Are some car insurers killing off Speed Awareness Courses?
Responsible department: Department for Transport
Some car insurers are now increasing premiums for drivers who complete Speed Awareness Courses, despite them not being convicted of any offence. Perversely they are penalising drivers for choosing an option that is proven to improve driving standards. This is illogical and unfair, it deters others from taking the course and could affect its future availability. Insurers should promote Speed Awareness Courses, instead some penalise drivers who complete them. We the undersigned believe that the government should challenge insurers to stop this practice.
