# Speeding fine calculator

## Calculate UK speeding fines

The minimum fine you can get for speeding in the UK is £100 and 3 penalty points on your licence on your licence, but the maximum fine is up to £2,500 depending on what type of road you were driving on.

The exact amount you'll pay for a fine depends on your annual income, what the speed limit was and how much faster than the limit you were driving. Rather than having to work that all out yourself, our speeding fine calculator can do the hard work for you.

## How much is a speeding fine?

The amount you're fined depends on your annual income, which band your speeding fine falls into and how much faster than the limit you were driving.

For example, based on an annual income of £25,000:

• If you were caught driving 40mph in a 30mph zone, you could be fined £360.58 (75% of your weekly income) and also have 3 points on your license
• If you were caught driving 41mph in a 30mph zone, you could be fined £600.96 (125% of your weekly income) and also have 4 - 6 points on your license
• If you were caught driving 51mph in a 30 mph zone, you could be fined £841.35 (175% of your weekly income) and also have 6 points on your license

The minimum speeding fine is £100 and 3 penalty points on your licence. Instead of taking 3 penalty points, you could be offered the chance to go on a speed awareness course.

For more serious offences, you could be fined up to 175% of your weekly income. And if you build up 12 or more penalty points within a period of 3 years you could be disqualified from driving.

## What is the maximum fine for speeding?

The maximum possible fine for speeding is £1,000 on normal roads, and £2,500 on motorways.

The figures shown in the table represent the typical fines for each band (A, B and C). Serious offences and mitigating circumstances could raise or lower the fine within that band.

## Can you check if you have been caught speeding?

No. There is no way to check if you’ve been caught speeding, you just have to wait to see if your speeding notice arrives in the post.

If you've been caught by a speed camera, you should be sent a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) and Section 172 notice in the post. You must return the Section 172 notice within 28 days, telling the police who was driving the car at the time.

If you've been stopped by the police, they will either have given you a verbal warning, given or sent you a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) or ordered you to go to court. If you're ordered to go to court, you'll be sent a letter telling you what to do.

If you have been caught speeding, you should receive your Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) and Section 172 notice within 14 days. But, this can depend on what kind of system caught you, and the police force handling the fine. The time of year could also have an impact.
