Why Choose Banner Jones?
Every year in England and Wales many motorists are caught speeding.
Many of these speeding offences are minor and are dealt with by the
issuing of a fixed penalty notice. There are however a number of cases
that may result in more serious consequences. Ensure you stay within
the speed limits on the road and on the right side of the law by reading
our speeding offence advice guide.
Fixed fee,
clear and
competitive

charges
Speeding Offence Process
There are two instances where you may be caught
speeding; by a police officer or by a speeding camera.
If you have been caught speeding by a police officer
the process is fairly straightforward. There is no need
for you to serve a Notice of Intended Prosecution.
For less serious offences where you may have been
travelling a few mph above the speed limit, you are
likely to be offered a speed awareness course or a
fixed penalty notice. This will be issued to you by the
police officer at the time of the offence. Many drivers
accept responsibility at this time without realising
they have the opportunity to dispute the case
subsequently if they wish.
If you were travelling in excess of 20mph above the
speed limit this is classified as a more serious case
and the procedure is different. It is most likely that a
summons/court requisition is recommended, in
which case you could be waiting anytime from 2-6
months before you are served with procedural
documents.
If you have been caught speeding by a speeding
camera many of these offences are now prosecuted
on the photographic evidence provided by the speed
camera. The standard procedure is that the owner of
the vehicle caught speeding will receive a Notice of
Intended Prosecution through the post. The document
will usually state a specific time frame in which you
must respond, this is crucial to the progress of the case.
If you believe that you were not the driver of the
vehicle or that you were not travelling at the speed
alleged you should speak with a motoring offence
solicitor who will be able to advise you on any
possible defence.
Speeding Fine Penalties
If you are not offered a speed awareness course by a
police officer you will most likely be issued with a
fixed penalty notice, this is a conditional offer
proposed. This allows you to pay a fixed penalty of
£60 along with your driving licence being endorsed
with 3 penalty points. With a fixed penalty notice
you are not required to attend court meaning there
are no court fees or other associated costs. This
punishment is the same regardless of your
circumstances or those of the offence. In order to
proceed you are required to accept the offer and
comply with the terms imposed within 28 days, you
should then deal with the case as instructed.
If you have received a speeding court summons due to
your case being too serious for a fixed penalty notice,
a conviction can result in 3-6 penalty points. You will
also receive a substantial fine, the maximum is £1,000
except for motorway offences where the maximum
fine is £2,500. If you have been driving significantly
above the limit an instant disqualification may be
recommended.
Speed Enforcement
The Association of Chief Police officers has issued a speed enforcement policy guide. This suggests that an
enforcement will usually occur when a driver exceeds the speed limit by a particular margin. Normally this is
10 percent of the speed limit plus an additional 2 mph. It also sets out guidelines for when it is appropriate to
issue a summons. Please note this is a guideline and a police office has discretion to act outside of these
guidelines providing they act fairly and consistently.

Every year in England and Wales many motorists are caught speeding. Many of these speeding offences are minor and are dealt with by the issuing of a fixed penalty notice. There are however a number of cases that may result in more serious consequences. Ensure you stay within the speed limits on the road and on the right side of the law by reading our speeding offence advice guide. Fixed fee, clear and competitive conveyancing charges Speeding Offence Process There are two instances where you may be caught speeding; by a police officer or by a speeding camera. If you have been caught speeding by a police officer the process is fairly straightforward. There is no need for you to serve a Notice of Intended Prosecution. For less serious offences where you may have been travelling a few mph above the speed limit, you are likely to be offered a speed awareness course or a fixed penalty notice. This will be issued to you by the police officer at the time of the offence. Many drivers accept responsibility at this time without realising they have the opportunity to dispute the case subsequently if they wish. If you were travelling in excess of 20mph above the speed limit this is classified as a more serious case and the procedure is different. It is most likely that a summons/court requisition is recommended, in which case you could be waiting anytime from 2-6 months before you are served with procedural documents. If you have been caught speeding by a speeding camera many of these offences are now prosecuted on the photographic evidence provided by the speed camera. The standard procedure is that the owner of the vehicle caught speeding will receive a Notice of Intended Prosecution through the post. The document will usually state a specific time frame in which you must respond, this is crucial to the progress of the case. If you believe that you were not the driver of the vehicle or that you were not travelling at the speed alleged you should speak with a motoring offence solicitor who will be able to advise you on any possible defence. Speeding Fine Penalties If you are not offered a speed awareness course by a police officer you will most likely be issued with a fixed penalty notice, this is a conditional offer proposed. This allows you to pay a fixed penalty of £60 along with your driving licence being endorsed with 3 penalty points. With a fixed penalty notice you are not required to attend court meaning there are no court fees or other associated costs. This punishment is the same regardless of your circumstances or those of the offence. In order to proceed you are required to accept the offer and comply with the terms imposed within 28 days, you should then deal with the case as instructed. If you have received a speeding court summons due to your case being too serious for a fixed penalty notice, a conviction can result in 3-6 penalty points. You will also receive a substantial fine, the maximum is £1,000 except for motorway offences where the maximum fine is £2,500. If you have been driving significantly above the limit an instant disqualification may be recommended. Speed Enforcement The Association of Chief Police officers has issued a speed enforcement policy guide. This suggests that an enforcement will usually occur when a driver exceeds the speed limit by a particular margin. Normally this is 10 percent of the speed limit plus an additional 2 mph. It also sets out guidelines for when it is appropriate to issue a summons. Please note this is a guideline and a police office has discretion to act outside of these guidelines providing they act fairly and consistently.
