Caught Speeding

There are sentencing guidelines to help Magistrates decide what penalty to impose; and as you’d expect, the higher the recorded speed, the likelihood of disqualification becomes greater. The speed you were driving, any previous convictions and your ability to pay a speeding fine are also, all taken in to account by the magistrate.

You Could face a fine of up to £1000 (£2,500 for motor way offences), between three and six fixed penalty points on your licence and a discretionary driving ban. Points Accumulation or “totting up” is one of the main reasons drivers or motorcyclists can be disqualified. If a driver or motorcyclist reaches 12 or more penalty points within a three-year period, the court must impose a disqualification of at least six months, unless there are "special reasons" why it shouldn't.
