NOTICE OF INTENDED PROSECUTION (NIP)

The law requires drivers are given a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) as a warning they may be prosecuted for a motoring offence. You cannot be convicted of certain road traffic offences unless you have been warned that the question of prosecution would be taken into consideration by way of a notice of intended prosecution (Section 1 Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988). This document must be issued within 14 days of the date of the offence. It can also be given verbally by the police at the scene of the alleged motoring violation.

The most common instance where Notice is served is a NIP for speeding but they can also be issued for: 

  • When the police do not know who the driver is. For example, if a car registration has been captured by a member of the public, a police officer or on camera, i.e. at a red light
  • When police have been unable to stop a driver at the time of the incident

If you have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) and require expert legal advice or representation, call Brian Koffman & Co. We offer the very best privately funded defence representation to all motoring offences, including Notices of Intended Prosecution.

We are here to help and are proud of our positive result rate of over 96%. Contact us today.

I cannot thank Brian enough for the amount of commitment he put in to my case! He was able to explain the court process in simple terms, and I felt at ease knowing that someone so highly professional... was dealing with my case. His advice resulted in the case being dropped and it ended in my favour. After my experience I would definitely recommend Brian, as he handled everything so efficiently.

I have recently had the pleasure of dealing with Brian regarding a motoring offence for a close friend of mine. Brian has been amazing throughout the whole process with regular and clear... communication. Brian is professional and extremely knowledgeable in his field of expertise. Furthermore, and more importantly, Brian managed to get my friend the best possible outcome that we just didn’t think was possible. Hopefully, I never have to use Brian personally, however if I do commit a motoring offence, he will definitely be the man I call. I have already referred a family member of mine to Brian as I know he will be taken care of.Brian, thank you once again for all your hard work which in turn gave us the best possible outcome.read more

NIP STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS

The NIP must comply with some statutory requirements including the identification, location and date of the said offence. It needs to provide enough information to enable the driver to know exactly what he is supposed to have done. If the NIP is not completed properly it may mislead and could prejudice a defence. It is also important to check the date you receive your NIP as late service of one is a complete bar to a prosecution. We would advise checking the date stamp on the envelope if you believe it to be outside the 14 day period. A driver cannot be convicted unless the procedure is complied with properly, but you must nevertheless respond to the NIP.

If you have received a NIP you are required to identify the driver of the vehicle. You must do this within 28 days and if you fail to do so, you have committed a further offence for which your licence can be endorsed with 6 penalty points and a fine up of £1,000 imposed unless you can show that it is impossible to comply despite your best reasonable and diligent enquires to establish the driver’s identity.
