FAQ: How much trouble can I get in for speeding?
It¹s very easy to get carried away with your new purchase, regardless of its power levels and capacity.
Even a 125 can go fast enough to get you points on your licence on a country road. Here are the current Association of Chief Police Officers guidelines for speeding punishments:
Speed Limit (mph) Fixed Penalty Summons
20 25 35
30 35 50
40 46 66
50 57 76
60 68 86
70 79 96
The Fixed Penalty is currently £60 and three endorsement points.
If you are Summoned the Magistrates have the discretion to fine you up to £1000, give you from three to 12 points, disqualify you, or even send you off for compulsory re-testing.
