Doubt it, I had a £200 fine and 6 points just before I started RMAS and no-one gave a toss.

You could tell the beak that you are joining the Monkeys and that you were "familiarising" with your car before you joined up. Works for every fcuking peeler that gets away with it

In this era of the speed camera cash point for the blairist government most drivers have points on their licence (apart from me). ( but thats cos I haven't got my latest NIP in the post yet)

So I wouldn't worry about it matey..

No because its not a criminal offence. its a traffic offence and you would have no dramas with civ plod so mil plod would be no different.

Should invest in a Snooper bud!

Don't reckon it'll help your entrance into the RMP but give them a shout. It would cause more of a problem if you were entering the RAC or RLC etc because you need your license in order to complete phase 2 training. Best thing to do is phone the Career's office (anonymously) and ask them their opinion.

Hope all goes well.

I think your be ok.

you should be looking at one years ban ( i think ), but i dont think the army are in the position to turn down potential recruits just for not having a driving chit.

A one years ban ? I doubt it, unless you mowed down a flock of nuns while you did it ! I got caught at 104mph on the M69 in 2000 - 600 quid fine and 6 points. No ban.

Must be luck of the draw with Magistrates, virtually uaranteed a ban over 100mph up North

110 over double whites equalled a 28 day ban and 350 quid fine in sunny Devon, strangely no points!! Wear a suit to court and hope the madge has forces history.......Always take the advice/services of the duty solicitor in the court room, remember to tell the Madge how hard your CO is going to ream your arrse for this, seems to help.

Hi chaps,

Bit of a long story, but I was caught speeding by a mobile camera van on the motorway.

It was so f**king stupid for me to go that fast...but it was my fault and I have no excuses.

Anyway, I'm likely to get some kind of ban and points on my licence. I'm due to start basic in March after selection in Feb, will this affect my entry for RMP?

Cheers :cry:
What were you driving/riding?

Shouldn´t affect you but the RLC may want to claim you as no army vehicle can go that fats without falling apart....

You might be lucky.

Instant ban from driving in Wiltshire. And our CO pushes for removal from the wonderful larger company that is our employer!!!!!

118MPH = 14 Day ban, £300 Fine and and no points from the North Avon bench........... Bike hating yuppies!
 
#18
105mph in a 70 limit, 5 points and £300 (reduced by 50 notes as I admited I was as guilty as a puppy next to a pile of warm poo straight away by post).
Horses for courses as they say.

Depends on the mood of the magistrate.

Top tip though; dress in a smart suit, be very apologetic (not too arrse licky though), and dont try and bullshit them. They are used to seeing chavs in shell suits who dont give a feck so old fashioned respect and manners do count...most times.

No such thing as an instant ban mate. What are they going to do, take away your licence on the hard shoulder ? A ban is *never* mandatory, even for the most serious of motoring offences. Although the Magistrates will have a scale of offences that they would normally consider worthy of a ban, they will always consider every case before awarding one. If you were the only person who could take your busload of elderly relatives to various hospitals for lifesaving kidney dialysis (for example), then you would have a much better chance of escaping a ban for an offence that would see Flash's shell suited chav off of the road for six months.
