If you have been stopped by the police for speeding, received a speeding ticket or have been caught speeding by a speed camera, it is important that the matter is addressed as soon as possible.

The beginning of the case for the majority of drivers is when a ‘fixed penalty notice’ is sent through to the address of the registered keeper with a request for further information. This is the start of the prosecution process and therefore may well be the beginning of your defence.  It is advised that a solicitor specialising in the defence of speeding offences is contacted at this stage.

To speak to a solicitor in Farleys’ motoring offences team, contact 0125 460 6090, or email us. Our lawyers are experienced in assisting drivers accused of motoring offences and have a proven track record of helping to reduce fines and prevent driving disqualification.

Speeding Fines and Penalties

The penalty range for speeding offences is from 3 – 6 penalty points, and is usually dependent on the amount by which the speed was in excess of the legal limit. If you were travelling 20mph above the speed limit, you are more likely to face six penalty points than if you were travelling 10mph above the limit.  The current maximum fines for speeding offences are up to £2,500 for motorway offences and up to £1,000 for offences on any other road.

If the speed is felt to be so excessive, the court can also disqualify you from driving.  A driving ban has the potential to severely impact most of us, but can be particularly distressing if your driving licence is essential to your work and livelihood.

It is also important to consider the cumulative effect.  If convicted of a number of offences, therefore totting up 12 penalty points, you will also be faced with losing your driving licence. Depending on the nature of the individual driving offences, our experienced solicitors may be able to assist you in ensuring you keep your licence.
