Fail to Provide Drivers Details/Notice of Intended Prosecution

In certain circumstances where a driver is not stopped by the police but is accused of having committed a road traffic offence, for example, being caught speeding on a camera or going through a red light, it is compulsory that the police send a notice of intended prosecution. The notice will require the registered keeper to assist in identifying the driver of the vehicle at the relevant time. The notice of intended prosecution must be sent by the police to the registered keeper within 14 days of the date of the alleged offence or you will have a concrete defence.

If you receive a notice of intended prosecution then you have 28 days to respond with the details of the driver or you will be guilty of this offence. If you do not know who the driver was at the relevant time you may have a defence if our motoring specialist solicitors  can show that you acted with 'reasonable diligence' to find out who the driver was.

Allegations of failing to provide drivers details are a complicated area of the law and often technical defences may be available through one of our solicitors. If you have failed to reply with the details of the driver, or if it has been alleged that you have failed to do so, our motoring solictors can help. Do not simply accept the contents of a summons, call our specialist driving offence solicitors now and we will assess your defence and ensure the best possible outcome for you.

The Penalty

A fine and six penalty points. However, the Magistrates may disqualify you for this offence and therefore once again if you are accused we would urge you to seek quality legal advice immediately from our specialist motoring solicitors.
