NIP Not Accurate

NIP may be defective!

If your NIP is not accurate in relation to the date, time, place or alleged offence then you maybe able to defend the case.

The NIP has to be accurate to be effective.

There are various cases where for example the location of the alleged offence has been really vague and the courts have stated that this is not good enough!

Email us outlining the inaccuracy and she will be happy to give you a more detailed answer and advice on the best way forward.

Remember – A defective NIP is not a defence to failing to name the driver. You still have to name the driver if you know who it was. If you then want to challenge the original allegation then you need to reject the ticket and ask for a court hearing – but beware higher fines and court costs if you lose.

Remember – Certain offences do not require the service of a NIP, for example driving without due care and attention where there is an accident or driving without insurance. So always check with Emma before rejecting the chance of a fixed penalty.
