Speed Awareness course: Nick Hodgson

Home > News > Speed Awareness course: Nick Hodgson



Nick Hodgson, 52, a former West Yorkshire traffic officer, said he was also pleased that the course fee goes towards road safety education.

He said the 4-hour session at the Priory Campus in Barnsley, delivered by TTC trainers, was “captivating” and reminded him of forgotten driving skills.

People from “all walks of life” attended the course and were equally full of praise, he said.

“I was pleased to hear that course fees make a positive contribution towards road safety and increasing road safety awareness,” said Mr Hodgson, who lives in Wakefield.

Mr Hodgson, who left the force in 1990, said he was caught speeding at 35mph in Rotherham Road after a loss of concentration.

He said: “The trainer was talking about reading the road ahead which as an advanced driver I know all about but it was surprising how many people did not know about hazard perception and looking ahead.

“I came away from the course having re-learned quite a bit that I had forgotten. There were so many of us on the course who thought it was brilliant.”

The speed awareness course is designed to be informative and a positive experience for those who attend.
