If you are caught far in excess of the speed limit there is a high risk of an immediate disqualification from driving based on the recorded speed. Frustratingly, different Courts around the country have different local practices. A good rule of thumb however is if you are more than 40% over the speed limit, you are at risk of an immediate disqualification.
The length of the ban is again at the Court’s discretion, but will range from 7 to 90 days depending on the exact circumstances of your case, your personal situation and the quality of the mitigation raised by you or your Barrister.
