Speed Awareness Course - Afterwards

I set off in good time to get to the venue in Ashford at the Ashford Enterprise Centre in the Tower School. 

There were 24 of us miscreants that had chosen to go on the course rather than get the fine and the associated penalty points on our licences. A wide spectrum of men and women aged from 25 to 75.  All of us had exceed the posted limit by 9 miles or less.

The session wasn't as bad as the advanced paperwork made out. Not draconian at all. The instructors Tim and Ian took us through subjects such as speed awareness, eco driving and hazard perception. I was pleased that they had a section on blind spots and the difference between looking and seeing, with motorcycles at the forefront.

All in all, a good course and I have learned quite a bit.
