    Default Speeding Codes?

    Was caught driving the works crafter in september doing 64 when I should have been doing 50, resulting in 3 points and £60.

    I got SP30 - exceeding statutory speed limit. Thing is, I was driving a good vehicle so should it have been SP20 - exceeding statutory speed limit in a goods vehicle.

    Is there a technicality there??!!

    Presuming that you got a ticket in September, did not contest it in court and took the points on your licence.

    This being the case, technicality or not I don't think that there's anything you can do at this stage

    Stick with the sp30, you never know, the fine might be more if it was an sp20....let sleeping dogs lay.

    I think you have your definitions slightly wrong here are the ones off the DVLA website:

    SP10 Exceeding Goods vehicle speed limit
    SP20 Exceeding speed limit for type of vehicle (excluding goods or passenger vehicle)
    SP30 Exceeding statutory speed limit on a public road
    SP40 Exceeding passenger vehicle speed limit
    SP50 Exceeding speed limit on a motorway

    It would seem SP30 is just as valid as SP10 and SP30 is the road limit no a vehicle type

    Also SP10 may apply to vehicles where a speed limit is indicated on the rear of the vehicle
