Speed awareness courses launched in Surrey

Monday 15th March 2010

Speeding motorists in Surrey now have the opportunity to go back to the classroom to refresh their driving skills, rather than picking up a £60 fine and three penalty points on their licence.

The courses, offered to drivers caught speeding just a few miles an hour over the limit, were officially launched on 26 February.

The four-hour classroom-based presentation, run by road safety specialists from AA DriveTech, is run at three different venues in Surrey.

The course aims to generate a better understanding of the consequences of speeding and raise awareness of the importance of sticking to speed limits. Drivers who meet the eligibility criteria will pay £73 to attend the course, which covers the cost of administering the scheme.  

Up to 5,000 motorists are expected to attend the course in the first year.
