National Speed Awareness Course

The National Speed Awareness Course is an engaging and interesting short behaviour change intervention that clients enjoy and that leads to a sustained change in how they drive. The course is designed to take people on a journey that shows them how to identify the speed limits, helps them recognise why it is not safe to speed, the potential consequences to them and others if they speed and if they were to crash, how they can recognise and resist pressure to speed from themselves and others, and that without concentrating it is easy not to notice hazards. This aims to motivate them to comply with speed limits. Finally, they make an action plan about how they are going to drive differently in the future so that they avoid speeding.  The course duration is 2 hours 45 minutes.

Important Notice: As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the vast majority of courses are still being delivered online. For most people this is a convenient option as it allows them to take part in their own home without having to travel and mix with others. To take part, you will need access to a device i.e. tablet, laptop or desktop with microphone and camera, with reliable internet connection capable of streaming video.  Smart phones may be used, however the course will be far more effective if you have a larger screen. You will need enough charge to last 3 hours so it's best to be plugged in to the mains supply.

If you do not have the technology to take part in an online course, we are offering a limited number of classroom sessions at our venues in Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds, on a first come first served basis.

Please be aware you will be in a classroom with up to 17 other people and measures to minimise the risk of infection will be in place at the venue, which must be respected.

Please ensure you read the Frequently Asked Questions, and Terms and Conditions PRIOR to booking your place.
