Coming Soon !!!!! - Virtual Classroom Speed Awareness course. Please note for Derbyshire Speeding Offences which are eligible for a National Speed Awareness Course - DRIVE TECH and some other providers will be offering an on line Speed Awareness Course shortly. This will enable you to book and take the course at home if you have the suitable computer equipment, tablet or smartphone. This will then ensure you get the essential Road Safety training and therefore do not attract the fine and penalty points on your driving licence provided the course is completed. Clients booked on the NSAC (National Speed Awareness Course) will be able to enrol on the iNSAC (Virtual Classroom Speed Awareness) course. The course duration is 2 hours 30 minutes and is completed entirely online using the Microsoft TEAMS platform. Users can access it via almost any device including a laptop/mac/ipad or smartphone. Please keep checking the DRIVE TECH website and other course provider websites and contact them when the booking process has started. For those drivers offered a Motorway Awareness Course the online course should be available very soon.
The CREST team launched speed awareness courses in February 2008.
A speed awareness course is an educational alternative to penalty points and a fine, that some people may be eligible for. Your eligibility for a course is determined by whether you have completed one in the last three years, your speed and how promptly you respond to the Notice of Intended Prosecution. The course consists of a four hour interactive presentation and discussion on all aspects of driving and speed control in particular, in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The current price for a speed awareness course in Derbyshire is £91.00 inclusive of VAT (prices are subject to change).
