How much is a speeding fine?

The answer to the question that most people want to know - how much does a speeding toicket cost? depends on a number of factors. These include the speed limit of the road and the speed of the vehicle. Speeding fine costs vary but the minimum cost for a speeding ticket is a £100 fine and 3 penalty points.


For less severe offences your speeding fine will probably be £100. This would be for instance if you were going at 35mph in a 30mph zone. However, for more extreme cases such as going 65mph in a 30 mph zone you will expect a much stiffer fine.

More minor infringements (such as 35 in a 30 zone) are likely to result in you being offered a speed awareness course. The cost of a speeding awareness course is usually around £100 so it is comparable to a fine and means you don't get any points on your licence.


You can check out our speeding fine calculator to give you a guide as to how much your speeding ticket is likely to cost. Lesser offences involve a fixed penalty notice of £100, but more serious offences will involve a court summons. When you get this you will be able to either plead guilty by post or if you want to contest the case then you will need to appear in court. It is advisable to engage a speeding lawyer to help you if this is the case.

You can visit our speed fines page to see whether it is likely that your case will be dealt with by fixed penalty notice (FPN) or by court summons.
