You may lose your license. Just realised you have only been driving a year.

Maybe a speed awareness course?

Lose her licence?? Highly unlikely.
Speed awareness course are for people who are just over the limit. Not sure of the figure as a % but it's something like up to 34mph in. 30 limit and maybe 45 in a 40. Any more than that and it's automatic points (3 I think) plus a fine of £100.
If it's a really massive amount over, then the points increase but someone would only lose their actual licence for Something mad, like double the limit.

Actually you may get away with 3 points as the new rules come into effect later this month. Sorry for misinformation I thought it was 1st April.

Lose her licence?? Highly unlikely. actually that is exactly what would happen if the new rules were in force. It will be 6 points for speeding and 6 points is the point where new drivers have their license revoked.

If it's a really massive amount over, then the points increase but someone would only lose their actual licence for Something mad, like double the limit. Having a license revoked is based on points, not speed.

How new is new for driving though? She's been on the road for a year.

And a massive speed violation would result in an automatic ban because the points incurred for that speed would take it up to that sanction.

How new is new for driving though? She's been on the road for a year.. 2 years.

So yes. Had the new rules been in force the OP could have been facing revocation of license.

If you go to court...
Standard for 64/50 is 3 points and a band A fine which is half of your relevant weekly income. There will be prosecution costs (usually £85 if you plead guilty) then a court surcharge on top (10% of fine with a minimum of £30).

If you receive six points you will have your licence revoked as you are a classified as a new driver, however it is unlikely given the speed that you will receive six, 3 is more likely. If you would like to confirm this please look at the Magistrates Court Sentencing Guidelines/ speeding section and the Dvla website you gov on new drivers.
