If you have information to add about the criteria for speed awareness courses for a particular force, please add it to the table in the following format.
N.B. ACPO is limit + 10% + 2mph (e.g. 35 in a 30)

The ACPO recommended basic qualifying criteria are as follows:
  • the speed of the driver / rider makes them eligible for a Speed Awareness Course (ie not greater than limit +10%+9mph).
  • the driver / rider has NOT attended a Speed Awareness Course within the last 3 years,
  • the driver / rider must agree to abide by the terms and conditions of the offer of the Speed Awareness Course (including timescales for completion - typically 4 months from date of alleged offence).
