Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I appear to be having issues with my phone are we able to continue with the chat im currently working away from home so don't have access to another phone
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

Sure. Ok - 74mph in a 60mph zone if it went to Court you would get, if pleaded guilty, a fine and 3 points.

You wont get any more than this at the sentencing guidelines say 61-80mph is 3 points.

So you wont get put back down to provisional.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

would this be likely to go to court ?
this is the first time ive had contact with the police to , so has worried me as being a young driver already incurs higher insurance etc
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

It may not do, they might offer you speed awareness although I suspect you were going too fast for that.

You may get higher insurance but you are usually allowed 1 speeding ticket.

is it more likely to go to court ?, looking at the bigger picture youd expect a fine and 3 points
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

Fine and 3 points. It may go to Court yes because of the speed.
