Speed awareness courses launched in Surrey

12.21 | 12 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.
