National Driver Alertness Course
What is it?
We work with Gloucestershire Constabulary to provide Driver Alertness Courses as an alternative to attending court for some motoring offences. It is a full day’s course with the morning session focussing on the theory with practical driving in a car during the afternoon.
Who is it for?
The course is offered by Police as an alternative to attending court for some driving without due care and attention offences.
How does it work?
It aims to improve driving skills, attitudes and behaviour. It is not a soft option. The course is underpinned by several psychological theories. It encourages learning through discussion and discovery. An integral part of the course is a logbook in which drivers complete various tasks and activities and make notes about what they want to change.
Drivers and riders are offered a course in the area of their choice, providing the police force in question has adopted the National Scheme arrangements.
Clients may only attend a course once in a three year period.
When does it happen?
Courses are held over one full day, usually on a Friday, and start at 9.00am and ending at 4.45pm.
How much does it cost?
The fee is £160.
Where do I attend?
Courses are held in Gloucester.
