Speed Awareness Course
What is a speed awareness course?
Speed awareness courses are occasionally offered by local councils to people who have been stopped for speeding as an alternative to having points put on their licence. Drivers have to pay for this course and it can sometimes end up costing more than the speeding fine itself. The benefit to undertaking a course like this is that the points and conviction do not stay on your driving record. Having convictions on your licence will invariably put up the cost of your car insurance, so if this option is available to you it could be a good alternative to points.
