What’s Driving Us Courses


The National What’s Driving Us? Course has been redesigned and the new version of this course will go live from 1st November.

The times for the new What’s Driving Us? Course will be:

AM Session: 8:45am to 12:45pm
PM Session: 1:30pm till 5:30pm

The What’s Driving Us? course was launched in April 2012 by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) under the National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme (NDORS) and has been put into place to give the Police discretion to offer drivers who commit certain road traffic offences e.g. for jumping a red traffic light, the opportunity to attend a course as an alternative to prosecution or the Fixed Penalty system of a fine and penalty points.

As drivers we don’t often get the chance to think about what we like and dislike about driving – or how other people’s driving affects us.  What’s Driving Us? provides you the opportunity to address those issues. Through presentations and discussions you will gain insight into the decisions that people make on the road.  We don’t judge the way you drive, rather we encourage you to think about your driving in more detail.

The course welcomes people of all ages and all levels of driving experience.  Courses are usually relaxed and people tell us that they enjoy taking part. 

There is no need for any special preparation: there are no tests and no driving is involved.  By the end of the course, we hope that drivers will have a deeper understanding of how they can keep themselves and other people safe on the roads.
