National Speed Awareness
Whether excessive or inappropriate – is a contributory factor in the majority of road traffic accidents. The greater the speed the more serious the incident is likely to be. The more we as drivers understand that the safer our roads will be for everyone.
What is it?
The National Speed Awareness Scheme is an alternative to prosecution for some speeding offences.
Who is it for?
The Speed Awareness course is for drivers and riders who have been detected speeding within an agreed threshold.
How does it work?
The 4¼-hour course is not a soft option. The client must pay for the course and give the time to attend.
The course caters for all classes of drivers and there will be no discrimination regarding age, ability, language, ethnic origin or ability.
When does it happen?
The scheme allows drivers or riders to be 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.
How much does it cost?
