Got a Speeding Ticket? Is Everything Okay once the Fine is Paid?

Normal speeding fines usually come with a fine, which can be resolved by paying it on time. However, in some cases, speeding may require you to go to court, or even have a criminal record!

Under what circumstances will you be automatically convicted of speeding?

In Victoria, certain serious offenses, such as severe speeding (exceeding the speed limit by 25 kilometers per hour or driving at 130 kilometers per hour or above), will trigger an “automatic conviction” procedure, which will directly result in a criminal record, which may affect your employment, immigration, or even professional license applications.
