    New Driver - 2 Speeding tickets in a week! 4th Aug 18 at 1:12 AM
    Hi all,
    We're looking for some advice, my partner is a relatively new driver (under 1 year) and started a new job recently. She was unfamiliar with the route to work and got caught speeding 36 in a 30 twice on 2 different days all within the space of a week. She thought the road was a 40. The letters arrived within 2 days of each other and she's pretty distraught about it all and what may happen.

    Due to her being a new driver would she be offered an awareness course or would they simply hand her 6 points and revoke her license?

    Her car is on my insurance policy and she is marked as an additional driver to the car. will I need to inform my insurance company? If so would this effect my insurance as It was't my car and I wasn't driving?

    Not looking for any sympathy here, It was her fault and she's aware of that just looking for advice as to whats likely to happen.

    Excellent idea. I've never murdered anyone or robbed a bank: that must be worth a lot more than your driving record.
