Are you the registered keeper?
Does it say reminder on their anywhere?
Were you stopped at scene?
And the DVLA have the right address for you and it?
Yes, Im here.
If that is right then they are time barred. A NIP should have either been delivered at scene or issued by post within 14 days. They did not.
However, it is important to disclose the identity of the driver. If you do not they will prosecute you for failing to identify which is probably their game.
The speeding may be time barred because of the NIP but that does not mean your S172 responsibilities do not apply so you must truthfully name the driver.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Then you would have to be wiling to spend time contesting it.
You would have to refuse the offers of fixed penalty etc.
If they go to court then make an application to strike it out on the basis that the NIP is out of time.
It won't come to that though. Usually you hear nothing else from them.
You mean a fixed penalty or the course?
Then you have to decide whether you are willing to run the risk.
If you do the course it will all disappear.
If you refuse either and go to court then you can argue that they were time barred but that is always a risk.
It depends how strongly you feel.
Also, the real issue for the likes of you and me is the wasted time involved in going to court. It is all very well if you live on benefits or off your husband. Real proper people have better things to do with their time though.
