Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether the address the DVLA had was your old one?
Did you notify the DVLA of the date of change? If so when was that? When did you purchase the vehicle?
As long as the original NIP was done within 14 days that is all that matters.
Therefore if the original NIP was sent to a different address and you were identified as the driver then it is valid as long as it is 14 days.
So if there was an NIP originally within 14 days then yes it is in time.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
You should write and ask.
If there was a previous NIP ask for a copy
If there was not, then it is out of time
It must be served within 14 days
Does that help?
You mean they would send you a copy - not necessarily.
If you have been nominated you would not get a copy of the original one
Your NIP is the date it was issued to you
Write and ask for confirmation as to whether it was the ONLY Nip as you believe it is time barred unless they can provide another one
I can't tell if there was an original as this is a question and answer site
Only the ticket until would know this
Which is why you should write saying its time barred and see if there is another NIP nominating you.
But if the original NIP (if there was one) was within 14 days then YOURS is in time
Its all about when the FIRST one was issued.
Which is why you need to write and say yours is out of time and can you have sight of any other NIP if it exists.
Does that clarify?
You may have just been nominated.
But you are not notified that this is the case.
Which is why you need to write and ask.
Can I clarify anything else for you today please?
