Because we can all be better drivers

Using a range of interactive and informative modules TTC’s expert trainers help motorists expand their understanding of speed limits and recognise the negative consequences of speeding in order to change behaviours and reduce reoffending.

It is a behavioural change course for people who have committed a speeding offence, and who have been diverted from court by the police using a Conditional Offer Fixed Penalty Notice (COFPN).

Course information

This course is only for people who have been referred by the police to attend a National Speed Awareness Course. You will know if this applies to you because you will have received a letter offering you the course. It is only offered to drivers and riders who have committed low-end speeding offences and who have not taken a National Speed Awareness Course in the three years prior to their most recent offence​.

Can I change my course booking?

Providing there is sufficient time within the deadline given by the police, you can change your course once you have booked. There may be a rearrangement fee for changing your course, which is outlined in our course terms and conditions . Amend your booking using the same UKROEd portal as you used to book your original course.

Deciding whether to do an online or a classroom course

Choose a course that best suits your own needs, classroom or online. You will be able to see all the available locations, dates and times once you start the booking process and select TTC as your provider. Check our resources for handy guides to our online and classroom formats.

Original photo ID

You must also show a photo ID in order to attend the course. This must be an original physical document like a passport or a driving licence. This is so that the trainer can register your attendance properly.

If you do not have photo ID, please speak to the police force who referred you to the course, prior to your course date.
Check the terms and conditions on our resources page for more details.

Offering additional support

TTC strives to create an inclusive and respectful learning environment that accommodates all individuals’ unique needs and backgrounds.

To ensure that you get the most out of attending your course with TTC, please let us know if you have any specific requirements that we can help you with.

Bringing an interpreter

The course is only available in English and Welsh languages. If you think your English language skills might restrict your ability to complete the course, or affect your experience, we recommend you make arrangements for an interpreter to help you. Although it is your responsibility to do this, we will need to know who this person is as they will also need to provide ID. They need to be at least 16 years old. Check out our advice page for all the information you need.

About the National Speed Awareness Course

The course is a relaxed and informative interactive workshop facilitated by a licensed NDORS (National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme) trainer. There is no police involvement. There’s no driving involved, and you won’t take a test which you can pass or fail. We only ask that you engage fully with the course content and stay until the end. As it is theory-only, you can opt to do the course conveniently online via your own compatible device such as a computer or tablet, or in-person in a classroom.
