Motorists stopped for minor traffic infringements may be eligible for a new driver retraining course under a pilot scheme launched by police in the West Midlands, West Mercia and South Yorkshire.
The pilot scheme has been launched with help from the TTC Group. The 2¼ hour course, with a driving instructor, is offered to offenders instead of receiving a fine or points on their licence.
Alan Prosser, manager of the National Driver Offender Retraining Schemes for the TTC Group, said: “It is aimed at people who come to the attention of police when their driving falls below what is normally expected of a competent driver.
“It is aimed at minor offences for people who have unintentionally broken the rules of the road and not had a collision. Everyone makes mistakes through lack of concentration or some people have simply forgotten parts of the Highway Code.”
