I'd like to find out if I'm eligible for a National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme course
Once you’ve responded to the notice, and done so within the required timeframe, you could be sent:
an option to attend a driver awareness course under the National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme
a fixed penalty notice
or a letter telling you to go to court
The police will consider the following grounds when assessing your eligibility for the driver awareness course:
your speed narrowly exceeded the limit and falls within the guidelines set out by the National Police Chief Council (NPCC) up to:
31 mph in a 20 mph area
42 mph in a 30 mph area
53 mph in a 40 mph area
64 mph in a 50 mph area
75 mph in a 60 mph area
86 mph in a 70 mph area
you haven’t already completed a course within three years or are booked on an upcoming course
Please note: There's no legal entitlement to a course, these are offered at the sole discretion of police, and the courts have no powers over courses. If an offer for a course is made to you, the police can withdraw the offer at any time before the course has been successfully completed.
You'll be required to send us your correct driving licence details and date of birth. If you're a foreign national and have been issued with a licence by the DVLA then you should provide the details of the licence issued by the DVLA. If you don't hold a UK licence then you must send us the licence number and country of issue of your non-UK licence.
