Got pulled over by a marked bmw traffic police responder today. They showed me a speed gun which said I was going 101 mph in a 70mph speed limit zone. I didn’t disagree nor agree to speeding, however I am aware that I was going over the limit. I have no previous penalty points or driving convictions, however I haven’t held my full license for more then two years. What is the likelihood of me losing my license?

At that speed, if found guilty, it's almost a certainty.

The guidelines are for either six points or a short disqualification.

Six points would see your licence revoked under the Road Traffic (New Drivers) Act 1995. You can re-apply and take your tests again quite quickly.

Any disqualification would be for 7-56 days. 101 is at the lower end of the range.

Either way, there will be a serious effect on your insurance premiums in future.

I would say 6 points and a revocation are a racing certainty.

There’s specific guidance that a short ban shouldn’t be used to avoid the intention of the New Drivers Act.

You’ll eventually receive (they have 6 months to commence proceedings) a postal plea. If you want to try and avoid the revocation then you’ll have to ask for the matter to be heard at court. Some areas are ‘fast tracking’ cases at the moment so you might here quite soon.

The fine will be 1 weeks earnings, costs of £85 and a surcharge of 10% of the fine (min £32).

The revocation is an administrative process by the DVLA so you can continue driving until they write to you. It’s a revocation and not a ban as such - so you can take a test to get it back.

Check your insurance requirements on notification but as noted you’ll find your premium will rocket and some insurers may well decline to cover.

What country was this in?

It was in the UK. I’m aware of my actions and take full accountability for what I have done. I am planning to get in contact with a lawyer to assist me to submit exceptional hardship so that I can hopefully either be given less penalty points or given a temporary driving ban so my license doesn’t get revoked.

Exceptional hardship relates to totting bans, not the implications for single offences, so is completely irrelevant to what you face.

I’d save your money to be honest, by all means present an argument to try and avoid the revocation but personally I think investing in a solicitor would be throwing good money after bad.

Agreed.

Sorry to be harsh but the court will have in mind that the New Drivers' legislation was designed exactly with offenders such as you in mind. Less than two years driving but doing 100 plus. Their guidelines are quite clear - six points or a disqualification. As mentioned they also have guidance that suggests that where there is such a choice between points and a ban and points would lead to either revocation or "totting up", then points should be imposed. It is very unlikely that you will be awarded fewer than six points. You would have to have been recorded at well under 100 - probably 96 or lower - for that to be a consideration.

A lawyer may suggest you have a good chance of success with their help. Before you part with your cash, bear in mind they get paid whether you are successful or not. There really isn't much they can say that will get you out of this and if I were you I would save my money to put towards a few taxis if necessary and your next test.

He meant Scotland or England. The approach to 100+ differs between them

Speeding tickets, like lottery tickets, are a voluntary tax. You don't have to get them.

The use of an unfamiliar term (traffic police responder) and the American spelling of licence gave me cause to doubt whether the OP was caught in the UK.
