New digital National Speed Awareness Course launched

The Safer Essex Roads Partnership (SERP) is now taking bookings for a new online version of the National Speed Awareness Course.

On 20 March, it was announced all NDORS classroom-based courses were being suspended for an initial 12-week period – due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

In response to the suspension, UKROEd has developed iNSAC – a new digital version of the National Speed Awareness Course.

Although much of the content of the iNSAC course remains similar to the classroom version, there are some changes:

  • The online course is shorter, lasting approximately two and a half hours, compared with the four hour classroom-based course
  • The ways in which course trainers interact with participants is different
  • Clients work in groups of eight with one trainer, whereas the classroom version is based on 24 clients and two trainers
  • Instead of receiving a logbook for the course, clients will need to have pen and paper available, as making notes and writing an action plan remain key parts of the online course

SERP is now taking bookings for the online course, which runs until 11 June. Bookings are also being taken for classroom courses from 12 June onwards. 

Both courses can be booked on the NDORS website.

Drivers with courses booked during the suspension period are being encouraged to go online and rebook. 

Due to coronavirus, SERP are unable to take any calls about bookings – and will contact all those affected in due course.

If you have any urgent enquiries, please email driverintervention@essex.gov.uk.
