To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what guidance she has issued to police authorities on the holding of speed awareness courses during the covid-19 outbreak; where live classroom courses are not available, what alternatives exist for people with no internet provision or access to a webcam and microphone; and if she will make a statement.
The management of speed awareness courses is an operational matter for individual police forces and course providers who decide on the format and content of courses. Course providers do provide clear joining instructions for each person attending an online course. If individuals have poor IT skills or IT access providers can work with them via their call centres, to assist course completion on a case by case basis. The police are working with providers to develop alternative delivery methods for special characteristic groups for example a booklet with follow-up consultation.
