Speedo testing

Hi guys, I need to know where I can get my speedo tested. I got picked up for speeding last night, alleged speed 10km/h over that indicated on speedo. Would it be possible for my speedo to be reading 10% too slow? If nothing else I need to know how much to allow in future, while I sit by the letter box hoping I don't get any letters from Sen Sgt Ritchie...

Re: Speedo testing

Here in Sydney the best place is called General Instruments at Lidcombe. You just drive up anytime and they calibrate the speedo for $60. I'm going again this week in the ute to fight a similar VicPol scam ticket.

Re: Speedo testing

Anyone know of place here in Melbourne that can do this? and will they give a report on speedo reading and actual reading? The old man got done the otherday for 4km over in a 80 zone, he's never been suspended and has a very clean record. Thinking of taking it to court if I can get proof that there's a 8-10% variance in readings.
