No. As Dipper has said, the registered keeper (the name on the registration document) must receive a NIP within 14 days. After that they can both take their time and use second class post.

Two cameras mounted side by side looking through the tops of the back doors like this?



it most likely isn't a speed camera set up it's ANPR.

Generally mobile units don't flash unless it is a portable gatso.

ANPR = Automatic Number Plate Recognition.

If you have been a naughty boy with no tax or insurance these boys will get you should you drive-by, good news really in my book.

P.S. Had to laugh at 'Crime Cameras' emblazoned all over the back of the van - classic! biggrin.gif

Automated Number Plate Recognition - used to check for no MOT, untaxed, uninsured and 'of interest' cars. Basically they are looking for those who are known to be criminals either by having a registration number that is known to the police or by using an untaxed car or one without an MOT or insurance.

At present I do feel some support for the system. It is alleged to be a system not to be feared but I would say "at the moment" as they are planning to use it to track where and when we all travel around the country. As far as I am concerned all that means is that I will use the country lanes more, enjoy my journeys more (even if they do take a little longer) and burn a lot more fuel as I have FUN scooting around enjoyable roads instead of along boring motorways thus avoiding the fixed ANPR cameras that are already in a lot of places and are being added to daily. Might upset one or two locals as well due to pollution (my main car's a diesel!).

The only time I will use motorways and dual carriageways a lot is either on my daily commute (that's when the A14 isn't blocked) or when towing my rally car outfit on its trailer.
