I was caught on the A9 Perth to Inverness road at 103 mph. I was 2 days short of having my license for 2 yrs. I went to court today and got a 28 day ban and £250.00 fine. The best news is because it was a straight ban once it is up I can drive again and there is no need for a test resit. If I had been given 6 points I would have had to re-apply for my provisional and resit the test. I am v happy with this result and the lawyer only cost £150.00 + vat.
That sounds like you did well!
it is a strange situation that u can speed at 103mph. serious enough to go to court over (speed limit +30mph) but if you had only been doing speed limit + 10mph you would have got the 3 points and had to resit your test, Yet another example of what is wrong with the RTA.

Can you tell us which lawyer you used?
The lawyer was David Hingston. The website is
biggrin.gif Check out the Profile page - he's almost doing a thumbs up! :-)

Maybe it's worth building a list of recommended lawyers (and maybe whether their cheap or pricey) across the UK?
Think A New Sticky shold be made on the main page Recomended Solicitors. and a format of Heading area and name under. eg

Subject = Newcastle
Extra info = Solicitor name

Content a short description and address contact info etc.

It seems that he's the former Procurator Fiscal who has been advising Robbie the Pict.
