NIP Checker

Is your Notice of Intended Prosecution valid?

If the police suspect that you have committed a road traffic offence, they must send you a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP). Offences that require a NIP include speeding, careless driving and traffic signal offences.

If you have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution, you should consult a Motoring Lawyer to check whether or not it is valid. If the NIP does not comply with the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988, it may be invalid. Under s.1 of the act, certain offences require service of the Notice of Intended Prosecution within 14 days of the alleged offence.

Complete our short Notice of Intended Prosecution Checker to see if your NIP is valid.
