What is the offence?
Driving without due care and attention?
Do you have the summons there?
On the face of it, you are describing a matter of driving without due care and attention. That carries six points and s fine.
If you get six points in your first two years of driving then your licence will be revoked although you are not banned. You just have to take your licence test again.
Can I clarify anything for you? Jo
Sorry for the delay.
If you had your licence for more than two years at the time of the offence then you will not be revoked.
The points will last 3 years for the purposes of totting, 4 years for the DVLA and 5 or 10 years for the purposes of most insurance companies.
70 mph in a 40 mph zone wouldn't normally lead to only 3 points.
But that is what you will get here.
Delighted to continue with this but please rate my answer.
Sorry but I'm afraid I am not able to continue then.
All the best.
If this is 90 mph in a 60 mph zone then you would be facing 4-6 points or a ban of between 7-28 days. The reality is that it is likely to be points unless there is an aggravating feature.
There will also be a fine of 125-175 % of your weekly income, costs of £85 and the surcharge.
