Hi All, Well, I am an idiot; let me just state that off the bat; There are no excuses for speeding, I know that. I got caught doing 96 in an 80 zone in my local national park last saturday afternoon as i went for a quick hour long cruise to take advantage of what has been a RARE dry weekend day ... Anyways, im overtaking; whilst coming back into my lane a police car is going the other way, registers me doing 96, turns around and pulls me over. He's nice enough to give me a $79 fine for 0-15 ...and not go to the next bracket; I have been on my P's for about 4 months. I have been driving for over 10 years without one single speeding offense - TEN YEARS, NO SPEEDING ... and i get done on my bike... very frustrating!! Anyways; My questions; - Am i part of this new NSW RTA Law that carries an automatic 3 month suspension for speeding fines for all 'restricted' drivers / riders ??? Even though i had my P's well before July 1st 2007??? - The police man said given my exemplary driving record, he recommended paying the fine and writing a letter to try and have the suspension lifted... But where do I write the letter to ??? Looking forward to hearing from you all, with your thoughts; I just don't want to have to look at my bike for 3 months Thanks guys and gals Paul  I have read the NSW RTA website and its very non-specific and not too helpful. If I am suspended for 3 months as an example....does that count towards my 12 that I need to be on my P's for...or does it effectivley make it a 15 month stint ?
