‘IF’ you get your license ‘revoked’ for getting 6 or more points within your first two years you dont get banned,you just loose entitlement and have to retake your test which as far as i’m aware there is no time frame for this.
as for the speeding did you notice and fixed cameras /van or plod with speed gun? :pinch: and was there any photo evidence with the summons?
i got done by a scamera van before a fixed camera on what i presumed was a 40 limit as no street lights and out of town,36 in a 30 was my speed and i got offered a speed awareness course.could’nt afford it either and dragged out the booking time untill i had no choice but accept the fine of £60…by then i had the spare cash
good luck fella and worse case you’ll have to re take your test…which you plan to do ‘A2’ anyway so if you do get it revoked sell the dt book your test and start from scratch,might have a cheap cb500 to sell you when your ready:Whistling:
Because you were caught in two locations in such a short space of time, it is not uncommon for the CPS not to offer you a fixed pernalty and 3 points for each offence, but to issue summons for a court appearance instead.
This can work to your benefit as it is then actually dealt with as 1 case.
I helped a guy out last week in a similar situation, went to court and got fined £100 and 4 points on his licence rather than the usual £120 and 6 points because the two offences were lumped together.
So, you may be better off asking the question once you know what penalty or alternatives you have available to you.
When I did the speed awareness course for 46 in a 40 it was about £85. It’s well worth it over taking the points as points influnece your insurance.
When visiting one of my clients offices he had the actual picture of him getting done by the gatso on his wall. He said the first stage of trying to get off the fine is to contact them saying, “I don’t recall being there at the time can you send me the photographic evidence.” There is a chance (all be it slim) that they don’t have the photograph. That might be worth trying first.
What is your credit rating like? There are lots of credit cards that are zero interst in the first year as I understand. I’m not advocating getting into credit card debt but it would get you out of a tight spot. In a years time if you still don’t have the cash you can open another zero interst credit card and transfer the balance. I knew a few people at uni that did that for 3 years running.
