If you’ve been caught breaking the speed limit, see how much it’s likely to cost using our speeding fine calculator.
This calculator will help you to understand how much you’re likely to pay, even before you’ve received your notice of intended prosecution.
The figures displayed here are the standard fine rates for each band. Depending on the severity of the offence and any mitigating circumstances, your fine could be different. The maximum possible fine for speeding is £1,000 (£2,500 if on a motorway).

If your case does end up in court it will make sense to have representation.
The recent changes in speeding offences means the fine you’re likely to receive will now be based on your weekly wage.
For example, if you were caught travelling 1 mph to 10 mph over the speed limit your fine can be as much as 25% to 75% of your weekly wage. You may also receive 3 points on your driving licence.
If you were caught travelling 11 mph to 20 mph over the speed limit your fine can be as much as 75% to 125% of your weekly wage. You may also receive 4 to 6 points on your driving licence. Alternatively, you may also receive 7 to 28 days’ disqualification.
If you were caught travelling more than 21 mph over the speed limit your fine can be as much as 125% to 175% of your weekly wage. You may also receive 6 to 12 points on your driving licence. Alternatively, you may also receive 7 to 56 days’ disqualification or a driving ban.
Your fine will be calculated depending on how fast you were driving over the speed limit and the circumstances surrounding the offence. Your weekly income will also affect how much your fine is going to be.
Depending on the severity of your driving you may be given the option to attend a speed awareness course. A course such as this will ensure that points are not added to your licence but you will still have to pay a £100 fine. This could be an option for those who live in England and Wales, however, Scotland has a different sentencing guideline.
You may be disqualified from driving if your case is sent to a court. Magistrates only tend to issue a driving ban if you were caught travelling more than 45% over the speed limit. Whether you decide to plead guilty to the offence or you wish to deny it you may need to seek legal advice.
Your car insurance are likely to rise if you have been caught speeding. This is because the insurance company will deem that you’re more at risk of a crash. If you get flashed by speed cameras you can expect to pay more for your insurance over the next few years.
