Although speeding offences usually carry a three to six point endorsement, speeders can be banned at the discretion of the magistrates. It is therefore vital that you ensure you receive the right legal assistance to ensure that this does not happen to you as in many cases this can also lead to the loss of a job or other difficulties.
If you have committed a speeding offence and have been summonsed to court you can be banned from driving at the discretion of the magistrates. There is no limit to the ban which may be imposed but in practice the ban will tend to be for up to six months. Even if you have a clean driving licence you can be banned if there are aggravating circumstances, for example, if you were driving at a very high speed or causing danger to other road users.
If you have been charged with a speeding offence and you already have points or previous convictions for motoring offences, the chances of you receiving a ban are much higher.
If you have committed a speeding offence you are facing the possibility of a ban from driving. For many people driving is vital for their job, for others life without a car would become much more difficult or even impossible. Professional legal representation from a specialist speeding offences solicitor can be the difference between keeping your licence and losing it, or put more bluntly, between keeping your job or losing it.
