Basic Penalties for Speeding in Sydney

Speeding isn't a trivial matter in Sydney. It's met with stringent penalties to discourage reckless driving and maintain road safety. The basic penalties for speeding vary based on the extent to which the speed limit was exceeded. Here's a breakdown of 10 basic penalties and their respective charges:

  • Speeding up to 10 km/h over the limit: Fine of $200

  • 11-20 km/h over the limit: Fine of $300

  • 21-30 km/h over the limit: Fine of $400

  • 31-40 km/h over the limit: Fine of $500

  • 41-50 km/h over the limit: Fine of $2,200

  • 51-60 km/h over the limit: Fine of $2,400

  • 61-70 km/h over the limit: Fine of $2,600

  • 71-80 km/h over the limit: Fine of $2,800

  • 81-90 km/h over the limit: Fine of $3,000

  • Over 90 km/h: Fine of $3,300

Court Penalties for Exceeding Speed Limits


When speeding in Sydney, the stakes are high, especially if the case goes to court. Invictus Legal provides an expert defence for those facing court-imposed penalties for speeding. The court can impose fines and driving disqualifications based on the severity of the speeding offence. For example:

  • Exceeding the speed limit by not more than 10 km/h can result in a court-imposed fine of up to $2,200 for both light and heavy vehicles.

  • For exceeding the speed limit by more than 10 km/h but not more than 20 km/h, the fine remains at $2,200.

  • The pattern continues with a $2,200 fine for exceeding the limit by more than 20 km/h but not more than 30 km/h.

  • A significant jump occurs for those exceeding the limit by more than 30 km/h but not more than 45 km/h, with a potential $2,200 fine and a minimum disqualification of 3 months.

  • The most severe penalty is for those exceeding the speed limit by more than 45 km/h, facing up to $3,300 in fines and a minimum 6-month disqualification.
