Full Version: [NIP Wizard] What i'm I looking at in the courts? (56 in 30)
FightBack Forums > Queries > Speeding and other Criminal Offences
NIP Details and Circumstances
What is the name of the Constabulary? -
Date of the offence: - April 2010
Date of the NIP: - 0 days after the offence
Date you received the NIP: - 34 days after the offence
Location of offence (exact location as it appears on the NIP: important): - A134 road at Honey Tye, Leavenheath
Was the NIP addressed to you? - Yes
Was the NIP sent by first class post, second class or recorded delivery? - First
If your are not the Registered Keeper, what is your relationship to the vehicle? -
How many current points do you have? - 3
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 - no real excuse other than long straight safe road, i did not think it was a 30 :-(

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? - Unsure
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? - England

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.

    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.

Why are you unsure when the NIP arrived? You are the RK, so it should have arrived with you within 14 days. Or have you recently moved or new purchaser of the car?
to answer your question, Sentencing Guidelines are for 7 to 56 days disqualification or 6 points and a fine equivalent to your net weekly income, reduced by one third for a early guilty plea.
Thank you for your the 6 point compulsory? 5 + fine would suit this possible...

NIP - (had trouble entering the correct date with the wizard....something about incorrect dates???...)
I'm new on here, so please be gentle ;-)
no 6 points isnt obligatory, but it is what the mags guide lines suggest is appropriate, youd need to give them good reason not to
I got done doing 58 in a 30 and with alot of money managed to get 5 and a 160 quid fine.

Good luck
