    Default speed awareness course

    last year, having been done by a speed camera, I was offered the chance to go on of these rather than have 3 points.

    It still cost me 60 sovs and it was not as unpleasant as i had been led to beleive.

    Anyone else been on one?

    I went on one of these, I was quite pleasantly surprised, I particularly enjoyed the driving & the running commentry, After i had done that the instructor asked why i was even there assuming that all speeders are bad drivers !!

    I said it was an Off Day

    Speed in one mans hands is dangerous, in another it isn't, there are many standards of driver ability out there, ability to read the road rather than look out of the window, time of day, road conditions, or what I really mean is one road can require 20mph at one time of day and be safe enough for 40-50 at another.

    Ditto - as you can see from my link it was similar to what Dean did by the sound of it. Bit of classroom stuff, but then two afternoons of driving, getting into some advanced stuff with the guy we had - which was great. Really enjoyed it.
