Were you the driver at the time of the alleged offence detailed on the notice?

Advice

If you were the driver at the time of the alleged offence you must complete the appropriate section of the form provided by the police confirming your details. Depending on the speed alleged, you will then receive either an offer of a fixed penalty, an offer to attend a speed awareness course or a court summons.

You should only complete the form if it is addressed to you.

If you already have 9 or more points on your licence you will not be able to accept any fixed penalty offered and will almost certainly receive a court summons for the offence.

Please note that the penalty for failure to provide information is 6 points and a fine of up to £1,000.

Do You Know Who the Driver Was?

Advice

If you know who the driver was you should complete the form provided by the police with the details of that person, who will then be contacted separately by the police.

You should only complete the form if it is addressed to you. For further advice call us on 0800 433 4678 or e-mail contact@mol-ltd.com

Advice

If you are not certain who the driver was you are still required to provide all the information in your power to give in relation to the identity of the driver. You should complete the form at the most appropriate section and provide, in a covering letter, all the names and addresses of the people who could potentially have been driving. If you are sure you were not driving at the time of the alleged offence you should state that in your letter.

If you fail to identify the driver you may be prosecuted for failure to provide information contrary to s172 Road Traffic Act 1988. In order to successfully defend a prosecution for this offence you may need to satisfy a Court that you did everything reasonably within your power to identify the driver.

Please note you should not, under any circumstances, give information to the police which you know to be false. Doing so could lead to a prosecution for attempting to pervert the course of justice and a potential custodial sentence.
