Speeding

Speeding is one of the most common driving offences in the UK, the repercussions of which vary depending upon the circumstances, but can be disastrous for families and businesses.

As a first time or repeat offender you may only have to attend a speed awareness course. Alternatively, you may receive an endorsement of 3 penalty points on your driving licence if you are given a Fixed Penalty Notice. In the worst case scenario where very high speeds are involved you may receive up to 6 points or be disqualified from driving for up to 56 days (or potentially longer).

Receiving 6 penalty points is halfway to a “totting-up” disqualification for a minimum of 6 months and for Probationary Drivers, this alone means your licence will be revoked.

If you have received a Notice of Intended Prosecutions, or a Single Justice Procedure Notice are required to go to Court for speeding, it is essential that you contact us as soon as possible so to ensure that you have the best possible advice as to the options available to you.

Our legal experts have considerable experience in speeding offences and ways around disqualification. If you would like to discuss your situation and obtain legal advice, please contact our legal experts to arrange a reduced fee initial meeting.
