UK Speeding Fine Bands In 2018

Over 100,000 speeding offences are prosecuted each year in the UK, with annual takings from fines topping up the HM Treasury coffers with millions of pounds. In the process, the most dangerous drivers are removed from public roads with driving bans of varying length depending on the severity of their offence.

 The increase in fines for the worst offenders came just after the government doubled fines and points for mobile phone usage at the wheel, with punishment for the offence now amounting to £200 and six points for anyone caught breaking the law.

Fine ceilings for speeding were previously £1000, or £2500 if caught on a motorway. The higher motorway cap remains, however law enforcement have been instructed to hand out a greater number of the maximum-level fines. Details of the various speeding bands are displayed in the table below.
