Driver Alertness Courses


The Association of Chief Police Officers of England, Wales & Northern Ireland (ACPO) favour education rather than punishment for certain offences where the driver would benefit from attending an appropriate course rather receiving a fine and penalty points.

Leicestershire County Council provides the National Driver Alertness Course on behalf of Leicestershire Police which replaced the National Driver Improvement Scheme. This consists of a one day training course which involves a mixture of classroom and on the road sessions.

When a motorist is involved in a Road Traffic Incident and there is sufficient evidence which indicates that they have been “Driving Without Due Care and Attention, or Driving Without Reasonable Consideration for Other Road Users” contrary to Section 3 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, or other like offences, they may be given an option to attend a National Driver Alertness Course.

This is offered as an alternative to having the incident referred to the Crown Prosecution Service. This would usually result in a summons to attend court, where they may receive a fine and penalty points on their driving licence.

When an offer of a course is made by Leicestershire Police, information about the scheme is sent to the person/s involved together with details on how to book a course in your chosen area.
