Hello do you use your car for work?
OK. How long have you been here please?
OK. Do they know accept that you only entered in Febuary?
Because you can only drive on a European licence for so long and but for the break in Febuary you would be in breach.
If you entered in February you are fine. Even if they don't accept it, if you can prove it then you are home and dry.
In terms of sentence, 88 mph in a 60 mph zone does carry a ban but it isn't likely. It would almost certainly just lead to 6 points. If they do ban then it will probably be about 14 days. It is not a long period of time but the fact of the ban does have a horrendous effect upon insurance.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You would have to disclose points too which would lead to an increase premium although not so bad.
What were the circumstances of this incident?
That is not the worst speeding then.
Generally speaking with speeding it is a case of expressing remorse and emphassing your hitherto good driving record.
You can also refer to the absence of any heavy traffic, the clarity of the conditions, the clemency of the weather and the shortness of any distance driven at speed.
For three years from the date of becoming a resident in the Uk which is usually defined as having lived here for 185 days.
Accumilatively it could be worse - if you received 6 points x 2 then you would be a totter.
But it would not be aggravated on the second occasion because of the first.
This is almost certainly a mistake though. It is not going to be 88mph on the nose on both occasions.
