How will I know if a speed awareness course is an option?
If you’re stopped for speeding by the police, or are caught by a speed camera, you’ll be sent a notice of intended prosecution within 14 days. If you’re eligible to go on a course, you’ll be given three options:
- a speed awareness course
- a fixed penalty notice
- a court hearing to appeal the offence
You’ll be given a date, time and location to attend the speed awareness course. You can choose to accept the offer or decline and take the fixed penalty instead.
