    Smile Phew!!!

    Following on from this, the letter dropped on the mat this morning - so I opened it with a little trepidation.

    Thankfully they opted for Option 2 - the Driver Improvement Course. A day and a half course that'll cost me £150. I've got no problems doing it as I can only benefit from it - we'd all learn something by going on one of these courses.

    It's most definitely better than a summons and a potential undue care and attention charge with the points, fine and insurance implications.

    So I'm sending off the acceptance form today and wait for the dates to be arranged.

    Just one other thing Duncan, You don't need to wear the lycra shorts while you do this. Especially the pink ones...

    lol - not at all! I rang up to confirm some details and the guy was saying that they often have 80/85 year olds who have obviously had an accident or a bump. As it serves no purpose to haul them before a court, they offer them the DIC as their aim is to make them better drivers.

    What often happens is that they don't get far down the road before the course/test is stopped due to the instructor feeling that is a likely chance of some incident. This makes the driver then realise that maybe it's time to stop driving and they surrender their license.
