Motoring Law Expert of the North

Speeding Offences Specialist Solicitor

Expert Motoring Solicitors Newcastle and Sunderland.

Our Expert Motoring Law Solicitors in Newcastle and Sunderland are here to help you. Most people who drive will exceed the speed limit at some point or another and will also sometimes get caught. There are many ways you can be caught speeding, such as speed cameras or police radar guns and when you do, the punishment will vary depending how fast you were going.

You are at least at risk of a fine and penalty points but could be disqualified.

If you have been caught speeding and you are facing a ban, at Emmerson Solicitors we know how worrying and upsetting the situation can be. Contact us before you reply to a summons. We have helped hunderds of clients to keep their driving licence.We can help you to decide what to do next.

What are the penalties for speeding?

Most speeding offences will be dealt with by a £100 fine and 3 points on your licence. If you are only just over the speed limit you may even avoid 3 points in return for attending a Speed Awareness Workshop.
However, the more you exceed the speed limit the more likely a disqualification is.

The court will decide how long your ban will be depending on the circumstances, but it will range anywhere from 7 days to 56 days.

Alongside the ban, 3 to 6 points may be added to your licence. The court may decide that the ban is enough in some cases and will not issue penalty points. If you already have 6 points on your licence, the court may impose another 6 points meaning you will be subject to an automatic 6 month ban due to totting up of 12 points.

You may also receive a fine of up to £1,000 for non-motorway speeding and up to £2,500 for motorway offences.

Do I have any defences available to me?

The court has wide discretion in these types of cases and will take into consideration any circumstances that impacted on your speed, such as an ill passenger or similar.

You should realise though, that the higher the speed you were travelling and especially if you were in excess of 30 mph over the speed limit, the tougher the court will be.

If you have previous good character, and cooperated fully then you may find the court is more lenient.

It is important to get specialist legal advice to try to reduce the ban imposed by the court.
