Speeding

Driving a vehicle at excess speed is one of the most common motoring offences and is capable of being dealt with in any of the following ways:

A number of different factors will determine which of these ways is followed.

An offence of speeding requires the service by the police of a Notice of Intended Prosecution. Without this, it is possible that the prosecution may be rendered invalid.

 

What are the Penalties for Speeding?

Speeding offences can carry penalty points, a fine, and a discretionary disqualification. If you already have 6 or more points on your licence, you are at risk of a driving ban by “totting up”, and you should get immediate legal advice.
