How we can help

Speeding Legal Advice

A speeding offence attracts an endorsement of 3 to 6 penalty points and if your speed is deemed to be grossly excessive, the court has a discretionary power to disqualify. A fixed penalty notice is often offered in these cases with a 3 point endorsement and a fine. If this is not accepted and you proceed to court you risk the penalty being increased.

If you have penalty points on your licence and the imposition of further penalty points may take you to 12 points or more within 3 years you would contravene the totting up provisions or if your speed is grossly excessive you should seek immediate legal advice.

Types of Speeding Offences in Scotland

Fixed Penalty Notice

If you have been caught speeding, you may have been issued a Fixed Penalty Notice. You will be made a conditional offer of up to £100 fine and three penalty points. It is your decision to accept this offer or contest the matter to court. 

Court Prosecutions

If you already have nine points on your licence, or if you have been caught driving at a high speed, you will be prosecuted for your speeding offence in a Scottish Justice of the Peace Court. This could impose fines of up to £1000 or £2500 on the motorway and add more points to your licence.
