National Motorway Awareness Courses

The National Motorway Awareness Course is classroom-based course targeted at motorists (drivers and riders) who have committed an offence in restricted areas on Smart Motorways. It lasts for 3 hours and 45 minutes, including 15 minutes to register clients at the start of the course and a 15-minute break.

The course aims to make Smart Motorways safer and more efficient, providing a better experience for people who use them and work on them.

It does so by:

  • Increasing knowledge of the meaning of smart motorway signs;
  • Increasing understanding of why variable speed limits are imposed;
  • Increasing understanding of how to use emergency areas safely and appropriately;
  • Increasing personal responsibility for decisions about complying with rules on smart motorways;
  • Increasing perceptions of control over complying with smart motorway regulations.
