The Road Safety Team offers driver training courses to meet the changing needs of new and experienced drivers.

The Team also delivers Driver Awareness Training Courses on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary.

These courses are offered as an alternative to prosecution for speeding offences within the lower threshold.

We genuinely believe that education is more beneficial than prosecution. Feedback from the courses shows that drivers leave with an updated knowledge of speed limits, enhanced driving skills and more importantly, fully understand the consequences of speeding.

Time and time again participants on the course have said this training should be available, and would benefit, all drivers of all ages and experience.
