NIP speeding ticket more than 14 days after just bought my bike before dvla had changed keeper help!

Hi, there i bought my new bike and rode back to sheffield from brighton. got flashed on empty road, dual carriageway).
i bought the bike that day sunday 8/7/12. i assume they sent a letter to the previous keeper as he would've had to post the logbook over etc so for a few days before dvla had me registered as owner.
i have now recieved the NIP dated 8/8/12 one month after the offence.
will i be able to get it annulled as it is over 14 days? if so how do i go about doing this?
any help much appreciated!

Doubt it

They sent it to the registered keeper (as far as they knew) as of the time of the offence and within 14 days. Presume he advised of change when he got it so now it's with you.

Bet there's a get-out for them anyhow for vehicles sold, similar to hire cars where they only have to advise the hire company. 

Would suggest you remove the confession above as well, better to put was flashed without the speed possibly?

If was down to you then just take the points.  There's little point is clutching at straws in looking for a technicality as a way of getting off.

Generally

DVLA advise up to 4 weeks wait for a new logbook - I would have thought that the "Road Safety" partnerships will have a contingency plan in place for these circumstances (they'll be getting vehicle details from DVLA).

There was a scam some time back where tickets were being sent out, and one person was "blaming" another for the speeding offence in order to cause extensive investigations and so as to cause a "timeout" (ie, because a prosecution hadn't been brought in a given time, RSP's were forced to drop the case); they tend to hammer down on these ideas like this pretty quickly.

14 day rule

the 14 days only applies to the original NIP if this was sent to the previous keeper (as it is likely he was the RK at the time according to DVLA's records) then they have done what is required.


The police can then take their time finding out who the driver was i think they have up to 6 months to do this.

Unfortunately for you this is not a loophole. They can pursue you.  Regards, Andrew Campbell, Bikelawyer Motorcycle Accident Solicitors, MCN Legal Expert.

NIP's

I believe they now have 14 days from when they reasonably found out the details of the rider/driver but has to be within the 6 months time limit.
