The New Speeding Fines 2017

From today, there will be a much harsher punishment if you get caught speeding. 

You could be fined 150% of your weekly earnings!

As from 24th April 2017 the new speeding laws will change giving drivers a more stern penalty.

As driving instructors we always teach our learner drivers the consequences of speeding and not only will a speeding fine burn a hole in your pocket but how speeding can injure or even kill. Also if on your practical driving test the driving examiner see’s you speeding the test will ultimately result in a fail and you’ll have to sit the driving test again!

We hope these new speeding penalties will help improve our roads, but if you do get caught speeding then here are the fines you could be faced with;
