Do you have any other points?
When did you take your test?
This is a speed just over the limit for a fixed penalty fine although they may well give you one anyway.
If they do not and they do summons to court then it would attract either 4-5 points. The guidelines do provide for much more but it is not appropriate here really.
You are not a new driver so this would not lead to a revocation of your licence.
There is a risk of 6 points and so disqualification under the totting provision but it is not likely here.
There would be costs of £85, the surcharge of roughly 10% of any fine and a fine of between 100-150% of your weekly income.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Not really. It is not really a mitigating factor I'm afraid.
In fact, one could argue it is aggravating as it increases the risk to other road users that you were distracted.
You are perfectly free to put them to proof but the risk is costs which could be a nasty shock if you lose Im afraid.
