Notice of Intended Prosecution - it arrived after 14 days. Can I get off?

My son has received Notice of Intended Prosecution from Suffolk Constabulary for driving at 37mph in a 30mph limit on 2 November 2012. I, as a named driver, was driving the car on the day in question. The notice is dated 19 November 2012 and was not delivered by the Post Office until after he left home for a 14 day holiday on the 18 November 2012.

As the notice was not even produced within the allowed 14 days am I correct in thinking that it has not been correctly served under the related legislation?

It's a technicality, but you need to seek professional legal advice about whether you can challenge it.
