If your vehicle is detected exceeding the speed limit, a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) will be sent to you within 14 days of the alleged offence taking place. If you were not the driver at the time of the offence, under Section 172 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, you are required to disclose who was driving the vehicle at the time of the offence. Failure to comply with this requirement is a separate offence.

You have the option of accepting or rejecting the Conditional Offer in its entirety. A Conditional Offer is a legally mandated alternative to prosecution. Legislation establishes the level of financial penalty and points. If you receive a Conditional Offer, you will have the option of accepting a £100 fine AND three penalty points on your licence. If you do not accept this offer, you have the option of going to court instead.
If you accumulate 12 penalty points on your licence in three years, you will be required to appear in court and will be prohibited from driving for at least six months. If you are a new driver and receive six or more penalty points within two years of passing your test, your licence will be revoked and you will have to retake both the theory and practical tests. Penalty points are valid for three years but cannot be removed from your licence for four years.

I contacted scullion after being charged with some serious road traffic offences. At the first court date it turned out it was more serious than i thought! but thankfully Anna was on hand to keep me calm and make a fantastic plea deal. On the day of sentencing Urfan guided me through this and mitigated on my behalf to an outstanding level which resulted in me receiving the best possible outcome. Without their expertise, guidance and reassurance who knows what the outcome may have been. I can’t thank them enough for their service. I’m absolutely delighted with the outcome.
Micheal Stewart is the best defence lawyer I have had the privilege to meet. I was falsely accused of a driving offence which was an extremely worrying time. Micheal was confident from day one and put my mind at ease. Extremely friendly but exceptionally thorough from start to finish and the level of professionalism from start to finish was excellent. After this successful defence and a NOT GUILTY verdict I would recommend Micheal Stewart to any of my friends and family and to anyone else for that matter.
Having never needed solicitors previously Kristopher & all at Scullion Law kept me posted from my 1st phone call to the very end result. Guided me through each stage of the process & I felt that I could ask them any question & was made to feel at ease. Great advice & can honestly say they prepared my case very well & got me the best possible outcome. Would highly recommend!
Sincerely grateful to Nicholas Scullion and Kris Buchanan for representing me in court. With 30 years+ driving experience pleading Not Guilty to a motoring offence and having to go through the trial diets, at court, in person, was a first for me. From the initial contact with Nicholas and Kris, I was confident both were giving their best to achieve the best outcome. Explaining the details of the unfamiliar court process and what should be done, and when, was explained with clarity. Both were professional and knew their stuff. They had clearly thought through the possible approaches, in advance of the court dates and when in court knew what to say, and when, The result was deserted simpliciter. No hesitation in recommending Scullion Law…Worth every penny.
