Fail To Identify Driver / Notice Of Intended Prosecution (NIP)

A Notice of Intended Prosecution [NIP], also known as 172 notice, will be issued if you have committed a motoring offence and were not given a verbal warning at the scene.

The police have 14 days to inform you of this and to issue you with this notice. If you receive this notice after the 14 days, the offence is usually void. This gives the owner of the vehicle up to 28 days to provide the details of the driver who committed the offence.
