Driver Alertness Course
The National Driver Alertness Course has been created as a replacement for the National Driver Improvement Course and is offered as an alternative to prosecution to drivers who are deemed by a police officer to have been involved in "driving without due care and attention" incidents.
The course is only offered to drivers who have not attended a Driver Alertness or Driver Improvement Course anywhere in the country within the last three years. Since this is a national course, drivers can choose to take a course in any area that offers them, regardless of where the original offence occurred. Costs may vary between areas, but courses in the West Midlands currently cost £140 (subject to an annual review).
Workshops last for one day and consist of:
- Four hours theory
- Three and a half hours practical on-road tuition
