How Many Points For Speeding?
If you're wondering how many points you'll get for speeding then this speeding points / fine calculator can be used to see what the Magistrates' Court sentencing guidelines for speeding recommends for alleged speed offence.
This is for use when you have received a court summons for speeding and not when you have received a fixed penalty (unless you wish to contest the penalty at court).
The calculator does not calculate any aggravating factors which may negatively influence the overall sentence. Of course there are also mitigating factors that may positively affect a sentence. These can be put forward by a motoring solicitor during a court appearance. Possible factors that can be used in court are listed below.
|Aggravating Factors||High Aggravating Factors||Mitigating Factors|
|There was poor road or weather conditions||Your location e.g. you where near school||There was a genuine emergency|
|The offence took place in a LGV, HGV, PSV etc.||The was a high level of traffic or pedestrians in the vicinity|
|You were Towing caravan/trailer at the time|
|You were carrying passengers or had a heavy load|
|You were driving for hire or reward|
|There is evidence of unacceptable standard of driving over and above speed|
