Failure to Respond to a Notice of Intended Prosecution

This offence carries a very strict liability.

Passing the Notice of Intended Prosecution to the person actually driving the vehicle at the time of the offence, filling in the form incorrectly or not following all of the instructions to the letter can still lead to a successful prosecution, which comes with 6 penalty points and a fine.

However, the offence is often charged alongside the initial offence, commonly such as speeding, and it may be possible to avoid conviction for the Failure to Respond in some cases.
