If you are considering entering a not guilty plea for a speeding charge, please note that the above costs only relate to the first hearing and a 1-day trial. The above costs do not include expert fees or any of your travel costs.

If you have been caught speeding, you might have admitted you are guilty of a road traffic offence and be prepared to pay the fixed fee that comes with getting a speeding ticket. However, there is still a chance that your case might end up in court.

This could be the case if you have been driving dangerously or your have broken a lot of speed limits. If you plan to plead guilty, you might need legal representation for your speed offence cases.

Please note, even though legal aid exists, you might still have to pay for legal representation. This is because legal aid is very rarely granted for a driver who has been caught by a speed detection camera.

This means you might still have to pay the court costs, even though it is your intention to enter a guilty plea.
