Please do not post personal details for obvious reasons - No postmark on the envelope, but the NIP itself is dated 13/4/16 - 20 days after the alleged offence.

NIP Wizard Responses
These were the responses used by the Wizard to arrive at its recommendation:
Have you received a NIP? - Yes
Are you the Registered Keeper of the vehicle concerned (is your name and address on the V5/V5C)? - Yes
Did the first NIP arrive within 14 days? - No
Was there a valid reason for the NIP's late arrival? - No

NIP Wizard Recommendation
Based on these responses the Wizard suggested that this course of action should be considered:
  • The first NIP to the Registered Keeper must arrive within 14 days unless there is a valid reason why that was not possible, for example a recent change of details.

Who is the RK? If you, the OP, how long have you owned the vehicle?
Logician
Get out the V5C and check that your address shown is current and correct in every detail. Check that the date shown next to the doc ref number at the end of several sections is prior to the offence date.
