Your Belt/Your Life
From 1 October 2012, officers who stop vehicles where either the driver or any passengers are not wearing seatbelts should refer offenders to ‘Your Belt/Your Life‘, an online training course.
The course costs £36 and includes a test element which must be passed within 28 days of the date of the offence. Offenders details will be recorded by the officer and AADrivetech will contact the offender with information of what to do next. The course takes about 30 minutes to complete. Anyone who does not successfully pass the test will be issued with a £100 fine by the police and the £36 already paid for the course will not be refunded.
The ‘Your Belt/Your Life’ scheme was developed because evidence suggests that motorists who are offered education and support are less likely to re-offend than those who are simply handed a fixed penalty notice.
This course is not delivered or administered by Essex County Council.
Any queries concerning this course should be directed to the AA DriveTech customer care team on 0344 264 6349.
