What was the speed limit?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.

The simple is that he could lose his licence.

If the speed limit was 70mph and he was doing 100mph then the guidelines say either 4-6 points or a ban of between 7 - 28 days.

Obviously they are not likely to ban him outright. If they do then he would not have to take his test again but it would have a horrendous impact on his insurance. Thats not likely to happen.

The risk is that they will add 6 points and if they do then he is revoked because he is a new driver. There is no way around that. Exceptional hardship is not a consideration.

The only way to avoid revocation is to convince them that this is not deserving of 6 points. It is at the higher end of the scale for speeding but there aren't any other significant aggravations that you mention here.

I'm very sorry but I have to give you truthful information.

Can I clarify anything for you?

ok thats fine hit his pocket he might learn or mother here says he better

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.

Its a difficult situation because people regularly do 100 mph on a motorway and I suppose they must put pressure on other drivers to speed so it falls very unfairly upon new drivers.
