Provide a description of events (if you know what happened) telling us as much about the incident as possible - some things that may seem trivial to you may be important, so don't leave anything out. Please do not post personal details for obvious reasons - Didn't know I had tripped the camera. First I knew was the Nip today. Am I correct in thinking as it was sent on day 15 it is too late?

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.

Possibly, however there are a number of valid reasons this NIP was issued after 15 days:

- Are you the registered keeper?
- If you are, does the V5C have the correct name and address?
- Did you recently buy the vehicle? What is the date of the alleged offence and what is DocRef Date on page 2 of the V5C?
Yes, I had only bought the car 2 weeks before the offence. The dealer completed the v5 details, I haven't got the new one in my name but I did get one to say I no longer own my previous car I part exchanged with a refund of the tax.
Then it is highly likely when the police obtained the RK data it returned the previous owners details. If so you will have no defence based on a late NIP.
