You can use this handy calculator to see what the magistrates' guidelines indicate for any particular speed. Note that these are guidelines, and are not binding on the magistrates.More details are available on our Magistrates' Guidelines page.

The calculator has been updated in line with the July 2008 update to the Sentencing Guidelines Council sentencing guidelines for Magistrates' Courts. It can also now calculate the range of fines recommended for first time offenders, based on your weekly income, and assuming there are no aggravating or mitigating factors. You can embed the calculator into your own post using the 'magspeed' BBCode tag:

It hasn't been updated for the recently amended sentencing guidelines.

In 50mph zone on motorway, if i was doing 67mph, will this get me 4 points or it is absolute judge's discretion to give whatever points he likes?

I mean there must be some sort of sentencing guideline.

Yes there is. For speeds of 66-75mph in a 50mph limit the guideline is a fine of a week's net income and either a ban of 7 to 28 days or 4 to 6 points.

If you were sentenced by a court for doing 67 in a 50 limit (regardless of whether it was on a motorway or not) and there were no significant aggravating or mitigating circumstances you would almost certainly receive four points (although a short ban may be considered). Magistrates and District Judges (Magistrates’ Courts) are bound to follow the guidelines unless there is a reason not to do so (which must be given in open court when the sentence is handed down).

However, the offence would normally be dealt with by way of a fixed penalty (£100 and three points). The only time such an offence would be dealt with in court would be if the driver declined (or failed to accept) the fixed penalty or if he already had nine or more active points. He would then be called to court as he would be liable to disqualification under the “totting up” rules.
