Will I lose my licence?

I’ve held a car licence for 25 years and its been clean for at least 5 years. I past my Direct Access in March 2012. Over the Xmas period I drove through a speed camera in a car doing 36 in a 30 zone and the camera flashed at least once to my knowledge. I have been told that if I am prosecuted for speeding, I will lose both car and bike licences under the 2 year probationary period ruling. Is this correct? If not, what is the worst case I could be presented with? Being self employed, I need my car licence. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Don't worry.......relax.......

2 year probationary rule is for new drivers or riders after passing their first test, doesn't affect you cos you´ve held full car licence for so long. Worst case will probably be 3 points or speed awareness course. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!! :wink:
