I was caught speeding 75 mph in in 50 mph zone, it’s my first time offence and I just received a letter within 14 day period asking me to identify the driver

I’m a new driver and it’s only been just over a year and it’s my first ever offence, I ave read a lot of articles online and I reckon I will be banned as the offence is worth 6 points under the April 2017 guidelines

Can anyone tell me what will happen next once I identify the driver and am I really looking at a ban because I work quite far from home for work and if loose my job because I’m unable to get there I won’t be able to help my family out with bills or help drop them off at school and university etc...

I know what I did and it’s stupid, there was something wrong with my car injector and I had it fixed at the garage, once it was fixed I drove it and realised the engine was shaking. I rang the garage up and he told me to take it on the motorway and put my foot down abit and it should fix itself as there was some dirt in there somewhere. I thought I could fix it and drove around 70-80 mph on a clear road and just around the corner the speed van was waiting on the a500. You probably won’t believe it but I was stupid enough to do something like this. If I’m getting banned I might go to court and plead guilty asking for my circumstances to be taken into account for reduced sentence.

It appears you don’t need any further advice. You know that what you’re intending to do is potentially dishonest. You don’t seem to need us to tell you.

The police offered me a fixed penalty for doing 75 in 50 zone

They sent me a form and just want to make sure I send it back correctly

It’s says per the £100 fine first, I paid it and filled out the information on the letter, do I just send my DL or do I need to send photos of myself too

Also is there anything else apart from that

Related to this case I presume?

forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showtopic=118070&hl=

We have a one case / one thread rule. Hopefully a moderator will merge them.

You do what it tells you to do, which will be to pay the penalty and send in your driving licence.

Why you think you need to send photos is beyond me.

Do just what they tell you to do, no more and no less. There is no reason they would want photos.

The OP says "I’m a new driver and it’s only been just over a year".

I know but I was trying to work out why the OP might have thought photos might be required, but has been pointed out they are a new driver and would have a photo licence anyway.

It says step 2 surrendering your DL

Send your most recently issued photo card and this form to the address below

Sorry I thought photo card was something different, looking at the comments it’s most likely driving licence
