SPEED AWARENESS COURSES EXPLAINED 

 
If you’ve been caught speeding and want to avoid points on your licence, you may be eligible to attend a Speed Awareness Course. 
 
What is a Speed Awareness Course? 
The National Speed Awareness Course Scheme aims to re-educate motorists to be more mindful of their speed and the impact it can have on other road users, by encouraging them to change their attitudes towards excessive or inappropriate speed, preventing the driver from re-offending. 
 
It’s designed to encourage participation and interaction, so there's no need to worry that you would be sitting around for hours being talked at or suffering from boredom by a PowerPoint presentation. 
 
You don’t have to take any kind of test and you are not required to do any actual driving. As long as you complete the workshop to the trainer’s satisfaction, you will pass the course and can go on your way. 
 
The course itself usually lasts about four hours and will cost around £100, though this will vary slightly depending on the venue location.

50 mph ....................57 mph ..........................64 mph 
60 mph ....................68 mph ..........................75 mph 
70 mph ....................79 mph ..........................86 mp
 
Different police forces may however have different limits. 
 
If you have taken a Speed Awareness Course in the last three years prior to your most recent speeding offence, you will not be offered to attend a further course and so it is likely that you will incur at least 3 penalty points and a fine. 
 
What are the insurance implications of a Speed Awareness Course? 
Though it’s true that you won’t have incurred a driving conviction on your licence, it may still be something that we will have to declare to your insurers as you have still broken the Road Traffic Act. It is therefore extremely important that you advise us if you have attended a cou 
 
Some insurance companies may increase your premium as a result, but not all of them do.
