SP50 - Exceeding speed limit on a motorway
You must not exceed the speed limit for the type of road and for your type of vehicle. On a motorway, the limit is 70mph for cars and for most other vehicles and 60mph for cars towing caravans as well as for goods vehicles over 7.5 tonnes.
SP50 is the DVLA offence code if you get accused speeding on a motorway and for this you will receive 3-6 penalty points, although you could also be subject to a discretionary ban depending on how high the speed was. See our page on speeding offences if you want more general information.
