Been Caught Speeding

Hello everyone,

So as the title, I've been caught speeding for the first time.

i was caught doing 35 in a 30. I was driving my mother in-laws car at the time.

With this being the first time i aint got a clue what happens ?

My mother in-law got the letter through the door this morning asking who was driving.

Im 22 and being driving 4 and a half years.

any ideas what might happen ?

thanks

One of two things given the margin - they might offer you a chance of a one-day driver awareness course in lieu of points otherwise it will be a fixed penalty, three points and 64 fine.

I think they will condemn you to hanging at Tower of London for such a huge speed.

i do hope its the course i get to go on then.

Im going to throw another spanner in the works actually as I've just remembered. Nearly a year ago i got letter through the door saying i was speeding but no action was took, its was only a warning, will this effect the outcome ?

I would have thought that would have been a warning too. Usually i think they allow a 10% discretion - it was only 2 mph more than this

I was clocked in May doing 42mph in a 30, ended up with 3 points and a 90 fine and was not offered a speed awareness course.

well this was my reply straight away, i was thinking she's old, it isn't going to harm her... but no was the answer, going to take like a man and cry haha....

I'm hoping they are going to offer me the course but with being young I'm thinking it could be just a straight 3 points

Is there a legal requirement to ID the driver if you get these letters?

Both Northumbria police and Durham offer peed awareness courses. The limit for Durham is 37in a 30, not sure about northumbria, but I was caught doing 35 in 30 near fading tons BMW and was offered he course.

Erm yes, it would be quite an easy get-out if it wasn't.

Can't believe the M-i-L won't take the points.

I put my mum on my cars because it reduces the premium, but also because if it ever happens i'm gonna try give them to her: D (joke - she's actually got 6 points from bus lanes in London!)

You sure she wasn't doing burnouts in a bus lane?

Driving in a bus lane is a civil penalty and no points....

Ah maybe she was just shitting me then.....my mum is like that!

Must admit since she moved to London she does drive a lot more aggressively!! So it could have been exactly as you describe!
