How long do the garda have to post out a speeding fine. I was pulled over 4 wks ago and have received nothing in the post so far

Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.

1. The Gardaí have up to six months to issue a Summons for speeding. So whilst a fixed penalty notice would issue in a short period of weeks, if you are going to be Summonsed and taken to court the period involved in longer, being six months. So, you will probably still get some notification in the post if you got pulled over for an alleged speeding offence.

Thank you . Why would I be summonsed and taken to court. The garda just said it was a fine and 3 penality points.

3. If the matter is being dealt with by just a fine and 3 penalty points, then the Gardaí have 56 days within which to send out the notice to you. The reason I mentioned getting Summonsed is that in your question, you made no mention of the seriousness of the offence. Now that you have, a more accurate answer can be given.
