the registered owner within 14 days then it is in time.
Therefore as long as it was sent, it will be in time
You just need to be careful because if you do not respond to the Section 172 notice (and it must be in your name) you could face 6 points for failure to identify the driver
Fill it in as much as you can and send a covering letter listing ALL the possible people who were driving.
Explain it is a Company vehicle and they should contact the company for a log of who was driving.
But your requirement is to name all possible drivers
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes you can ask for a photo. Generally it should say the speed ie 55mph in a 50mph zone
Its 10% plus 2mph
So it means you needed to have been doing 35mph or above.
Normally they do.
They ought to have done but it does not make it illegal not to.
If this answers your question could I invite you leave feedback on my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.
