Whatever road traffic offence you are accused of committing, our solicitors will be able to help you.
About Notices of Intended Prosecution/Request for Driver Details
As the police are not required to stop every driver suspected of committing a motoring offence, you may be made aware of allegations by a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP). This is a written warning that you are going to be facing a prosecution soon. It is therefore vital that if you receive one, you should get in touch with Lupton Fawcett defence team immediately.
The NIP must be sent to the driver or registered owner of a vehicle so that it is received within the normal course of post within 14 days of an alleged offence. If you did not receive your NIP within 14 days, please contact us as there is a good chance you may be able to avoid a fixed penalty or prosecution.
If you did receive the NIP on time, and you are requested to confirm driver details, you then have 28 days to reply and confirm who the driver was at the time of the alleged offence. Failure to comply can lead to additional penalties, including disqualification from driving, penalty points on your licence and a fine of £1,000 or more.
For advice on what to do upon receipt of an NIP and/or request for driver details, please get in touch with the Motoring Offences team.
Motoring offence penalties
Penalties, including points, a fine or a ban, can have serious effects on your life:
- points can result in higher insurance premiums for at least the three years they are on your licence – some insurance penalise you for five years or more;
- a large fine can cause you financial difficulties; and
- a disqualification can result in loss of employment or hinder your livelihood.
From dealing with fixed penalty tickets for speeding fines, to providing advice and representation at court, Lupton Fawcett dedicated driving offence solicitors can guide you through what is a very complex area of law by giving you the insight and advice you need to present your motoring offence case in the best possible light.
Whatever your circumstances, finding out the options available to you and obtaining the best guidance is critical. Our lawyers, based in Leeds, York and Sheffield, provide practical, competitively priced solutions to help drivers across the UK to minimise the impact of motoring offences.
Our team is particularly successful at persuading courts that the loss of a licence will cause exceptional hardship, thus allowing drivers to stay on the road.

Jeremy (Scott), I just wanted to thank you for today. I think your presence with me at the police station really helped, and lead to the charges being dropped.
Thank you once again for all your help (Jeremy Scott) and support through, what was, an extremely stressful time and also for achieving such a positive outcome for myself. I honestly thought I would get 8 points and a huge fine, so that was a massive relief.
‘The case against me has been dropped. What a relief. I feel much in your debt. With much thanks,’
“Jeremy Scott is a highly experienced regulatory lawyer.”
