Kent County Council has renewed the TTC Group’s contract to continue providing driver education courses in the county as an alternative to a fine or points on a licence after a motoring offence.
Kent County Council first appointed the TTC Group in 2005 to run the former National Driver Improvement Scheme, which has subsequently become the National Driver Alertness Course (NDAC).
The contract has been extended to include two new courses, What’s Driving Us? and Driving 4 Change, which are designed to get drivers thinking about the way they drive.
Alan Prosser, TTC Group, said: “We have had a long and successful working partnership with Kent County Council to help them to reduce road casualties in the region.
“The TTC Group was one of the forerunners to introduce the scheme to educate motorists as an alternative to a fine or points on the licence.
“As motorists we all want to stay safe on the roads and in Kent many have benefitted from the course to refresh their knowledge and update their road driving craft.”
Steve Horton, the council’s road safety team leader, said: “I’m very pleased to have been able to offer this current contract to the TTC Group as they have a proven track record of delivering an excellent service to us. It also allows us to continue the excellent partnership we’ve had with them since 2005.
“Affecting driver behaviour is at the heart of all of our casualty reduction activity in Kent.”
