Speed awareness

The National Speed Awareness Scheme aims to reduce the speed at which people drive by encouraging them to alter their attitudes towards excessive or inappropriate speed. Offered as an alternative to a speeding fine and penalty points, it helps drivers to gain a fuller understanding of why people drive above the speed limit and the true potential consequences of speeding.

The course is four hours in duration and the price of the Speed awareness course will vary depending on the training venue location you choose. 
The National Speed Awareness Scheme is run throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland by a selection of training providers.
To view all course locations that are available nationally please visit https://dors.police.uk/. You will need your driving licence number to hand. To view additional information on this national scheme please visit www.driver-improvement.co.uk.
