National Speed Awareness Course (NSAC)
The speed awareness course (NSAC) is offered when a motorist has exceeded the speed limit within certain thresholds. The course is designed to make our communities safer by helping people to drive at a safe speed within the speed limit. The course contains information to: improve knowledge of speed limits and skills in identifying speed limit areas; increase understanding of the negative consequences of speeding; increased awareness of the benefits of complying with speed limits; increase skills in recognising and managing pressure to speed; increase intentions and reduce barriers to drive or ride at a safe speed.
The course lasts approximately two hours and 45 minutes, including a break midway through the session. Clients need to join the session 15 minutes prior to the course, to allow for licence checks and so the course commences promptly.
Safe and Considerate Driving (SCD)
This course is offered to drivers when a Police Officer deems they have been driving without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration to other road users. This course comprises of a classroom based session followed by a practical, on the road driving session by an approved driving instructor in the instructor’s vehicle.
Please be aware that you must pass an eyesight check at the start of the course. You need to be able to read a number plate from a distance of 20.5m (67ft), so please ensure you have your glasses / contact lenses with you if you wear them when driving. Failing the eyesight check will render you ineligible to continue with the course and you will need to re-book which will be subject to a further booking fee.
The course is a full day and will include both theory and practical elements. You will need to arrive in good time for registration and eyesight checks at 09:30. The course will finish at 17:00.
At the time of booking the assistant will ask you whether you drive a manual or automatic vehicle so that the right type of vehicle is provided for you.
If your vehicle has been adapted for you in any way, it may be possible to use your own vehicle for the practical element rather than the instructors’ vehicle. Please discuss this with the assistant when you arrange your booking.
Due to the practical driving element on this course, we recommend you ring us on 01482 399065 to book your place (Mon-Fri 9am – 12pm). We will ask you some extra questions about your licence and the type of vehicle you require for the practical session.
