Ask a Traffic Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Jo C, I’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
Are you aware that this is a paying site?
Are you sure you want a call?
It will rack up costs?
Is that company the registered keeper?
Sorry for the delay.
Ok, but did they send the NIP to your Dad?
Is your father connected to the company?
Thanks for the information
In principle, you could send back the S172 request explaining that the company doesn’t own the vehicle. The problem is that only gets you so far. I would imagine they will say that this substantially complies with the rules. It is difficult to tell really on these facts but they will have some explanation for this. I can see from the time periods that they will be saying that it was sent elsewhere first.
Even if they accept that though, they will only send a fresh NIP out to your father. He could argue that exceeds the 14 day rule though but nothing is ever guaranteed with these things. It is a massive risk.
if they don't lay an information within 6 months of the offence then they are out of time although if you fail to identify then the time runs from the date of failing to identify.
If you can’t stand the points on your licence though then I suppose that is your only option in the hope that you are lucky.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
You do need to email them about it but they will do that for you.
