Sundar, if I understand you correctly, you have a camera that you want to use but want to test that camera's performance under different speeding conditions, yes? And, evidently, you do not want to do a test with that camera and actual cars?
Which camera do you want to use?
John, yes. your understanding is correct. Below is the camera model i am planning to use

When we needed to test cameras for an LPR application project, we set up a pole with the camera in an empty parking lot and drove past it multiple times at varying speeds until we had the settings dialed in.
John is correct. You will need some light to reflect off of the plates, back to the camera at night. But, it doesn't need to be integrated. You can also use external IR, or there may be enough existing lighting in the area to suffice.
However, if you are just trying to get daytime images of license plates, lighting shouldn't be much of a concern in outdoor areas. But, if your shot is in a parking garage or shaded area, you will still need to evaluate that on site.
I've seen demos of LPR/LPC cameras where there was a set of license plates mounted on a wheel that could be rotated at different speeds. This lets you test shutter speeds/motion blur and different lighting setups. It's not a perfect test, but it might be good for initial settings, and then you can do a more real-world test once you have basic settings figured out.
Thank you guys! The camera make is not a problem..As it is required only during day time i have opted this. I can go for a camera with IR which is similar to HIKVISION DS-2CD4A25FWD-IZ(H)(S. However, i was bit worrying about LPR detection while speed..how to ensure the same without going for practical testing
