When a Notice of Intended Prosecution is received, the form must be filled out and returned within 28 days. Even if a passenger has received it, it is not to be handed to the driver. Failing to provide details or to identify the driver can lead to prosecution and fines of up to £1000 and so must be taken seriously.
Notices are sent to the registered driver of a vehicle, and it is the responsibility of the registered driver to provide the relevant details to the best of their knowledge. Failing to provide accurate details can lead to the same consequences.
There may be occasions where more time is needed to provide the necessary details, in cases such as these the police may grant extra time, however it is important to read all the details provided with a notice and ensure your obligations are fulfilled.
If you are accused of Failing to Provide Details, you should seek legal advice immediately.
It is vital that you receive the best advice possible and provide as much detail of the facts of your case as you can to ensure the right result for you.
