Home » Speeding


Speeding is our most common offence that we deal with. Particularly when our clients are about to breach the 12 points 'totting-up' threshold. Our fully developed hardship arguments are often successful given our intensive preparation for cases. This can be clarified in our initial CFC stage 1 telephonic advice call. So, don't delay.

How we can help


  • Financial penalty
  • 3 – 6 penalty points or a disqualification from driving
How we can help you…

We are frequently instructed by clients regarding speeding allegations. Often clients will want to know whether the case they are facing has been undertaken in a procedurally correct way, perhaps there is a ‘loophole’ or ‘technicality’. Our team has vast experience and success in reviewing the case to see if there are any technicalities.

Defence cases include:
  • Notice of intended prosecution (NIP) not sent within 14 days
  • Necessary information not filed with the court in time
  • Material inaccuracies
  • Speed camera/detection device used in an incorrect way
  • Speed limit not identifiable
  • Opinion of only one uncorroborated witness

We might also consider special reasons for driving at excess speed.

If you are within 2 years of passing your driving test, your driving licence may be revoked if you build up 6 or more penalty points. Our M23Law team have a proven record of applying to the court for a short disqualification and avoiding a retest.

Speeding & Failing to provide information of the driver

  • £1,000 fine
  • 6 penalty points or disqualification from driving

Failing to provide the information of the driver is an offence contrary to section 172(2) of the Road Traffic Act 1988. Where a driver of a vehicle is alleged to be guilty of an offence, the person keeping the vehicle shall give such information as to the identity of the driver as he may be required to give. And any other person shall, if required as stated above, give any information which is in his power to give and may lead to the identification of the driver.

Defence cases include:
  • No notice was received; evidence of postal interruptions/difficulties, access difficulties to your address, mail theft
  • Response was sent but not received by the police
  • Notice forwarded to wrong keeper of the vehicle

Issues often arise where a Section 172 is sent to a company, with a fleet of vehicles and many drivers. This is one of our busiest areas of work and we are often contacted by small, medium or large companies to advise and assist.
