Type of claim

Speeding is the second most common motoring offence in Scotland; after the dangerous use of a vehicle. In 2020-2021, 20% of all motoring offences were speeding. Speeding is a severe offence that can risk you and other road users, which is why more speeding restrictions have been put in place to support road safety and avoid accidents from occurring.

Speed limits are put in place in areas where speed limits are likely to be ignored, which can be dangerous to other road users. With the increase of traffic and speed cameras on the road, more and more individuals are being charged with similar offences threatening their points totting up, leading to losing their licence.

What is totting up?

Depending on how long you have been driving, you can only accumulate a specific number of points before losing your licence. New drivers, (within the first 2 years of passing their tests) can only accumulate up to 6 points on their licence before getting their licence revoked. If your licence is revoked you must reapply for your licence and retake your test to be able to drive again. The fixed penalty notice for speeding is £100 and 3 points on your licence, which means you can only commit this offence twice, before getting your licence completely revoked as a new driver, which can be detrimental to any new driver who worked very hard for their new licence.

As an experienced driver, you can accumulate 12 points on your licence. If you have been charged with a speeding offence and risk losing your licence as a consequence, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland.

Penalties for speeding and the consequences

For less severe speeding offences, drivers are likely to be given a fixed penalty notice, which is 3 points on your licence and a £100 fine. If this is your first minor offence within the last 2 years, you may be offered a speed awareness course, which evades you from getting points from your licence. The purpose of this course is to enforce good driving behaviours, and these courses usually cost £80 – 100. If you were charged with speeding, we highly advise you to contact our experienced solicitors and determine whether or not you will be offered a driving awareness course.

For more severe offences you may face a £1,000 fine or £2,500 for motorway offences, and up to 6 points on your licence, which can be detrimental to some drivers. If you have been charged with a speeding offence, no matter how severe, we highly advise you to contact one of our experienced motoring solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland. We provide all of our clients with free initial consultations, helping you determine the best outcome for your case and all your available options.
