SpeedUlator: Speed Awareness Course Checker

Interactive Checker Speeding Speed

Do you think you've been caught speeding recently?

You may be eligible to take a speed awareness course as an alternative to penalty points (and a fine).

There are several factors that will affect your chances, which is why we've created the SpeedUlator Speed Awareness Course Checker. It's interactive, easy to use and will help you decide what to do next.

Try the Speed-U-Lator here:

Simply click on the relevant answer and you'll be led through the next steps.

If you now know from our checker that you will not be offered a speed awareness course, why not read through some of the other options available to you in our speeding section.

Rollsroyce - Your Question:
Does anyone know how I can check when I last went on a speed awareness course? It was roughly 3 years afo but im not to sure when exactly. Would be much appreciated if anyone can help me thanks

Our Response:
Contact the course provider or the venue where you attended the course. Failing that the police authority for the area in which you were caught speeding should have a record of the offence date.

I was caught on the same day twice northbound and southbound. One being my first offence and then obviously my second offence. First offence in the morning I was doing 84 in a 70 and they have offered me a speed awareness course, second in the evening same spot but southbound I was doing 88 in a 70 and I have been told 3 points and a fine which I'm fine with. What I need to know is because I've been caught twice can I still take the speed awareness course the first offence and then accept the three points for the second or does getting caught in the evening rule out my eligibility for the speed awareness course?

Chaz - Your Question:
Is there a way to find out when you took a speed awareness course? I did one a few years ago but have lost all the paper work and need to find out when I took the course for insurance quotes

Our Response:
Can you remember the name of the course provider? If so, contact them, they usually keep records.

Woodsy - Your Question:
Ive been done for speeding done 36 on a 30 but in november last year I dome 47 in a 3 and got 3 points and a fine can I can I get on the speed awereness course this time around or will I get a fine and 3 points

Our Response:
It's entirely up to the police to decide whether or not to offer an awareness course, so we really can't say unfortunately.

First offence, 63 on a 50 zone. The cut off speed for the awareness course is if you're doing 64 or over but I just done 63 (this was on March) so new laws will not apply. Will I get awareness course option? Would be great to get a reply, thank you

Kaps - Your Question:
I was recently caught doing 36 in a 30 zone by a mobile camera unit. I was unsure who the driver could be as myself , my wife and my father in law all took the car within a 30minute period along that same stretch of road which is just around the corner from my house. My wife to drop off the kids , father in law to buy a newspaper , after which I travelled to work. They have sent me photographic evidence but it clearly states on the letter "The photographic evidence is to identify the vehicle only and not the driver." you can just about make out the driver (me) but I don't want to break any rules by using a photo which they clearly say is to identify the vehicle ONLY !? What should I do

Our Response:
You can request further photos if you're unsure who could have been driving.

I was doing 35mph in a 30. I was unaware of this as it was road works. It went from 50mph I to 30 very quickly. I'm wondering if I will be offered the course. I did one last June. Please help
NBCW - 29-Apr-17 @ 4:08 PM
I think I was flashed but I'm not to sure as I didn't see a flash, I was doing 30 something In a 30 zone, I haven't had my licence 2 years but I already have 6 points from my provisional, will I lose my licence or will the police offer me a course, if I lose my licence I lose my job if I lose my job I lose my house !
Wes - 19-Apr-17 @ 8:01 AM
I have 9 points but never done a course , I am within boundaries to be eligible otherwise ie 57mph in a 50 Would I be able to do a course

fil2017 - Your Question:
Been caught speeding doing 36mph in a 30 been given fixed penalty and not been offered a speed awareness course and havent been on one in the last 3 years, can I appeal?

Our Response:
Unfortunately not. All speed awareness courses are offered at the discretion of the police, so there's no automatic right to one.

twowheelfan - Your Question:
I was recently flashed by a camera whilst riding my motorcycle in a 30 mile an hour area, I have received a NIP and am considering an appeal as a car pulled out of a junction in my direction requiring me to accelerate to avoid an accident, the camera is right after the junction and recorded my speed as 37.I already have 6 points on my licence ( due to reach 3 years in Sep and Dec respectively ) and have since been ultra careful as a result.Am I on a hiding to nothing or is there a reasonable chance of the points being waved?Many thanks

Our Response:
We can't really advise on this. If the points are crucial, it might be worth seeing if you can speak to a motoring lawyer with regard to pleading mitigation. On the other hand, there's a chance you may be offered a speed awareness course, in which case, you will not be adding to your current points total.

Liz - Your Question:
My insurers need to know the date I did a speed awareness course. I have no idea so how do I find out. I think it was Thames Valley Police but they cant tell me and the course provider (AA DriveTech) don't keep records longer than 6 months. Please Help! My insurance runs out in 2 days!

Our Response:
How did you pay for the course...could your credit card statements or bank statements help?

taz - Your Question:
Hi, I got a NIP on 26/01/2017, Notice issue date 24/01/2017. date of offence 08/01/2017. I rejected the NIP based on section 1 (3) of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988. i just had correspondence stating that; the Notice was sent to me by first class, on 11/01/2017. how is this possible? when the Notice issue Date is 24/01/2017.

Our Response:
If the actual NIP is dated 24th January we think you have a case, unless they can prove it was sent elsewhere in the interim (i.e if you're not the registered keeper etc).
