I have received a requirement to identify driver dated

This answer was rated:

Hello ... I have received a requirement to identify driver dated 19.7.16 for an alleged offence (43mph in a 30mph) dated 2.7.16. Is this time barred under the 14 day rule ? Kind regards MIchael

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

Are you the registered keeper??

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My company is the registered keeper.

What is the date of issue on the NIP to the company?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They have not issued an NIP so far ... they are asking who the driver is 17 days after the alleged offence.

Yes, what is the date of that request?

Not when you received it, but the date. Is that 2nd July?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the notice dated 19th July relates to the offence which occurred on 2nd July does state that "it is intended to institute proceedings against the driver"

Ok - then it should have been issued within 14 days.

It has not been and is therefore time barred, out of time

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Very good thanks .. So I should write back saying that it is time barred ? Is there a specific wording I need to use ?

Just that it is out of time. Should have been issued within 14 days, it was not.

Does that clarify? Alex

Alex one more point car is leased from Mercedes Finance.. in effect my Company is not registered keeper.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That just occurred to me

The Notice needs to be issued within 14 days of the offence to whoever the keeper on the V5 is.

If it was, then its not out of time.

Does that clarify? Alex
