I am on a speed awareness course next week and just got another one in the post today for 57 in a 50.

Been flashed numerous times in the link though and never had anything come through.

I have a good feeling that you might be asked to go on a Speed Awareness Course if they get you. One is allowed +10% + 2-3 mph I am told over the limit. In your case, say, 36mph. So not that bad. Fingers crossed.

Feel for you.

Had a speed awareness course approx 4 years ago and they have offered me another one for next week for 38 in a 30.

John it is very likely you will be offered the Speed Awareness Course (about 3 hours of falling asleep), you will have to pay a fine of around 100 you will NOT get any points!!

You should be fine.
