The TTC Group has been awarded the contract to run diversion courses for motorists in Scotland who commit offences of careless and inconsiderate driving.
Advanced driving instructors will deliver the National Driver Alertness Course (NDAC) which aims to “improve road safety by educating drivers instead of prosecuting them”. The course will be offered to motorists referred by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.
The NDAC scheme replaces the National Driver Improvement Scheme which was introduced in Scotland in 2007. The contract was previously held by BSM, part of the AA Group.
Alan Prosser, TTC Group’s NDORS director, said: "We are very pleased to have won the contract and aim to continue the good work to help improve road safety in Scotland and reduce road casualties by educating drivers and riders who commit traffic offences."
Motorcyclists whose riding behaviour causes concern will attend the RIDE course which is currently running across the rest of the UK and is now being introduced into Scotland.
The TTC Group, which educates more than 300,000 drivers, riders, cyclists and pedestrians, introduced the NDAC course across England and Wales in 2010.
TTC Group says that as a result of the new contract jobs will be created for driving instructors in Scotland and for administration staff at TTC’s HQ in Shropshire.
