Hi, In June of this year I was caught speeding on a dual carriageway

Resolved Question:

Hi, In June of this year I was caught speeding on a dual carriageway near Telford,England. I was doing in excess of 70mph - clocked and documented as doing 95mph.
This morning my wife rang me to say i had received a letter summoning me to magistrates court in January for the offense of driving in excess of 70mph. I have the option to please guilty by post which i am going to do, but what is the maximum penalty I will be facing ?
Some other information about myself, I have been on both the speed awareness course and dangerous driving courses offered by the AA and currently have 3 points on my license. I live in North Wales but drive to London each week for work; which has left me little worried about the possibility of a ban.
