is there way to check if i got speeding fine/points?

Posted 8th Oct 2015
in the morning I was travelling at approx 71mph and noticed a flash and am not sure if it was for me or someone else (it was on either on m6 or m65 so it was national speed). and then on the way back i was travelling at 70mph but got distracted and saw that my speed had gone to 75mph and there was a flash just after i went past the bridge (where the cameras were located (m6) ).

so is there a way to check if i will get speeding fine and points?

Can I check If I have been caught speeding?

Currently there is no way to check a speeding fine immediately after you think you have been caught by a camera or mobile device. Be aware of scam/joke sites offering this service.

How long does it take to receive a speeding fine?

If you have been caught by a speeding camera or other mobile device then a notice of prosecution (NIP) must be delivered to the address of the registered keeper of the car within 14 days of the offence. If you are pulled over by the police for speeding then the NIP will be delivered to you there and then.

How much does a speeding ticket cost?

The MINIMUM penalty for speeding is a £100 fine and 3 penalty points added to your licence. The MAXIMUM fine, if caught speeding on a motorway, is £2500. If it is your first offence, you could be offered the opportunity to attend a speed awareness course which will stop any points being added to your licence. You also could be banned from driving if you build up 12 or more speeding points on your licence within 3 years.

Is there a way to check the endorsements on my driving licence?

You can check the endorsements on your driving licence by clicking on the government website here.

How long do speeding points stay on my licence for?

Speeding points will stay on your licence for 4 years from the date of the offence. However they will be ‘valid’ for only 3 years. This means insurance companies should not take these points into account once your conviction is considered ‘spent’.
