> Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) Plus Company cars , This article explains the 14-day rule for serving a NIP
Options V
See our NIP page for more details.

The NIP means they are going to prosecute you for the offence, and it can take two forms:
  • A written NIP (e.g. if you get a ticket from a speed camera);
  • Verbal NIP.
If you were not stopped at the time of the alleged offence, the police have 14 days to issue a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) to the Registered Keeper - the individual who's name appears on the V5 registration document and this letter from Staffordshire Constabulary may help you to understand the 14-day rule. This forum post explains the 14 day rule in more detail.

The situation with regard to company cars is more complex than privately owned vehicles. This forum topic will give you an example of a case involving a company vehicle and this link may help you to understand the legal position.
