      For speeding they have to notify you within 14 days, so if you don't hear within that time frame you can get it overturned. I had a TT99 many moons ago and the woman up before the judge before me used this to get off scot free!

        Two things:

        1 Your speedo probably over-reads by 5%

        2 The allowance before prosecution is 10% + 2 mph. So in a 40 limit youíre ok up to 46 mph.

        So sounds like you should be fine. Unless it flashed...!

          According to the bloke who did the tutorial on the speed course I had to sit last December that 10% theory is bollocks.

            10% + 2mph is true in West and North Yorkshire, it said on the letters I've received.

              Of course the bloke on the ďStop SpeedingĒ course is going to tell you how to break the law, isnít he?

              Itís an unwritten and generally accepted practice to take account of (eg) the inaccuracies of speedos (as they used to be) and remove reasonable doubt.

                It is bollocks (as confirmed on the course I attended).
                I had to do a course (or rather chose to in order to avoid points and a fine) for clocking 55 in a 50.

                  You mean the ticket said you were doing 55. You donít actually know either what speed you were doing or what speed your speedometer said, do you?

                    Yes you are right of course (I guess that's what you wanted to hear).
                    I was probably really doing 20.

                      Long been runoured (and subsequently accepted as fact) to be ACPO Guideline. However, as the man says, understandably denied by every copper who I've known to comment.

                      Unless people are going to post pictures of their NIPs (no), I'm not taking as gospel any of this "I got done for x mph in a y limit". There are some weird people on here who'll lie to 'win' an argument.

                      Having said that, in France I have been done a number of times for a shade over the speed limit. I think 92 in a 90 was the closest, not even +2.5%. But that's because they deduct 5% (or something) from the speed at which you were actually clocked to account for measurement inaccuracies. I don't know either way but there's every chance they do the same here, now. So, maybe your 55 started out as 58, for example.

                      Certainly the denials of the 10% + 2 have been a lot more unequivocal in recent years, many citing a 'change'.

                        I got caught doing 33 in a 30. Because it was my first time, my only option of avoiding 3 Points was to pay £120 and go on that Drivers Awareness Course. Annoyingly, instead of sending me up the Road. I ended up going over to bloody Wareham. A whole day wasted mate! 🤬

                            Apart from Cornwall I think, the rest are all linked now - so should be one fee (about £90 I think) and you can do it at any venue that has space

                                Yeah mate, it used to be stupid. As people were getting sent to the Region in which they were caught speeding in. It wouldn't work now with these strict Lockdown Rules. 😬

                          You should be OK with that - but depends whereabouts.

                          Hampshire cameras for example are all set at 34mph apparently. So I was told on a speed awareness course. After being done for doing 33! Some police authorities allow zero tolerance though. But think most allow up to 10%

                            i drive a honda and my speedo indicates 2mph above the speed indicator signs on the roadside. so if the speedo on your car is also set up to indicate a higher speed than you are actually going, you should be OK, also there is I believe a tolerance on the speed before a fine is issued.

                              Those roadside cameras are useless, the one outside Halyards always showed lower than my speedo, and the one in Brimingham Road near the Wauluds Bank roundabout showed higher.

                                Not long ago took a course. They will send you paperwork asking what you want to do,if you choose a course there is a list of phone numbers,phone your nearest one, tell them you want to do an online course ,they will give you a date and time.
                                You will need to download an app called Microsoft teams and you do it with a few other people and you do it in the comfort of your own home. The cost of the course is £90 but itís better than a fine and points. Hope this helps.

                                  a fair point as there could always be a calibration issue, I used to pass one at the airport round the back by the hangars every day, that one always indicated 2mph below the indicated speed on my speedo. I now on a weekly basis pass one on the road from Woburn to Husborne Crawley and that also indicates 2mph below the speed indicated on my car speedo, it is the same car.

                                  both of our vehicles indicate a higher speed on the dials than that indicated on the sat nav. Are either accurate?

                                    There is no tolerance. Over is over, however your speedo may be give a slightly higher speed than you actually go

                                      Been on two speed awareness courses, so I'm obviously aware of speed.

                                      36 in a 30
                                      58 in a 50

                                      On both occasions no traffic, not built up areas, no danger to anyone. But that's life.

                                        It changed from 30 to 40, as i moved up the dial, i saw the camera van and made sure i had remained on the 40 but noticed i had just slightly slipped the wrong side of 40.

                                          If you had an indicated 42 on your speedo, you were probably doing 39-40 in reality.

                                          I got my motocross bike road legal recently, and downloaded a GPS based speedo on my phone for it. When I used it in the car to see how it compared, the car was always showing higher than the GPS reading. Pretty sure the car manufacturers always ensure that their speedos over read slightly anyway, as an arse covering exercise.
