New drivers, committing a first time offence can still benefit from a speed awareness course which would stop the points being applied to their licence.

A new three-band system will determine how much a driver should be charged and how many points they will receive.

Band A offences are for drivers travelling between one and 10mph over the stated speed limit.

Band B offences relate to drivers exceeding the speed limits by between 11 and 20mph.

Band C offences correspond to offence which are 21mph and above the stated speed limit.

Drivers can receive three penalty points for a band A offence, between four and six for a band B and six points for a band C charge.

The band system also relates to a percentage charge range of their weekly wage.

Band A offence charges begin at 50 per cent of your weekly wage but can range from 25per cent to 75 per cent.

Band B offences begin at 100 per cent of your wage but are variable from 75 per cent and 125 per cent.

Band C offences begin at 150 per cent but are variable from 125 per cent to 175 per cent.
