Kite, of Bodiam Road, Sandhurst, Cranbrook, committed the offence on May 31 last year on the A303 dual carriageway near Wincanton, where there is a 70mph limit.

As well as being disqualified, he was fined £346 and ordered to pay a £35 victim surcharge and £85 towards prosecution costs. His total court bill amounts to £466
