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? - Yes
Although you are the Registered Keeper, were you also the keeper of the vehicle concerned (the person normally responsible for it) at the time of the alleged offence? - Yes
Were you driving? - Yes
Which country did the alleged offence take place in? - Scotland

NIP Wizard Recommendation
Based on these responses the Wizard suggested that this course of action should be considered:
  • The law requires you to provide the information requested in the Section 172 notice within the 28 day period, naming yourself as the driver. If you are considering obtaining formal legal advice, do so before returning the notice.

    Depending on your circumstances, you may wish to consider completing the form, but returning it unsigned. By doing so there is a risk that you will be convicted under s172, which would attract 6 penalty points and a fine; in most cases this is likely to exceed the penalty for the speeding offence itself.

    You should note that there is nothing to be gained by responding any earlier than you have to at any stage of the process. You are likely to receive a Conditional Offer of a Fixed Penalty (COFP) and further reminder(s). If you want to continue the fight, you should ignore all correspondence from the police until you receive a summons. You need to understand from the outset that while you will receive much help and support from members on the forums, you will need to put time and effort into fighting your case and ultimately be prepared to stand up in court to defend yourself.

Scotland?

Don’t follow the wizard advice unless you want a trip to court and 6 points.

Unless I've missed something, there has never been a Scottish unsigned case which has gone to trial - the PF has always dropped the case once he has seen the whites of the accused's eyes - unless there have been further developments that I've missed.

I think JLC was suggesting OP meant England, but for some reason, typed Scotland:

Ahh. It makes sense now (other than why the OP put Scotland - but OPs say strange things).

Please do this, at the moment you have given us no idea what offence is alleged, let alone what questions you have about the matter.

Well known location for me as I live 800 yards away. Signage is all good.

I’m not sure why you put Scotland, but it’s most certainly not Scotland and so unsigned is not an option for you unless you want 6 points.

Most people caught there will be below the 42mph cut off for being offered a course, if you were doing over that at that point you really do deserve the three points as that road is not safe for those speeds by any reckoning.
