Do you think I will get Conditional Offer of a Fixed Penalty (COFP) ? if so what do you think it will be 3 point? 6 points? other...

If you complete the NIP in the allotted time you will receive a letter with a Conditional Offer. This means you will be offered the chance of paying a £60 fine and your licence will be endorsed with 3 penalty points. This can be done by post. You are required to send the fine and your driving licence, with its counterpart, to the Fixed Penalty Clerk at Brighton Law Courts.
Your licence will be endorsed with three penalty points and returned within a few days.

You may wish to contest the allegation at court, which is your right. However, if magistrates find you guilty you may have to pay court costs of several hundred pounds plus up to the maximum penalty of £1000 and 6 penalty points.

If your licence already has 9 points, and/or your speed was excessive, you will be dealt with directly by the Magistrates' Court and you will not receive a Conditional Offer.


What do the class as "Excessive Speed"

Thanks

Fixed penalties are not ordinarily issued for speeds of 20mph or more in excess of a 30mph speed limit or 26mph or more in excess of 40, 50, 60 & 70mph limits.
