Notice of Intended Prosecution

Received an NIP? Check whether its valid

How to check your Notice of Intended Prosecution:

If you have been given, or have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution – often referred to as an NIP, you will no doubt want to know whether it is valid, and legally compliant.

The rules for this are found in Section 1 of the Road Traffic Act 1988.

Under this section, certain road traffic offences require service of an NIP within 14 days of the date of the alleged offence. This starts from the day after the date of the alleged offence.

If you are worried, please call us immediately on 0203 627 9580.

REMEMBER: It is sufficient for a Police Officer to verbally inform you of Notice of Intended Prosecution, and again the 14 days will begin from the day after the date of the alleged offence.

If you have received an NIP and need help, please call us immediately on 0203 627 9580
