The offence was on the 20/08/2014 but the original NIP was not sent to the hire company until 04/09/2014 which is 15 days from the alleged offence (inclusive of the day of the offence). Sorry for the misunderstanding. I gained a copy of the original NIP sent to the hire company and this is the date of issue on it?
I have filled in the form with my details, is this the form you mean? I have now received a letter saying that I can accept a fixed penalty of 3 points and £100 fine. So how do I not accept the fixed penalty and go to court to argue my case and do you think I would be better off going to court or just accepting the fixed penalty?
If I chose to go to court are they likely to issue me with more points or a higher fine?
Thank you for your help!
