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)? - No
Is the NIP addressed to you personally? - No

NIP Wizard Recommendation
Based on these responses the Wizard suggested that this course of action should be considered:
  • Do nothing!

    The police are not requesting the information from you, they are requesting it from the person the NIP is addressed to.
    Wait until you receive a NIP addressed to you personally, then come back here.

But.... The advice to your wife would be to fill the NIP in naming you as the driver. You will then get one of your own.
As above, you wife should name you as the driver and then you will get your own NIP. Do not try to short cut the system by filling in a NIP addressed to your wife.
That speed makes you eligible for a course provided you have not done one for an offence committed in the last three years, failing that a fixed penalty of £100 and 3 points.
