I was caught doing 47 in a 20. Stupid I know, I have no excuses.
The conditions described by the officer where excellent visibility and dry, it was committed on a road which is a 20mph limit(I thought was a 30) but the houses are set back from the road on one side and the other side is the back of a golf course which has a 8ft wall.

I am due to appear in the magistrates and I have obtained a motoring specialist lawyer, which tbh I have not been very happy with as I do not feel in the loop about what is going on with my case.

I will be pleading guilty (I have already done so online) I already have 3 points which expire this year, In a nutshell I was wondering if anyone else has been in a similar situation and what was the outcome?
I have been on a 2 year apprenticeship in which I have only just passed and been given a salary I thought I would never get, I require my licence for work as I do alot of driving (30000 miles a year) and I am really stressed and loosing sleep over the fact I am going to get a ban and lose my job which means everything to me. Could anyone give me a percentage chance of me keeping my licence due to their experience?

Thanks for your advice, unfortunately I work for a very specialised engineering regulstor and would have to retrain for any other job and the knowledge isnt very transferable.
This is why your employer is likely to be more forgiving, the 2 years training you will have cost money and I doubt they would want to just throw that all away to start again with someone else.


Exactly, the thing is to talk to your employer, it may well be that its fleet management policy will not routinely cover recently disqualified drivers, but may do so by arrangement and for an additional premium, which you could offer to have your salary reduced by if necessary. If that does not work, use a car of your own insured by you for a period; certainly it will be a hefty premium but being on a newly enhanced salary you might be able to afford it.

OP, when did you pass your test? More than 2 years ago?

I'm not a lawyer or legally trained, my opinion is based on my experience - follow at your own risk.

Hi, I have had my driving licence for 8/9 years.
