Picked up my first speeding offense ever in my 8 years of driving . Really annoyed at myself, but thats by-the-by now. (More annoying was i got it in my 1.6 MK5 about 5 days before i picked up the 1.9 CDTi SRi...).
Either way, 36 in a 30, was told i would be offerred a 'Driver Awareness Scheme' placement. Didnt really know what it was, so spoke to my father in law, said it was quite civilised, coffee, biscuits and a general chit chat, no condacendingness, no telling off, just a sensible talk about your actions and how speed affects things etc. Said it's all done in a group.
Now i've had my confirmation through, £70.00 for the course, rather than £60.00 fine and 3 points, so i'm going for the fact it won't increase my insurance over the next few years, so definately the best bet in my opinion.
Has anyone else been on one, got any comments or info about how yours went?
Look forward to hearing.
Cheers in Advance.
