What to expect if you've committed a speeding or red light offence

Share by emailShare by email

Information on what to do if you've been caught speeding or driving through a red light in Nottinghamshire.

How you will be notified of the offence

You will receive a Notice of Intended Prosecution after committing an offence. You will need to follow instructions on the notice, completing all relevant sections of the form and return it within 28 days.

If you were not the driver at the time of the offence or have any other questions about challenging the offence or contacting the driver of the vehicle at the time of the offence, please see our frequently asked questions on challenging speeding or red light offence.

What if I don't sign or ignore the Notice of Intended Prosecution?

Ignoring, failing to sign the notice or otherwise failing to provide details of the driver at the time of the offence is itself an offence that could lead to prosecution, placing six penalty points on your licence and a possible maximum fine of £1,000.

Our approach: Driver education courses

Nottinghamshire Police is part of the Nottinghamshire Safety Camera Partnership which educates drivers about the consequences of speeding and motoring offences and works to improve compliance with speed limits and traffic signals.

Speed awareness or 'What's driving us' courses

We give drivers the opportunity to attend a half-day ‘speed awareness’ or ‘what's driving us’ course as an alternative to prosecution after they have committed a speeding or red light offence.

The course is offered subject to eligibility, costs £92 and forms part of a national programme, meaning you can complete the course in another police force area if you do not live in Nottinghamshire.

If you complete the course successfully, you won't incur any points or further fines in relation to your offence.
