I think it's 3 months it may be 6 though...........

EDIT Looks like they have 14 days to issue a NIP ( notice of intended prosecution )

6 months to prosecute you. I.e day you got caught and the traffic CPS have six months to prosecute, i.e fine, points or sort date for court hearing if you want to dispute it.

The 14 days business looks rather less than straightforward if you follow the links above. Does anyone have a definitive answer?

Don't wait - check online to see if you've been caught now!

Head over to the forums at pepipoo for detailed advice.. but the law as it currently stands is that the police must issue the speeding ticket (NIP) within 14 days.

[LIST]
[*]These are days, not working days
[*]A ticket posted first class is deemed to have been recieved the day after posting
[*]Therefore the latest the police could post the ticket would be 'speeding day' + 13.
[/LIST]

However, with Christmas post etc there may be a ticket in the post waiting for you, which you have yet to recieve.

IIn sum, if you don't get one within three weeks, you're probably clear. If you do get one, the pepipoo guys will help you out.

The pepipoo forums are definitely the best place to go as much of the advice posted in this thread is incorrect.

The police have to serve the inital NIP (Notice of Intended Prosecution) within 14 days to the registered owner at the address on the V5 registration document - this means if your car is leased or your DVLA details were out of date then the police don't have to get a NIP to you within 14 days. If the lease company for example receives the NIP, they then fill it in with your name and the police send a new NIP to you however this second NIP has no exact time limit.

Once you receive a NIP in your name and fill it out confirming you were the driver then the police will offer you a fixed penalty notice if it's within certain limits but if your speeding was considerably higher then they will send you a summons.

They have six months to lay information with the court in England, if you refuse the Conditional offer of fixed penalty then they will normally do this towards the end of the six months. Aside from in Scotland you don't need to actually be in court within those six months.

If you are the registered owner of the vehicle and your DVLA details are correct then you're out of the initial 14 days however if the police can prove they send the NIP first class within the 14 days then it's still considered served and therefore legal.
