I'd like to find out if I'm eligible for a National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme course

You may be eligible for a National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme course if:

  • 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
          63 mph in a 50 mph area­­
  • you contact us to request a course within 90 days of the offence
  • you haven’t already completed a course within three years or are booked on an upcoming course
  • you can send us your correct driving licence details and date of birth. If you are a foreign national you should have been issued with a DVLA licence and can send us the DVLA number. If you do not hold a UK licence then you must send us the correct licence number and country of issue.

Please note: There is no legal entitlement to a course, these are offered at the sole discretion of police, and the courts have no powers regarding courses. If an offer for a course is made to you, the police are at liberty to withdraw the offer at any time up to the point that the course has been successfully completed.
