Learning From The Nottingham Speed Awareness Course

If caught driving above the speed limit in Nottingham motorists can choose an alternative to prosecution by attending a speed awareness course. There is no fine or points added to the driving licence if the course is attended. Let's look at the course content and what driving instructors can teach pupils to help prevent them breaking the speed limit in the first place.

There are certain criteria which must be met in order to be eligible for the course. The driver must admit to the offence within forty two days of it occurring. The speed above the posted limit must be no more than ten percent plus nine and you cannot have attended such a course within the last three years. Red light offences would not be considered eligible.

Courses in speed awareness generally last four hours and take place in a classroom setting. They are non judgemental with an emphasis on education. Those attending are actively encouraged to contribute to the session making it an interactive experience. The main thrust being to assist drivers in forming a personal speed awareness strategy.

When first embarking on a course of driver training it is important for instructors to help pupils understand the reasons why there are limits. It can be ineffective to simply teach obeying signs as a legal requirement if there is a lack of understanding as to the risk involved at higher speeds. Involving the pupil in discussion about the traffic situation and stopping distances should anything unexpected happen would be more effective.

Attitude and personal beliefs are very important factors in driving and it is these elements that often contribute to the breaking of posted limits and many other rules of the road. Often learners will quote things said by a family member who drives, giving a clue to the adopted attitude of the pupil. Instructors should always be firm and diplomatic but not hesitate to challenge any negative attitudes. If handled correctly early on in the training there is a greater chance that the learner will change their attitude towards speed and go on to be safer drivers.

Those taking driving lessons Nottingham should be taught about the disadvantages of excessive speed. This may not necessarily mean breaking the limit. In traffic flow constant acceleration followed by harsh braking uses more petrol and boosts the risk of a rear end collision. If pedestrians are close by then the actual limit may still be too fast so think about stopping distances and choose an appropriate speed. Nottingham driving instructors can help prevent people actually reaching a pointy where they must attend a course by covering the subject early and ensure driving test candidates fully understand their responsibilities on the road.
