Evening.

Had a NIP through today for doing 63 in a 30 it was at 7.50am on a 2 mile 2 laned straight on an industrial estate. I have no excuse for what I have done and I know I am going to get summoned to court.

I'm a bit apprehensive on what punishment to expect and what to say in court as I have never been in this position before. I've held a clean licence for almost 6 years now and I have no other criminal convictions, I also work in the motor trade as a parts specialist so my licence is quite important to my job role plus the fact I have just found out my wife is expecting which is another reason to want to keep my licence! Im obviously going to plead guilty to the charge and hope for the best but if anybody could advise one extremely anxious 26 year old I would be grateful. Thanks!

Seeing as I wasn't encouraging him, your post somewhat irrelevant. The OP seems unable to decide what would be the best outcome. It is an important decision to make especially with a heavily pregnant father and a job that requires a licence.

The OP is not the first to feel remorseful, but they need to try and focus that on not getting any more tickets, and get the best outcome for this offence as well.

It makes a driving ban look easy in comparison happy.gif

Points and fine would be the best outcome but I'm not banking on that. I will try and suggest that the points will be more of a punishment for me than a ban due to running the risk of totting up in the future. I've gathered all the advice I need so the admin can lock the thread if you wish.

Best not to lock a thread before you've had chance to update with your court result; this will help future members who may find themselves in a similar situation. Good luck in court.

Well a bit of an update.... I have received nothing back after sending off the NIP, it does state to ring them after 28 days of no reply but I've just left it. NIP was signed for on the 9/3 and today's date is 20/4. At what point does it become time barred?

Proceedings have to be started within 6 months of the alleged offence, it may take a few weeks then for you to be made aware of the proceedings.

And they usually use that full 6 months.
