Speeding Offences – Can I keep my licence?

In determining the penalty that applies to speeding offences, the court will have regard to the speed you were travelling and the road conditions at the time. If you are alleged to have travelled more than 25km per hour over the speed limit then the alleged speed falls into the category of “excessive speeding”. A conviction for excessive speeding will automatically result in a loss of licence, although the court also has a discretion to impose an additional period of licence suspension. If you have been charged with travelling more than 25km per hour over the speed limit you should seek legal advice as the penalties may be far more severe than the minimum penalty that the law requires.
