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.


Courses are available online, or in person at our venues in Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich and Lowestoft.  Priority for in-person courses will be given to those without the technology available to take part online.  There will be up to 24 other people on each in-person course.

To complete online you will need access to a device i.e. a 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.
