I have had the notice of intended prosecution and the conditional offer letter. I am not the registered keeper, my employer is, and they provided my details. The offence took place on 08/12/13, and the notice to the registered keeper was dated 03/01/14
They were unaware of any reason to contest, and were keen to ensure that they didn't attract a fine bu not supplying my details

It sounds like the original NIP was out of time.
It must be served within 14 days and it was served outside of this time.
You therefore need to write and clarify what the date of the offence and NIP was.
If they confirm it was outside the 14 day deadline then it is not valid
Your employer should not have nominated you as this may cause difficulties now
But the original NIP must be served within 14 days
If not then the whole process may be flawed.
Write back and state that it is flawed and why
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
is there also an issue where the chief constable needs to sign the NIP? As mine was signed by a PC?
No - its on behalf of the Chief Constable.
Ok, that's fine. thank you very much for your help. Do i use the conditional offer letter to 'appeal' and state the case as being out of time or do i need to write to them first?
I would write to them first, but do it quick and make sure you send it signed for.
Can I clarify anything else?
No that's it, thank you very much for your help.
