    You get 6 points and that's it in the first 2 years (licence lost and you need to retake your test) then it goes up to 12 after 2 years.

    I think if you can prove you need your car for your livelyhood etc then they may give you 6 points and a stern warning then that's it but I'm not sure.

    I thought a fixed penalty notice is the end of it? Pay the fine (£30 in first so many weeks then double after it) and then you won't hear anything else from them?

    A Fixed Penalty Notice for speeding (endorsable )is £60. There is no 'discount' for paying early. You have 28 days to pay, otherwise you get sent to court.

    Drivers who have held their licence less than two years have their licence revoked if they accumulate 6 points. (And remember, the points still stay valid for three years). A 'new' driver is highly unlikely to succeed with a 'hardship' defence

    Needing to get to work in the middle of the night won't be enough to convince them to let him keep his licence though - as unrealistic as it sounds, they could well argue that he could get a taxi.

    They can stop you just by measuring the distance between two markers (e.g. two road signs) and timing how fast you cover the distance between them, so it doesn't always have to be radar/laser equipment.
