Q365: What will happen if I get stopped by a police officer for speeding?
If you get stopped by a police officer for speeding, depending on the speed at which you were travelling, you may either be given an endorsable fixed penalty ticket at the scene or a citation for court will be sent to you.
Either way, it is more than likely that you will have to produce your documents (driving licence, insurance and MOT) at a police station of your choice within 7 days (unless you have all the necessary documentation with you).
If you were travelling a certain set amount over the speed limit then you may get a citation to attend at court.
If you are a new driver and you get 6 points on your licence within the first two years then you will have your licence revoked and revert to learner status and you will have to apply again for a new provisional licence.
If you have held a full licence for more than two years and you get 12 or more points within a period of 3 years, you'll be disqualified under the Totting Up system, but at the end of the disqualification the points accrued in those three years will normally no longer count against you.
