Speed Awareness

Speed is a contributory factor in most serious road crashes and injuries to casualties. Driving is unpredictable and if something unexpected happens on the road ahead, it is a driver's speed that will determine whether they can stop in time, and if they can’t stop, what the impact speed will be.

The greater the impact speed, the greater the chance of death to a person or persons. A pedestrian hit at 30mph has a one in five chance of being killed. This rises significantly to a one in three chance if they are hit at 35mph.

Do you know the speed limits for certain vehicles on certain roads? Do you know the national speed limit on single roads, dual carriageways and motorways? Would you know if you were driving on a dual carriageway or a single road? This course is to teach people the limits of speeding and the consequences of just speeding an extra few miles per hour.

This course will teach people who speeds, the types of speed related crashes, being aware of your speed, understanding speed limits, stopping distance, impact speeds, factors influencing your stopping distance, maintaining a safe speed and much more.

With every purchased online course comes a free online risk assessment form, which when completed acts as a record of your completion.

Once a course has been purchased it will expire one calendar year from the day it is bought. When a user has passed and completed a main course, they will receive a certificate of achievement which lasts for three years; refresher course certificates will expire one calendar year from completion.
